20 months

Today Malachi is 20 months old.  He weighs 9.5kg, wears 9-12 month clothes and we are still breastfeeding.  He isn't walking yet but he loves to climb and pull my hair whenever he is in the ergo.

This week has been busy.  Yesterday Isaac went into school without crying for the first time.  Malachi and I went to the toddler group at the sports centre where we ended up seeing Simon's cousin's wife and her little girls which was a nice surprise.  I got to have squishy newborn cuddles and then she needed feeding so I ended up playing with Evie and Malachi on the bouncy castle.  Somehow in the last 20 years I have lost the ability to stay upright on those things!

Then it was a quick dash across town to pick up Isaac from school, home, lunch, pick Jeremiah up, cook tea and put the children to bed.  Today is my housework day so I've been trying to fight the tiredness and get some jobs done.  Isaac is also fighting tiredness and is now in a "high as a kite" mood.  School again tomorrow.
