Today was my due date for Thing 3, instead they made a rather dramatic entry into the world and are now 1 week old! I still cannot believe a whole week has gone past.
We are slowly adjusting to life with a newborn again, one who appears to be very much nocturnal. I spend any time that baby sleeps sleeping, as things can wait for a while. I am just trying to absorb as much newborn as I can, and whilst I can.
Thing 3 is doing really well. The girls are simply besotted by baby and want to help with everything. They are adjusting too, and we are trying to get things back to normal for them as much as possible. Just taking every day as it comes.
Sleep is almost non existent, with Thing 3 sleeping for around 20 minutes and then waking to be fed for 10 minutes. I know this won't last forever and just make the most of the newborn cuddles.
This past week has therefore been about finding our feet as a family of five and sleeping whenever we can. Normality will return soon enough, but for now time is going far too quick and I just want to make the most of it.
This day I love the first week
