1 week old today!

Hello everyone,

Sorry I've been rather quiet on here the last week I've been getting used to life as a mummy to 2 beautiful babies! 
As you know my little peanut made her arrival into the world on 9th June and we have been spending some quality family time together. 
James has taken to being a big brother perfectly! He absolutely loves his little sister and is so eager to help out, feed her and give her lots of cuddles. 

She is 1 week old today and had the midwife yesterday and she now weighs 7lb 7oz! She still has no name yet although we have narrowed it down to a few choices (its just so hard to commit to one lol!) Her cord also fell off (YAY!) yesterday which was a big relief I always worry im going to catch it every time I change her nappy, It also means she can enjoy a nice bath.

She is such a sleepy baby and is currently sleeping from 11pm -5/6am only waking for a feed then straight back to sleep in the night. Im totally making the most of this before the teething, growth spurts and illness's that keep that awake all night start lol.

Hubby is back to work as of tomorrow and I must admit its a little daunting and scary realising im going to have to care for not 1 but 2 children and its all a new experience for us all. Im sure it will all be fine and its going to be a learning curve for us all and a case of getting a good routine behind us but most of all just enjoying it! 


Here she is wide awake today at 1 week old! I cant believe how quick that first week has gone! Slow down time!

  3. Yes, congrats. It's a wonderful time of life, new borns and toddlers to look after. It's daunting yes, and I'm sure I made mistakes, but you'll know what to do when a situation arises. It's innate and it's true what they say, that a mother does know best.
