So you are 1 month old today and we are staying at Nanny’s house for one more week. We’ve been here 2 weeks already and your Daddy took the opportunity to fit an entire new fireplace . It’s not quite ready yet (and we definitely need it working in all this able) so we’re staying an extra week.
I don’t mind one bit. I have no clue what the heck I’m doing!
You’re gorgeous and tiny but perfect and I’m so exhausted but I don’t make it easier on myself as I’m watching you most of the night. Some people say you’re so tiny they’re nervous about holding you. I don’t mind. More cuddles for me. Plus they’re just being dramatic. 6 lb is small but you fit perfectly in my arms. Apparently the baby born down the road was about 8lbs when and is putting on weight at lightning speed and now almost double his birth weight.
I’m pretty sure I haven’t gotten out of my pjs for a whole month now. I need to start getting out and about and I REALLY miss driving, but after the c section I can’t for at least a couple more weeks. Boo! I can’t wait to be signed off by the GP. I looked like a zombie shuffling about the first week post op but its a lot better now.
I’ve started watching a lot of telly too. I’ve really become addicted to the new series of Shameless and watch it pretty much every night. We used to watch it being filmed from our office block before the company relocated to a nicer location. Its so funny but probably not suitable viewing for you just yet. You’re wide awake at that time of night, after sleeping most of the day, and ready to party the night away. I hope you’re not going to keep this night owl thing up!
I’ve found this massive mum community online on Twitter and lots of people that have babies the exact same age as you. It’s brilliant! They’re online all night long too and it’s like a virtual support network. It’s definitely helped me freak out a lot less than I would otherwise. Who knew there are millions of new mums awake up and down the country most of the night, trying to get their babies to sleep. I never knew how exhausting sleep deprivation could be. It is absolutely shattering! I’ve heard most babies sleep through at 6 weeks though, which means I only have another couple weeks or so to go. Hurrah!
We’ll be home by then too. Eek! I’m just not sure how I’ll cope all by myself when your Daddy goes to work all day. How will I look after a baby at the same time as cooking and cleaning? It’ll work somehow. Right?
I’m hoping I’ll be an expert by next month.
So until next time baby. Mwah!
