So I totally missed my intended 1 and 2 month update posts, which just shows how much of a life changer having a baby has been. I’ve barely had chance to get to my desk and when I do I need to use the time to do paid work rather than update my blog. I’m now laughing at the dream world I lived in while pregnant thinking that I would work when he napped – WHAT NAPS????! When will he nap?! We are lucky at present as Casper is sleeping pretty well at night but doesn’t really nap well during the day which leaves very little time to get things done.
Never has our house had so much stuff before. It’s hard to believe that babies need quite as much paraphernalia as they seem to. I’m sure we’ve gone massively over the top but so far most things we’ve bought have been used. The play mat may have been a little bit of an early purchase as he seems to get overwhelmed quickly but other than that, most of the things we’ve bought have already been well used. These are the things I’ve found to be the most useful
So no more pregnancy posts as our beautiful baby boy has finally arrived. It feels unbelievably strange to actually have him here beside me instead of inside me but also fantastic. The last week has been an absolutely roller coaster of emotions and hormones, I can scarcely believe he’s now just over a week old. How has it been that long since he made his way, yowling very loudly, into the world?
