Ahhhh, peace and quiet at last. So where was I?
Anna is wonderful. Here are the edited highlights of her first five weeks:
Ate and slept for about two weeks. We smugly thought we were in for an easy ride. So were hit quite hard by the fortnight that followed: crying, eating, crying, sleeping, crying, eating, crying, eating etc. After being advised by everyone she came into contact with that she had reflux/colic/wind/tummy pain etc (she didn’t seem to have any of them), I had her checked out. Diagnosis: crying baby.
And then it stopped. Just like that. So now we can enjoy the little smiles, the half laughs, the eye contact and the communicative gurgles. And of course, the peace and quiet.
Claire Gingerpixel took some photos of her recently – I can’t wait to see them, will post one or two when I get them.
Huge congrats to DD on the birth of Hazel Anne – a wonderful end to a very difficult journey.
