Well our little guy is nearly 3 weeks old and the time is flying by. And it’s funny how many things I forgot that little teeny tiny babies do. Like big pooplosions that require a change of outfit and bedding. Yesterday I had to wash the bassinet mattress too.
big stretches and a little smelly going off at the same time, little vomits on your shoulder that drop onto the floor as you walk off and you then discover later when you walk back, how you become an expert at doing everything one handed….I can even kick the dishwasher closed using my foot after packing it one handed. The arms up above the head and the ability to get those arms out of being swaddled. And just when you think you’ve gotten them off to sleep and you think phew, we did it and you walk off and start to do something and you hear the crying. Yep that. Oh and going back to having a nappy bag that needs to be fully stocked even if you are just ducking up to the shops for a quick trip. Yep that too.
It really is funny the things I’ve forgotten but for all of the logistical stuff that is required when you have a new baby there is just that absolute love that you have for the newest member of the family. Every time we have a baby it feels like they have just always been here with us. We fall into our regular routine and we can’t remember a time when our latest addition wasn’t with us. That’s probably why we are always growing our family. We love bringing a new baby into our family, everyone gets along with everyone (99% of the time) and we get though the newborn days because we know it gets easier.
