Your world in 4 weeks

Baby boo you are 4 weeks old tomorrow and it feels like you have always been a part of our family.  We love you so much, words just can not explain.

You have had a busy 4 weeks, here is a snapshot:

You have spent a fair bit of time in a milk coma as we like to call it!  This is a common scene every morning.  We are co sleeping at the moment and we all love it, but we will be transferring you to your crib very soon.

I took you to get you weighed a few days ago and you were 9lb 10oz.  I was so proud and the HV was very impressed!  You didn't cry once, even when you were placed in the nudey on those cold scales.

You are 'official' now as we took you to get registered.  The registrar was lovely and adored the name we chose for you.  We hope you love it too, it really suits you.

You attended your big sisters Forest School for Harvest Festival.  She was so proud, showing you off to her teachers and friends.  We dressed you in your bear pram suit which everyone seemed to adore!  Despite all the singing and clapping and windy weather you slept the whole morning.  We then went to meet Grams and Papa for lunch, where they enjoyed lots of cuddles!

You attended your first party.  One of Belle's friends was having an enchanted fairy and princess party.  We gave her the choice of having you there or you staying with Grams and Papa but she wanted you there :)  Her friends all enjoyed taking it in turns rocking your carseat.  Again, you slept, pretty much the whole time.

Your first bath time was a bit of a love hate relationship.  You liked it at first.  Then cried a bit.  Then enjoyed water being poured over your head and then decided you didn't like it again.

You and your big sister on mummy and daddy's bed.  This was taken on a lazy weekend.  It was so nice daddy taking a few weeks off work so we could all just relax and enjoy being a family of 4.  I find it so hard to put into words how amazing Belle has been and how much she loves you.  She will put nappies out for you and will jump to your side at the slightest moan or cry.  She always wants to stroke your head and give you kisses.  It is so sweet.  When the little whirlwind comes home from preschool, upon hearing her voice your head darts around looking for her.  I am sure she will get the privilege of your first smile!

Baby Boo you are such a content little boy, at just 4 weeks old.  You are so alert and have been since day one, you open your eyes so wide, taking in all the surroundings.  You remind me of your sister so much, yet you are also so different in so many ways.  

Now in the risk of glorifying motherhood too much (all you mum's out there know those first few months aren't easy but we also wouldn't change them) I must also say you are a little wind bag...

Burping baby boo...a must!
