Paddy's first trip with Gram & Poppy

Now Paddy is weaned not only can I do things by myself he can do things without me.

Tuesday was his first trip with Gram and Poppy. They went to the Gold Coast to visit the Rockleys all day.

When he got home he pushed me aside and went straight down to Dad at the horses. He didn't miss a beat.

He is such a big boy now!

Paddy is Weaned

After 11 months I made the decision to wean Paddy. From the first night he took it on and hasn't looked back. He still wakes up in the middle of the night but just once instead of 5 or 6 times.

It was an incredibly hard decision and one that I really struggled with for a few weeks. The weaning processed sucked the big one but we got through it.
So it is bye bye to baby Paddy and hello to my big boy

But now I am feeling a bit like my old self. I have energy again and a real sense of my own personal space back - my body is now mine again. I don't have to worry about what I am eating (I have had two curries since the weaning) or whether I am drinking enough water.

I am even planning little things to do by myself - crazy I know! And slowly I can see the margarita waiting for me at the end of the tunnel.

Underwater World

I got a great deal for unlimited entry to Underwater World over 18 months for $50!

Paddy and I cashed in our first visit the other day.

He is still a bit little to sit and watch things but he loved the sharks and the stingrays in the underwater tunnel.

And yes, first time there we posed for the obligatory shark's mouth photo.
