Hello friends! Sorry for my almost month long absence. My avid readers will know I was due a baby... I'm delighted to tell you, he's arrived! Meet Noah. He made his entrance into the world on the 18th June (right on his due date- a timely bundle) and we were so thankful for a straightforward and speedy delivery. He weighed a whopping 9lbs 5oz, which I suppose accounts for my huge bump this time round!
I have been in a state of newborn bliss. First babies are such a mystery, whereas I'm much more laid back this time round, allowing me to enjoy it all so much more. Life is once again a whirlwind of nappies, breastfeeding, and sleepless nights. But I love every second of it. He's such a blessing and I still find myself gazing at him in disbelief!
And Jack, well. He is just the most amazing big brother. He adores Noah. He's always asking for kisses and cuddles of his brand new bro. It has been amazing to watch these two interact. I'm so proud of how well Jack has taken it all in his stride. Wee buns. Most of the time.
From the moment Noah was put in my arms, I thought he looked so familiar. Like I had known him all my life. Initially we thought this was because he is so similar to a newborn Jack. Identical in some ways! But as the days have gone on, he has developed his own little look, and we all think he's very like me. I'm pleased at this, of course, since I've been told that Jack is so like his Daddy.
I gave myself a few weeks off to totally enjoy the newest little one, so my week that was has turned into the weeks that were. Here's a few snaps from the last four weeks. It's pretty heavy on the new addition, as you can imagine!
