This morning I decided to sit down and organise through my baby’s newborn clothes, she’s not been in them for about a week now but they sat in a bag waiting to be sorted and a part of me doesn’t want to get rid of them, I know I probably have to or should do as they are taking up space but I am almost scared to get rid of them or donate them.
Robin, my youngest was born at 38 weeks exactly and weighing 5lbs 8oz, she’s smaller than my other two who while arrived into the world at 38 weeks as well, weighed 8lbs each, give or take a few ounces between them. I didn’t experience this sort of feeling with them, I kept their going home outfits and that was it, but with Robin I don’t want to get rid of anything. I do wonder if perhaps it’s just because she’s my third, there is a 4 year gap between my oldest daughter and her, or because she was born so tiny, she still isn’t long (but having two short parents probably doesn’t help that hah) i am sure I’ll be able to donate her newborn clothes at some point, but for now I think I need to invest in some of those vacuum pack bags!
All back to normal on Monday 🙂
Busy day today!
The health visitor visited today to check Robin over and weigh her, she is a wonderful 8lbs 11oz now after being born at 5lbs 8, she wasn’t to early only two weeks early but is my smallest of the three, while she’s gaining weight she’s still on the small side and will need to be measured again in a few months to make sure she’s growing properly.
Also today was mine and hers 6 week check up with the GP, we are both fine but Robin has a Umbilical hernia – I did a quick google when I got home to learn that it’s common in premature babies and likely to go away on its own, worst case is surgery but I don’t expect it to come to that but once again I am meant to go back and have it checked in a few months.
After the little adventure we made some Just Roll Cinnamon rolls (YUM) which I plan to enjoy later and settled down for the weekend!
Thank goodness it’s Friday!
We finally got out, I had to to get Robin registered at my doctors, I have been putting it off for about two weeks (or forgetting to take the forms with me more like!!) Blame it on the baby brain I guess. But it turns out you need a birth certificate and mine has been sent off with the child benefit forms which should’ve been in the post a few weeks ago but once again they didn’t get there until yesterday so I have to wait again, my own fault I know!
But still we got a walk out of it and it inspired me to cook burgers for dinner as well.. I bought buns!!
On the slimming world note I very much enjoyed being back there, while I don’t plan to sign up until next week I am glad I went and everyone met Robin.
Half term is almost over thank goodness!
…. I don’t know how much more Dinotrux I can take!!
Today was planned to have been a ‘let’s go for a walk’ day but once again half term in England ends up being a soggy raining one, stuck inside again with two of the children getting creative with my washing pegs.
The smallest of the three doesn’t require much entertainment (being 6 weeks old) so in between washing, breaking up fights and giving my newborn the care she needs its been a rather boring and uneventful day.
This evening I’m planning to attend my local Slimming World group, I stopped going when I was around 34 weeks pregnant mainly because my hips and back didn’t enjoy the walk but I am returning to say hello and then rejoin next week. I actually can’t wait to get back properly but I decided to wait until 6 weeks after birth to allow full recovery I look forward to a few hours out of the house and talk to adults (besides husband) again.. Here’s to next week.
Bring it on 🙂
While I sit here with my newborn in my arms and my two other children hypnotically watching Dinotrux on Netflix I decided to take time for myself and start a little blog.
Do housework I hear you shout, already done… since having baby three I have developed a slight obsession with keeping a tidy home, It saves time to deal with the more important things in life.. like cuddles and cups of tea.
So what is there to say.. not a lot for today if I’m honest, this week is the dreaded half term week, and its raining what a surprise. On the plus I do not need to turf out in the wet during the school runs.
Ah the life of a stay at home Mummy Cat.
