Well, hello there!

family portrait

Hope you all had a lovely holiday period!

I have emerged from the other end of a month of baby cuddles and hanging out in joggy bottoms, Dave is going back to work today, so this seems as good a time as any to tentatively return to the internet. It’s not been a hugely eventful month, we’ve pretty much been focused on keeping Milo and ourselves alive ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s actually been really nice, he is a pretty contented baby and sleeps lots – at least during the day! – and usually cries only for a reason, so the sleep deprivation wasn’t quite as bad as expected. The one thing I did find very difficult was the breastfeeding. It still is actually, but I can see light at the end of the tunnel now, so hopefully that thing about how they’ll have established a schedule by week 6 is true!

Anyway, here are some assorted pictures of the little monkey:

half a day old
In hospital, half a day old. This makes me think of a Ron Mueck sculpture, like I am double size, or he is half size. But I suppose he really was that small!

Milo ball
A little ball, five days old.

6 days old
Like father, like son. Six days.

Christmas Eve
Looking a bit more awake, Christmas Eve, one week and six days old.

    What gorgeous pictures, thanks for sharing. I do love those deep-thought faces that tiny babies make, like in the last picture. Also, I’m very impressed at how fully dressed and ordinary you look half a day after giving birth. Good luck with the breastfeeding, it usually does get better! (I only had a hard time with my third, but GOODNESS the pain!). All the best to you, lovely family.

    What lovely photographs. I don’t think anything really prepares you for the amount of time breastfeeding takes in the beginning. But definitely worth it in the end and it gets easier, the more you do it.
