Isablog #21 – Going Through Another Leap & Happy New Year

I have no idea what leap six is, but apparently Isabelle is currently going through it.

Rachel really likes to use this thing called The Wonders Weeks. It’s not something I’ve really looked at too much, and it does cost you £1.99, but thus far it has been a very valuable tool in predicting when Isabelle will be going through leaps. And as such, a lot of her normal patterns, especially the night ones, will be disrupted.

Our Month In Photos: December

I’ll be honest, this is actually a backdated post. I initially started this “Our Month in Photo” thing for January, but seeing as we bought the camera before Christmas, and used it quite a lot around then, I thought I’d do this for December too!

That headline is a ridiculous one. The idea of someone actually going out and purchasing a fake penis for…

2017: A Year In Review

So that’s 2017 inches away from being in the rear view mirror, and since I seemingly like to write nonsense for very little reason other than the fun of writing, I thought I’d talk a little bit about 2017. If you’re not very excited about that prospect, then here are some cute pictures of cats if you feel that more up your street. Also, if you’re thinking about taking up a New Year’s Resolution, then I happen to have a post about it.

Our First Christmas with a Baby

Well, after a pretty long day, and a much longer Christmas Eve, we’re done and dusted with Isabelle’s first Christmas.

Overall, it was probably as good as I could’ve hoped it would go. But before I carry on, I will start all of this off by saying I don’t generally like Christmas all that much. I’m not some mean spirited Grinch type person, but a lot of my depression stems from something that happened very near to Christmas nine years ago.
