Week 10 has been MASSIVE… listing, family fun, MASSIVE…
On Sunday Dave, Isaac and I participated in our first fun run for the year (no. 38 on the list), the Monash Children’s Hospital walk at Jells Park and for some unknown reason I decided we should sign up for the 10km… which is much further than I have walked for over a year and a bit… I think I when we were signing up, I had had grand plans of a glorious Parkrun return that would have been in full swing weeks before and that if we were going to do a fun run we should push ourselves… so 10km it had to be. We made it, just… I might have been a bit slow for the rest of the week, but we made it… and Isaac was pretty proud of himself. It was also nice to give back to the hospital that has given us so much.
We also finished the week with more things being crossed of the list, we are currently down at Inverloch for the long weekend with the Salvo Big Band for the Inverloch Jazz Festival and being in Inverloch is no. 9 on the list and I touched the ocean (no. 95) when we took Isaac down to the beach for the first time. In fact I even went for a swim. I am not sure Isaac loved it, but he didn’t hate it… which I think for a babies first trip to the beach is a win. It also crossed no. 19 of Isaac’s List.
Between our listing expeditions on the weekends we spent a lot of time back the hospital for follow up appointments, physios, respitatory teams, and neonatologists. We also went back to the Maternal Child Health Nurse. We also had lunch with Grandma Meg which is also fun.
Oh and last week we reached the magic time in parenthood when Isaac started sleeping through the night (no. 15 on his list)… but in fear of jinxing it I kept it to this week to tell you all… it’s magic.
