1 week old
I can't believe Rebecca was born exactly one week today. She has been so lovely and relaxed. She is a very content little baby. She has only really cried for her bath and during the heel prick blood test and even then she soon calmed down.
The first couple of days were pretty horrible in terms of exhaustion but seeing her wiggles and snuggles made it all worthwhile. I hope she continues to feed really well as she has only lost 1oz from her birth weight of 7lbs 7oz. She is looking far more rounded and certainly fills enough nappies to show that everything is working well.
Gareth has been amazing and has done so many changes that I am actually not very good at them for lack of practise. Fingers crossed that she continues to sleep at night time and doesn't change her routine too much, especially for Gareth when he gets back to school.
Rosie and Gem came to visit today. Rosie brought Rebecca two of her old toys but decided to take them home again when she left! She was very gentle with the baby and didn't make a fuss when Gem had a cuddle. What a good girl!
