Three Weeks…

02 Oct

So…I’ve been away from my blog for three weeks…

Three weeks yesterday I was being induced…

Three weeks today our little boy was born…

…three weeks…

It feels like a lifetime ago.


He is amazing.

His name is George (after George Harrison) and he likes boobs, cuddles, The Beatles (particularly Mean Mr. Mustard), Simon and Garfunkel, Mardy Bumย by The Arctic Monkeys,ย and Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison. He doesย not like being put down, being in a dirty nappy, having his nappy changed, being naked, and getting dressed.

I am sure it’s been said and said again by mothers and fathers all over the world, but I can’t remember what life was like before him. I spend most of my day (and night) cuddling him and feeding him, and it’s a rare treat to have my arms to myself long enough to type…but…despite the fact that he’s happily snoozing away right now, I’m rushing to finish writing this so I can pick him up and let him spend the rest of his nap on my chest.

He is a beautiful boy.

I never quite got my head around the fact that he was growing inside me, and now I’m struggling to believe that he’s mine (well, ours) and that I’m his mother. I can’t believe that I have a baby, even though he’s right here beside me as I type. I can’t believe that Luke and I have created this perfect addition to our family. I feel so lucky. I feel so blessed.
