Little Harry is now one month old! As of last Sunday actually. I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed, and it has been full of so many special moments. The first few weeks were pretty crazy, but now we feel so much more confident and settled and are loving our new life as parents!
Harry is just adorable and we can’t believe he is ours. He’s really funny and some of the faces he pulls are just hilarious and so cute. I could just stare at him all day!
Unfortunately I don’t have time to do just that though – little Harry takes some looking after haha! It’s a big life change and very busy but I feel like I have got into the swing of things now and I feel much more confident. My husband went back to work about two weeks ago. I was a bit worried about how I would cope without him (he is amazing with Harry and a really hands-on dad) but I have to say I am getting on fine now! Some days are a bit more chaotic than others and some days it’s just fun and things feel under control!
Having a newborn is such a special experience and it really changes you. Yes, we are still the same people, but suddenly so many things don’t seem that important anymore and your number one priority becomes this tiny little person. Harry is a really good baby (I think anyway!) and we are so privileged to be his mum and dad!
He is wearing 0-3 months clothes now. He wore this size pretty much from the start as he is a big boy! He weighed 8lbs 9.5oz at birth and is now around 11lbs. He is a very hungry boy and eats every 3 hours, almost like clockwork! He does eat less at night thankfully, more like every 4 hours. The odd time he will sleep for about six hours during the night so hopefully he is heading in the right direction sleep wise!
As for me, I am feeling fine and less sleep deprived than I expected! We have been spending lots of time with family and friends and I have been really enjoying this stage of life! I just know the time is going to fly in so I am really trying to make the most of every day.
We are still waiting on our first smile (that isn’t just wind). This week he has really found his arms and legs and loves kicking and punching and thrashing about! He loves being bathed and enjoys his bouncy chair and cot mobile. His playmat is growing on him! He loves looking around and is really alert and inquisitive. His favourite thing of course is to be held close and given lots of cuddles. We are doing lots of that obviously!
So happy and so thankful to have him here!
