Where has all the time gone?

Wow, maternity leave is like this time warp. I feel like I'm constantly busy and the time just disappears. Even when I'm not so busy, I feel like my day goes by super quick.

Max is already 10 weeks old tomorrow. I still can't tell who he looks like. Me or the BFG. Although I like to think he looks like me. The BFG was really blonde with blue eyes when he was a baby - like "Children of the corn" blonde. The Asian gene is pretty strong! Max still has bluey-grey eyes at the moment, but we're not hopeful they will stay that way.


I really thought I'd go stir crazy spending every day with a baby who can't talk back. However, it's actually been quite fun. He's a great feeder and not a bad sleeper. Now that he's a bit more alert, when he's awake, it's a more interesting. I try to get out of the house at least once a day - even if it's a walk to the shops and back. The only thing is, he hates shopping. Every time we go to a shopping centre, the floors are too smooth and he just cracks it. He's more settled when bumping along the crappy sidewalks.


We still go through the arsenic hour, but both the BFG and I take it in our stride. We can go from this:


To this:


In the space of 2 seconds.

Yep, I have no qualms about whipping out the camera to take photo evidence of His Royal Unreasonable-ness.
