Two Weeks...

In eight hours my precious little one will be two weeks old. Where has that time gone?? Right now the little miss is sleeping beside me on my bed whilst I catch up on the happenings online and her big brother plays his playstation next to me. She is in her first ever dress today, and looks ever so peaceful and cute...

(taken with the webcam... so yes a little dodgy, but still ever so cute)


I've written about things that you forget about when you a re pregnant... well here are the things, both the good and the bad that you forgot about having a newborn around. I thought I might get them down before my little one *gasp* is no longer a newborn.

1. If you don't know how to swim then you will soon learn after waking up in pools of milk in the morning...

2. Newborns should come with one of those signs 'slippery when wet'. They are VERY slippery if you attempt to have a shower with them.

3. The feel of spewed up milk running between your (.)(.)'s becomes normal, and if it doesn't happen at least twice a day you think something is wrong.

4. What was that noise... be prepared to jump out of bed like a mad woman when you hear the slightest noise... (even if it was just the cat outside)

5. Do not, under any circumstances look, think or touch your baby (or think happy, soppy thoughts about babies) if they haven't feed for a few hours, unless you find looking like you have just entered a wet t-shirt competition glamorous...

6. In relation to above, do not wear light coloured cotton tops when in public...

7. Your baby does not want you, or any one else in your household to eat tea. Breakfast and Lunch are ok, but tea is another story.

8. The sound of a burp can be the highlight of your day.

9. Even if you do manage to get some sleep over night, be prepared to feel the need to fall asleep all day, and come baby's sleep time be prepared to be wide awake.

10. Your house will get messy, REALLY messy. Your other children may eat tinned spaghetti fr tea two nights in a row.... But who cares, I know I don't :)

Brought back some very fond memories! Thanks! I found, when I really couldn't fall asleep when I had a window, that opening my book would be a great sedative. As soon as I wasn't 'trying to sleep', the sleep would just come. Enjoy!
