Vega – 4 week update

vega 4 wks old

Vega was four weeks old yesterday…. I’m sat here nursing him this morning, and I can’t imagine he’s been here four weeks already, but equally it feels like he’s always been here.

We’ve settled into our new normal now, routines are getting back on track, we’ve figuring our way around this whole newborn thing again quite well. He still likes to nurse most of the day {especially the moment before I have to leave the house to get anywhere on time!}, he’s a pretty good sleeper, most nights he’ll feed around midnight, then 2 and 4, though sometimes we manage to skip the 2am feed! He’s usually only up for ten/fifteen minutes at those feeds before he’s snoring again and we’re usually up for the day around seven/half past seven. This time around, I’m enjoying the peace of those night-time feeds. There’s no distractions, no one else who needs me, no where I should be, just the two of us. I know it won’t last forever, so I’m savouring every single second. While I’m tired, I’m getting six or seven hours {broken up} every night, I’m coping pretty well this time around – it was one thing I was worried about, lack of sleep and I don’t go well together!

I’m loving having a newborn around again, having a little squidge who wants to snuggle and sleep on me. His big sisters are still besotted with him and he gets so many cuddles and kisses. He’s a happy little fella and it’s amazing to see him get a little more alert and interested every day.

I’m going to start posting these updates monthly from now on, these weekly updates are making time pass far too quickly!!

    He is so gorgeous. Are you coping ok with the lack of sleep? Is it easier after doing it all a few times?

      I’m actually doing ok! I was really worried how I’d cope, as with the three girls there is no chance of a nap! But he’s only up 2/3 times for ten mins, so I’m getting lots of sleep albeit broken up. I’m way more chilled out this time which is prob helping!

    He is gorgeous. I am pleased to hear that you are getting into a routine and that you are getting some sleep, even though it is broken sleep. I don’t do very well on little sleep either-it’s one thing I can’t handle. Looking forward to the next update x

    Oh Wow, he is just adorable. I can not cope on little sleep, it makes for one groucy mama here!

    Oh my life, he is so lush! And four weeks, already! He has a very knowing look for a one-month-old!

    Did you hear that noise? It was the sound of my ovaries bursting! He is SO beautiful! I am in a slight state of mourning at the moment as my baby is 3 and there will be no more for me this time!

  11. January 26, 2015 / 17:13

    He is adorable. You are doing very well, I turn into a bad tempered beast without lots of sleep x

  12. January 26, 2015 / 17:22

    Ah, how gorgeous is he – congratulations. Time passes so quickly, he’ll be twice the size before you know it.

    Vega is absolutely gorgeous – as much as I don’t miss the sleepless night, I agree about the peace and quiet that comes with a 4am feed, such special time just you and baby x

  14. January 26, 2015 / 19:26

    Oh he is so gorgeous! I can’t wait to have a newborn in the house again but am not looking forward to the broken sleep although it sounds like Vega is doing really well.

  15. January 26, 2015 / 20:16
