Today Éowyn is one week old. She marked this momentus occasion by going on her first adventure since arriving home from the hospital. It was only down the road to nan and grandad’s house but it is a journey that she will come to know very well. We carried her there in her car seat but collected her pushchair from nan and grandad and wheeled her back. I think that Lucinda needs a few pushchair lessons!
We had a little more sleep last night but it was mainly due to better organisation by us. We took it in turns to placate her while the other slept. Unfortunately as we are trying to establish breastfeeding this means that Lucinda has to wake every three hours to feed her, but hopefully that will change when Lucinda starts to express, then I can do one of the night feeds.
Éowyn is definitely growing, she has already grown out of one of her sleepsuits! So it is a good job that she has a bigger wardrobe than me. She will be weighed on Monday when the midwife pays us a visit and I fully expected her to be over 8lbs. She definitely feels heavy at 0200 after two hours of walking around the room singing Elvis songs to her.
Tomorrow I will introduce her to the delights of Soccer Saturday on Sky Sports News and we can listen out the football scores with a very special eye on the West Bromwich Albion v Hull City game. Let’s hope she can use her baby voodoo to send some luck to the Albion.
Here are a couple of today’s photos,
