December with Harry

I wasn't expecting to be writing a December with Harry post, seeing as he came 3 weeks early! He definitely doesn't take after me and his dad in that department! You can read about his birth here.

Harry was born December 16th and our story begins from there.

We had to spend our first few days as a family in hospital due to Harry being so small, it was a routine of feeds, nappy changes and temperature checks. The midwives and health care assistants were all incredible, I cannot thank them enough for all their kindness and support during our stay. Never the less, I was ready to go home and start our life together and get into our own rhythm.

The first few days were spent cuddling, feeding and getting to know one another. Harry is such a good baby, he only cries when he wants his food or when we change his nappy. The rest of the time he is fairly content. He loves to be cuddled, but will equally be happy to be popped in his mosses basket for a snooze. I'm hoping I'm not jinxing this by writing it down!

We had lots of visitors and Harry enjoyed plenty of cuddles. He has been thoroughly spoilt by our family and friends with so many gorgeous presents. I just need to find time to put them all away now!

We rushed out to buy him some Christmas outfits and gifts as I couldn't bare the thought of not having anything for him, even if he doesn't know anything about it! We wrote him a special card which we will pop in his memory box.

 We spent our first Christmas just the 3 of us due to my family being ill. We had dinner, opened his presents and watched films. I took too many photo's, that I'm sure he will see when he's older!

We also braved our first proper family outing, we had walked to the local shop already, but this time we ventured further and took him for a proper walk as it was a very mild Sunday afternoon. We even managed to have cake and hot chocolate which was a nice bonus!

This New Year's Eve we spent it at home with our family. We chatted and watched TV in our comfy clothes, how times have changed!

Here is to 2019, the year of making memories as a family. 
Happy New Year from my family to yours.
