Everly was so excited to become a big sister, and although she loves her little brother, the transition has been difficult for her. She’s fiery and sassy by nature, so she lets her feelings be known most often through screams and tears 😫 She’s needing lots of extra love and attention as she settles into life with a baby taking up so much of my time, so we’ve been having more cuddles and playtime together. My sweet little firecracker 🎆
The last 8 weeks with this little one have been really hard and all consuming, but I think we’re finally making it through to the other side. He’s yet to sleep longer than 2 hours at a time, and he suffers with reflux so we’ve been trying to find the right medication to ease his pain, and I’ve been dealing with the emotional aftermath of another traumatic birth (hoping our meeting with the VP of the maternity ward will provide some answers and closure) But things are looking a lot brighter and I am so in love with this little boy 💕
There were things I’d forgotten about newborns... how tiny and vulnerable they are (even the chunky 9lb babies still look so small), what noisy little sleepers they are with the snuffles and snorts, the gentle mews throughout the night, and how they have the most unimaginably soft skin. It is a treasure to get to experience it all over again 💕
Just a few short days ago I was carrying him inside me. This was one of the last bump photos taken, after the realisation I had barely documented this pregnancy. And now here he is earthside. Thank you so much for all the kind words and well wishes, it fills my heart 💕
Our darling new addition to the family arrived on Saturday June 9th at 7.33pm weighing 9lbs 5oz. It was another intense and quick labor with no time for any pain relief, but I got through it with the support of Matt. We’re all smitten with him and he’s getting lots of love from his adoring siblings ☺️ Welcome to the family little one 💕
Feeling like a beached whale at 39 weeks. Baby is measuring 3 weeks ahead, he was already an estimated 8lbs at my appointment last week 😳 Let’s hope they’re wrong, eh? 🙈 It still feels surreal that we’ll be meeting our son soon. Can’t wait to see that little face!
