It's a boy!

Some baby news finally! Baby Jack was born last Tuesday- still can't believe I have a baby boy :) He was 12 days overdue but the labour/birth ended up being pretty quick after all the waiting! I had a drug- free birth which was an 'interesting' experience after having epidurals for my first two babies, glad I had it with my third and not my first!! Feeding is going well but Jack has not been too keen on sleeping in his bassinet- he spent the whole time in the hospital and the first 6 days pretty much sleeping in my arms (at least he slept I guess!) He has had some good sleeps in his bassinet the last 2 nights though so maybe we have turned a corner...my friend called it 'one step forward and 2 steps back' with a newborn which is so true!   He is a little cutie and has heaps of hair like my other two so I think it's true what they say about heart burn and hairy babies!  
Well, hope you all had a lovely Easter holiday. Looking forward to watching the royal wedding on Friday... if ever there was an excuse to sit on the couch all day then having a newborn is a good one!

By the way, I have just tagged you in a 'Kreativ Blogger' award over at my blog. Not sure if this is your kind of thing, so no pressure to to anything about it (and obviously I am aware you have just had a baby!) but it may send a few people your way.

congratulations! Love the name. Enjoy the precious baby time, it goes so quickly...

Mark said...

Yay so happy for you.. My son " Franco"was born on the Monday!! He also has taken issue with sleeping in his bassinet (sleeping in my arms 80% of the time).
My daughter is 3 and I had totally forgotten the demands of a newborn! One step foward and two back sounds totally right! Lucky babies are sooo sweet huh?!! Cant wait to follow your journey with Jack..
