6 weeks old


Miss E is 6 weeks old today, I can't believe how quickly time has gone! She's no longer our tiny newborn baby, her first smiles have started to appear and we're getting to know her more each day. She loves being cuddled and being carried whilst we're doing things around the house, looking at trees from her pram on our daily walk, and smiling at her toys and videos for babies on YouTube (especially one with black and white butterflies!). Bath time is a particular favourite too and each evening I take her for a soak with me, it's a wonderful time to cuddle and enjoy time with her! 

Over the last few weeks we've taken her to Christmas fairs, out on shopping trips, visiting family and for many walks with the dog. We're slowly getting into a routine, her days and nights are not so mixed up anymore, she's better, I'm better and life is getting a bit more back to 'normal'. 

Her jaundice has finally cleared up after many trips to the children's hospital. She weighed 7lb 1oz at birth and lost quite a bit of weight during the first couple of weeks due to the condition but today she weighs in at 9lb 6oz which is fantastic! 

It's hard to imagine life before her now and I'm excited for all our future adventures together as a family!

  5. She's such a sweetheart. Bathtimes with baby are the best times! I'm dreading the day when we both stop fitting in!
