Jack is one month old

I confess that this last month had absolutely flown and we are still just so enchanted with our beautiful baby boy. I haven't blogged much because I don't want to bore you all with photos of my baby but I am sure you will understand that everything else has really taken a back seat at the moment and I have little else to share. One day I will hopefully have a little balance back here and not be totally baby focussed :-)

Jack has settled in beautifully, he pretty much straight away got into a 3 hour routine, with slightly longer sleeps at night. Usually I get up to him once and sometimes twice. By getting up I mean I feed him at about 10.30pm then I head to bed. Generally he wakes up about 3am and then again at 6.30am, I can cope with this and I confess on weekends I go back to bed after the 6.30 feed. So I am not as tired as I thought I may be. I am praying that it only gets better and not worse.

Jack feeds well, has put on weight and doing all the normal things, he does seem to be slightly jaundiced still but we are just keeping an eye on it and the midwife thinks he may have a clicky hip, apparently this is common and nothing to be overly concerned about. The Dr will check it again at the 6 week check up.

If you follow me on Instagram or are friends on Facebook (if not you can follow me here or find me on FB here) then you probably would have seen most of these photos but just in case here is a little look at the last month.

March is shaping up to be a busy month for us with trips away at least 3 of the weekends at this stage. It will be interesting to see how Jack (and mummy) cope with all of the travelling :-)
