There is something about having a newborn in the house.
It almost feels like the world stops spinning.
Places to go, people to see, things to do, emails to reply to - None of it seems important, and none of it gets done.
Well, that's me anyway right now.
It is Day 11 and I am still as blissed out as I was on the day Baby Abi was born.
In terms of Amelia and Oscar, housework and preschool runs, it's been business as usual but the rest of the day (and often night) is spent drifting around the house, feeding and soaking up Abi's newborn goodness.
It's taken three babies to realise just how quickly this delicious stage passes. I feel like I was so uptight when Amelia & Oscar were babies that I blinked and they were 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and suddenly, it's all WHO IS THIS TODDLER AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH MAH BABY?
I'd be lying if I said it's all been sunshine and lollipops. Oh boy, I'd be the biggest fucking liar out and you know it! Most days, I am ready to bang Amelia & Oscar's heads together by 10am (If I hear "MUUUUUM!" one more time, I may just scream), staying home pleases me because I am not ready to brave most places in public with 3 on my own and the broken sleep isn't pretty. I am however, adamant to enjoy this time and enjoy it I have, even in the middle of the night when I'm soaked in breastmilk and hormonal sweats with an unsettled baby and a overwhelming desire to punch an ever peacefully sleeping next to me MC in the face!
And there's so much I want to tell you - I want to tell you about Abi and her birth and how the babes are with her and how life is with three but for now, my online time is mainly restricted to pinning like a crazy woman to stay awake during the 3am and 5am feeds!
