Family visitors – mum and Grandma, my mother in law (Granny!) and my mum again. Love this so much. Baby feet. Breastfeeding and getting to know each other. First trip out with the pram on my own. Registering the birth. Last midwife appointment. Two growth spurts! Not much sleep. Writing letters and posting photographs to people. Visits from Rach & Rob, Katherine & Phoebe. Taking TTB to work to meet my colleagues. Making my photobook of TTB’s first two weeks. Central heating! Taking TTB out in the Ergo for the first time. Trips to Ilkley. Trip to Leeds – feeding in public for the first time. Taking TTB out for a meal with mum, Grandma and Andy when he was two weeks old. Cards and presents and flowers. Handknits! Writing thank you cards. Visit from The Girl. Visit from Ella and Rosie. Walks in the park … changing seasons. Beautiful sunlight. Autumn days. A crochet ta-daa and learning to crochet with a baby.
October: exhausting but wonderful.
