If you were following Coffee and Cat Hair on Bloglovin I'm afraid you'll have to re-follow me as The Small Things as unfortunately it's not just a simple case of changing a blog name. Very annoying.
Thankfully it doesn't affect the blogs I follow otherwise I'd be lost!

Is it that time again? It doesn't feel like a month has past since the last update!
Ho well. Another month gone so here we go. The biggest change (at least for me and Dan) is that over the past couple of weeks she's started sleeping through the night. I don't trust it though. It just feels a little too good to be true so we're making the most of it while we can!
She's still up into everything. Or at least, she makes you help her be up into everything. While she's conquered the head holding up thing, she still gets frustrated at not being able to do the sitting up thing, the standing up thing, or the be high up and see everything herself thing. So she shouts. A lot. Until someone picks her up and then it's like she's watching a tennis match. Her head will whip from side to side so fast I'm sure she can't actually see anything, but she's got to see EVERYTHING. ALL THE TIME. It's as if she's afraid that if she takes her eye off the world for one second, she'll miss something amazing.
She's started taking regular naps during the day too which is making my life a whole lot easier! They give me a chance to get things done like oooh, brushing my hair and putting on deodorant. I may not get much done each day still, but at least I don't smell. They don't last very long though, half an hour tops so anything I want to get done has to be quick.
She's still not laughing yet. She smiles a huge smile and looks as though she's about to giggle at any second, but nothing actually comes out. She'll get there in her own time. I'm just impatient because it feels so great each time she smiles at me. Hearing her giggle will be like crack.
And that's it for now. Here's where I blink and find myself writing update number five..

This week I finally had a burst of productivity and got some things done.
I moved back into the sewing room after deciding my 'nook' in the bedroom was too small. I washed and ironed the fabric that finally arrived, made two test dresses and then decided that as my sewing machine wasn't up to scratch, I'd go and buy myself an overlocker, Y'know. As you do.
This was the one I plumped for in the end.
Isn't she a beaut? I'm getting quite excited about this project now as I've got to admit, I've been climbing the walls a little lately. Please don't get me wrong, I know how lucky I am and I love that I get to watch Pip grow a bit more each day, but for my own sanity I do need something else to focus on other dirty nappies and Mr Tumble.
That said, I will always put my sewing machine down for Gigglebiz. It makes the nappy changing more fun.
