So I’ve been away for a bit, and I’m likely to be sort of here and there on the posting for a while.
I had my baby! His name is Jack, and he was born 6 weeks ago on 5 September 2017. He was a big born when he was born 9 pound 5 ounces, and came naturally (TMI – but hey giving birth is a reveal everything type moment.)
He’s fairly good on the sleeping, but my issue right now which is making it hard to get anything done (painting, stitching, housework etc) is that he is SUCH the cuddly boy! He just wants to be held 24/7, which, because he’s still only 6 weeks old, I’m allowing him to do as much as he wants really. He’s starting to come right now though (starting) and sometimes – like right now – allows me to put him down without him waking up and crying. So I’m taking this opportunity to get a short position to let you all know what’s what.
His sister is completely in love, and so are we all.
Can’t wait to get back into regular work though. Maybe when he is 3 months he might be a bit more settled into a routine, and happy to be off me. Let us hope! If not, I need to build up my back muscles again so I can wear him while I work.
I was planning to paint a portrait to enter into the Adam art award, but what with Jack being along, I’m going to run out of time. Sadly. Instead I will have to put something together for next time maybe. I had started the painting before Jack too, so thats a bit gutting. But anyway. That is life with a new born I guess. Taking it a day at a time.
