|Our OTW Tula, isn't it gorgeous??|
ANYWAY, Harper will not sleep when we are out normally, she will get tired and whinge because she won't sleep but she won't sleep no matter how tired she is - at least not in the pram and I think has only done it once since she was a newborn and slept all the time anyway. Well, the babywearing has changed that, and she will get tired (and a little grabby with her tiny knife fingernails) and then she will put her head on my chest and fall asleep, leaving me to do my food shopping in peace without worrying whether people are getting irritated at a baby crying - which I know I shouldn't worry about, but I do - we quite often get comments saying how happy she is and how smiley she is, and she is happy, she is happy that she gets to look about when we're walking, she's happy that she gets to grab me in the face as we're walking, she's happy that she's close to me or her Daddy! What baby wouldn't be? We do of course get less polite comments, one tat stuck out to me was 'she'll never learn to walk if you're carrying her!' - ONE: She is NINE MONTHS OLD we aren't quite aiming for that yet and TWO: How would she be learning to walk if she was in a pram? But blah to the naysayers, we have happier baby and a happier mummy too because it makes trips out much less stressful.

Speaking of me! I started Slimming World on the 26th November, so it's now been almost 6 weeks - and I have lost 14 and a half pounds! I have a long way to go until target, but it's feeling much more reachable now than when I started! I guess my competitive streak helps in that I want to be getting slimmer of the week and slimmer of the month (I have gotten slimmer of the week twice, and my first month I got slimmer of the month, result!).
Anyway, I am going to leave this here until the next time - hopefully before Harper's first birthday... I can't believe how soon that's going to come up! We are moving her to a bigger bedroom and decorating it for her so she can fit all her Christmas presents in it - honestly I have never seen (or heard) so many toys!
