18 Weeks Old

Tuesday, June 09, 2015

Dear Zach,

I'm really sorry that I'm writing this to you a day late, but I did take the photos yesterday so at least there's that! But you see we've all been quite poorly this week, so everything's been ignored apart from focusing on getting better.

You were the first to get ill, and it was really quite scary as we ended up having to go on a trip to hospital and get you checked over in A&E. Thankfully it was nothing too serious, just a bad throat infection. They gave us two bottles of medication and we were on our way home again. The hardest thing was that you weren't able to tell us what was wrong! It's been 5 days now and you're pretty much back to normal, although we do still have to give you medicine. When you first had it you would scream and spit it out but now you try and suck it out of the syringe - it's so funny to watch!

Because you've been ill we have had to cancel all of our plans this week which has been a shame but of course the most important thing has been getting you back to full health. I am particularly gutted that we missed your first ever Strawberry Fair which is an annual festival in Cambridge which I have been going to since I was tiny! I'm sure though that you'll enjoy it more next year anyway as you'll be more aware of what's going on!

Illness hasn't stopped you growing and developing and this week you've totally mastered rolling from your back to front this week which is really exciting! It's also a bit of a pain in the bum to be honest because it means that nappy changes are becoming a bit harder and I know it's just going to get worse the more mobile you are! You just want to be independent and explore, and I get it. But let me just change your bum first!

Lets hope that this week involves less illness, fewer cancelled plans and much more fun! I think we're due some now!

All our love as always little man, Mummy and Daddy xxx
