So it’s been 4 weeks now since I had Jack. It’s a very odd feeling because it’s hard to believe it’s been 4 weeks because it only feels like yesterday I was in labour but then it feels like he has always been a part of us. He has fitted into the family perfectly and we wouldn’t change him for the world.
All my babies so far have been really similar so we expected Jack to be the same but he is the opposite so far. My other 3 all fed every 4 hours and slept between each feed. It was literally feed, change, sleep and repeat. I obviously pushed my luck by having a 4th baby because Jack with go either 2, 3 or 4 hours between feeds depending how he feels and he sleeps all day long (apart from feeding and changing) and then will be awake almost all night. And if that isn’t exhausting enough, I’ve also had Harry up most nights because he’s poorly, I’ve been poorly and my OH works nights! it’s been one massive shock to the system.
Despite all of that I still absolutely adore him and still can’t believe he’s mine. I feel incredibly lucky to have 4 healthy (apart from one having asthma) beautiful children. And all children (maybe not so much the teens at the minute) love each other
He’s only been here 4 short weeks but already he makes us laugh a lot. He trumps so much that people don’t believe how much until they actually witness it. All night (and day) we here little but loud trumps, it’s so cute! He loves his food and is gaining weight beautifully. He was born 5lb 10 then he was 6lb 12 then 7lb 8 so didn’t lose any 🙂
He loves bath time. Not the getting ready or drying after a bath but the actual in the bath, yes. He has had a bath in the living room and he’s had a few baths with Harry, which he has loved! He was in the baby bath, in the bath but still next to him.
He’s now at that in between stage of clothing because up to now he’s been in tiny baby and newborn but both are getting a little small for him now but 0-3 months drowns him still.
It’s been a bit of a whirlwind and a new baby haze but we have loved the journey. I’m looking forward to feeling more ‘normal’ though and enjoying life even more 🙂
