Baby Watch: Week 3

Dear Tyne,

Today you turned 3 weeks old!

Those 3 weeks have absolutely FLOWN by!


Poorly Mummy

I've come down with yet ANOTHER mystery illness this week (seriously, Its ridiculous how many things I have had wrong with me since the birth! First a stinking cold, then a gallbladder attack, then a kidney infection and now what seems to be a throat infection! AAAARGH! Poor Mummy!) so I'm not feeling too hot and I'm trying not to pass on my germs to you so Nanny has been helping a lot by giving you feeds etc while Daddy is at work.

Christening Plans

I've been trying on outfits for yourchristening which is in about 12 days time - eeek! Nothing looks nice on me. Bit of a silly idea to plan a Christening so soon after giving birth as I hadn't bargained for how hard it would be to fit into any nice dresses and look halfway decent!!
I think Daddy & I will have to go into town tomorrow and see what we can hunt down....

But we have at least chosen the venue for the party afterwards, a lovely local community centre which is just the right size and has a gorgeous wooden high beam ceiling!

So I've decided to do a Vintage Tea Party theme! I'm very excited as Nanny & I have been coming up with lots of nice ideas for what we can do to make it a nice day!

We also met the Vicar who will be Christening you this week and he was lovely!

Midwife Visits & Hernia

Today the midwife came to see us and, since your chord has now fallen off, she's discharged us and handed us over to the Health Visitor - who we also met today and is very nice.

The midwife did mention that it seems that you have an umbilical hernia - she said that they won't do anything about it until you are around 2 years old and that most cases resolve themselves anyway, I hope it does as from Googling it I've found out that sometimes Doctors recommend surgery to correct them when the child is a toddler...eeek! :/



Eating & Sleeping

This week you has been much more awake during the day - you love looking all around, especially out of the window. You also love being sung to - your favourite songs that I sing to you seem to be "All my Loving" (So you're a little Beatles fan! YAY!) and "Wind My Bobbin Up" - you always go quiet and stare at me when I sing those songs!

Tyne & Daddy

You have also been sleeping a little better of a night now - you tend to wake up every 2 hours for a feed. This is much better than previously as you weren't sleeping in your moses basket at ALL of a night! So two hour slots are much better than nothing!

For the last few nights you have gone down at around 1 am, and woken at around 3am, 5am and then at 7am - so not too bad really!


Things You've Done This Week

This week you had another bath - every time you have had a bath so far you have absolutely screamed the house down!


I usually have the bath temperature quite low as I'm worried about over heating you - but this week, we gave  you a bath that was as warm as its allowed to be for a baby - and you LOVED it!!!

You didn't cry at all, you splashed around a bit and then fell asleep in the water!! So you definitely take after Mummy as I like my baths nice and hot!!


You have also been making us laugh a lot with the funny faces you pull and the funny noises you make.

You make snorting sounds a lot when you cry, so I call you Piglet.

You also pull this face a lot:

 

We call it your "Blue Steel" post as you look just like Zoolander when you do it!

That's all of our news for this week!

Lots Of Love,

Mummy xxx

  1. He is so beautiful. My son was 7 weeks prem & he had a really bad umbilical hernia. We were told that it would hopefully be gone by his 1st birthday. It went away when he was about 5 months old :)

  6. Don't worry too much about the hernia Hayley. Stace had one when she was born and they said that it would more than likely clear up by her first birthday - and it did, an entire week before!

    Loving all the pics and everything. Only two weeks and one day now until my due date, eek.

    Hope you feel better soon.
