Our newly made family of four is adjusting well to having a newborn in the house again. Sleep is still a rare and valuable commodity, we’re attempting to grab a few Zzzz’s whenever we get the chance. We’ve seemed to have found a good routine now balancing the needs of all our family members. We’ve all been to Playgroup twice now and Anabelle’s loving her weekly gymnastics class. We’ve even ventured out to the shops on a few occasions and both children have been amazing!
As expected we’ve had the camera on constant standby and have captured some really great memories! We’re amazed at how much Anabelle has taken to Levi, she’s always ready with a kiss and a hug and asks if she can “have a hold” and for a two-year old is surprisingly gentle. She regularly walks around the house calling for “E-bi” (she has trouble with the L and the V – so cute! :)) and giggles with delight anytime she gets to touch him and he reacts with a little squeak or by moving his arms or legs.
As with Anabelle, I can’t remember life now without two children. It’s a beautiful place to be and I’m so grateful for the time I’ve got off work – still another three weeks to go!
Levi had his first real bath yesterday and seemed to love the water. He’s so different to his big sister, her first bath was a scream-fest she didn’t appreciate it at all!
We had a visit from the MAC nurse last Friday to check that everything was going well post hospital. Levi is an eating machine!! In the five days since he’s been home he’s back to his birth weight and grown 3.5cm – he’s doing so well.
Thanks again for all your love and kind wishes, we really do appreciate them and we look forward to seeing you soon!
