The past two months has consisted of so much nappy changing, feeding & visiting people that I’ve not had time to sit and blog but I am so happy to announce that we welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world on Tuesday 10th July 2018. He was born at 10.26am weighing 6lb 7oz’s.
We named him Lorenzo Joe Jack Grice.
We are completely and utterly in love. He has bought so much love and joy into our lives and we couldn’t imagine life without him. He is just what I needed in my life but more than I ever dreamed of.
Everyone says time flies when you have a baby and they are so right. The overwhelming emotions of not wanting them to grow any older but also being in complete awe at how they grow and become more aware as the weeks go by. It’s such an amazing feeling. It feels like I blinked and now here we are, with a 2 month old thriving baby boy.
He’s really strong. I find it hard to wind him sometimes because he sits right up and quickly turns his head round to look at me. At 9 days old he rolled from his front to back. He’s so alert and loves to be held upright so he can explore the world through his big blue eyes. Patterns and lights are his favourite. He’s just gone into 0-3 month clothing but still fits into his 1 month clothing too, so he’s still our little dinks. We also call him our smiler, he’s so happy and content and blesses me with smiles every morning and throughout the day. He’s well and truly found his hands recently, they’re forever in his mouth and he’s also trying to speak to us by making the sweetest cooing noises. As for sleep; I expect him to wake every 3 hours and anything more is a bonus. On the rare occasion he’ll sleep for 5-6 hours, although it’s slowly becoming more frequent.
I’m in the middle of writing a blog about my labour and birth story, and I’m hoping I can get back into a more regular routine with my blogging. I have even more to blog about now! Xo
