I don't know where my little newborn baby has gone! The time has flown by in a blur and tomorrow C will be 8 weeks old. I was fortunate enough to be able to travel 5 hours up the country for some time at my Nana's house arriving home last Sunday which is one of the reasons I've been so quiet. C and I had a fabulous time and just being able to have a break away and a helping hand was amazing! I came away feeling healthier (given I had a nutritious breakfast, lunch and dinner prepared for me and not living on muesli bars and quick fix food it's hardly surprising!) and the break gave my arms a chance to relieve themselves and I'm no longer living in pain, so I'm guessing it may have just been RSI after all (thank goodness!). I must admit though that it's been a bit if a shock to the system to come home and have to manage all on my own again while the HG is at work! I was starting to get used to the extra pair of hands after 7 days away! 

Not much else to report, the days and weeks are flying by and in no time at all my maternity leave will be up and I'll be back at work which I am not looking forward to at all, but I know it's necessary so I'm trying not to dwell on it too much. C now weighs 10lb2oz so is getting chubbier as you can see from the photos above. Starting to get some gummy smiles and coos now and he is so much more alert, can't quite believe how quickly he's growing up!


  1. Happy 8 weeks little guy! So glad you got to have that break with your Nana hon, love the latest photo! xxx

  2. Haidee, I can't believe how big he is. Gosh time flies. Good luck with the return to work. If you have an concerns of questions about childcare feel free to email me.

  3. Yay to 8 weeks! Gorgeous photos. Glad to read your pain is going away.

  4. Wow, 8 weeks! I love that middle picture with the blanket- he looks so happy, content and warm.

    Glad you had a nice time away and it gave you a bit of a break.

    Boohoo to work - i can't imagine what it feels like having to think about that again. Put it at the back of your mind for now and enjoy the time you have with your little man xx
