.Harvey's first week.

We've survived two weeks of newborn-madness in the house. And apart from keeping kids fed and dressed, a semi-tidy house and lots of baby snuggles nothing else has been achieved! Harvey is two weeks old today and is already changing so much. He seems so much more awake and alert and this morning he cooed at me - not yet little boy! He has mostly been sleepy and settled, but he is super spewey and suffers with a bit of wind. Hopefully it will pass with time as his tummy matures and he gets used to life outside the womb. Our nights have been mostly pretty good, he feeds every 3-4 hours and is usually finished and back to sleep within 45 minutes. 
Tommy has been a bit of a handful, I thought he would be though. He has been the baby for so long and has really noticed a shift in family dynamics. He is much better towards me and the baby now, but is still very demanding of me and wanting to be doing something with me all the time. He loves Harvey though and since we came home from the hospital has been calling him Borris! Lil is a great little Mummy, loving lots of cuddles and admiring Harvey's every move. Oscar was a bit stand-offish to begin with, but that's normal for him when it comes to any sort of change and he gives us updates on what Harvey is doing all the time now.
So that's the quick update for now - we've been so blessed to have friends and family bring us meals around since Harvey was born and are back to the "new normal" this week - wish us luck! 
Here are some photos from Harvey's first week...

He is a beautiful little man Toni.
I think he looks a lot like Oscar.
Put your feet up, and don't worry about the house, somebody will turn up and do things for you.
Love Auntie Lorraine.

He is just Gorgeous Toni. I love him! I love the little brown suit too, makes a change from all the usual colours. So funny about Tommy but so usual too for the youngest sibling. You guys all look happy. Take your time and don't stress about getting things done. Enjoy yourself. Have a good week x x x
