Technically she is 5 and a bit weeks now, but I have a newborn and finding the time for her baby recap has been hard but we’ve managed it. What a whirlwind it has been in her first month and already she has done so much since she was born! As it has been the summer break she has been here, there and everywhere, including her first holiday, so here’s a recap of her first few weeks of life:
We took our annual trip to Butlins Bognor Regis which was fun and exciting, and thankfully not too wet! Having a newborn on holiday was a bit of a challenge but she handled it like a pro and we were lucky that she slept between 4-5 hours per night so didn’t upset the neighbours too much.
We also tested out the baby sling which has gone down a treat (I will be doing a post on this later!). she loves to snuggle in there and sometimes I pop her in around the house so I can get stuff done! She is definitely the cutest accessory I have ever worn!
In an effort to regain some fitness we have been putting the running buggy to the test and hitting the track. She is loving being out in the sunshine and being pushed around like a princess, mummy, on the other hand, is sweating like a pig! It is also a great way to keep her chilled, relaxed and asleep whenever she’s having a grumbly day!
Most importantly we have been spending our summer holidays bonding as a family and building this budding relationship. Big brother has doted on her since the moment she was born (trying to shove wotsits in her face and “share” his lunch), he loves kisses and cuddles and playing with his little sis. Since it won’t last forever (probably until puberty kicks in or she’s old enough to annoy him) we are making every moment count!
She’s been getting involved in the blogging process, and by getting involved I mean getting in the way! Notice this is a short recap, that’s because it’s taken me about 3 days because she’s a little attention seeker. We have been trying to find a routine as I go back to work and try to keep up with blogging too which has meant several late night cuddle/writing sessions!
One of the more anxious parts about bringing her home was how The Toolbox Kitties would react to her but as it turns out they love her too. Although happily they keep a safe distance so there hasn’t been any cot raids or smothering cuddles!
As you can see the first month has been quite tiring but we are lucky enough that this little lady loves her sleep and we have been getting between 5-9 hours per night (just like her big bro) which means it’s going quite well for everyone!
