oh, boys!

It's been a very hectic week with not a lot of time for blogging. Poor Charlie has had pneumonia - though he's feeling so much better now. Alas, his sleep is horrible at the moment, as it has been since Christmas. It's not unusual for me to be up at least once every hour - often more - throughout the night. Since he's better he's been waking up for long stretches during the night. It's so exhausting. I'm finding it difficult to be functional at work, but we're hoping things get better soon. Charlie was such a super sleeper up until Christmas.

Through all the sickness and lack of sleep, though, Charlie is just such a happy and content baby. May this continue...

Rafi had a good week, too. Of course he's been struck down with another head cold but he's mostly fine and being his funny self. He has such a funny turn of expression - just like his papa. When we're eating dinner he says to his nana, "Nana, are you going to join us?", and tells us a lot that he loves us "sooooo much". He also frustratingly declares that "Sammy doesn't listen to me!", and sweetly says to me, "no problem, mummy", when I ask him to do something (though not always!). He also enjoys trying to negotiate with us - "just 5 more minutes", or "later I can".

He's such good company.


  1. I love rafi's expressions!! Charlie is so sweet imnglad he is getting better. But most of all, I wish you all sleepful nights!!!!
    Love you all x

  2. Ugh! I hate the non sleeping phase, but I'm glad everyone is on the mend. I wish you restful nights ahead. X
