Why hello there! We’re back!!!
Welcome to The Week That Was: Captured! Have you had a wonderful few weeks? Apologies for the lack of #TWTWC over the past three weeks – someone rather lovely arrived in our lives and I’ve been busy getting to know him!
“Indy” (blog alias) arrived on Tuesday 23rd June 2015 at 14.31 BST, weighing in at 8lb 7oz. He’s so delicious!
Anyway, back to #TWTWC!
The rules for #TWTWC are simple; link up one post about your week (it doesn’t have to be the whole week – it can just be one day, or your weekend)! It can be photographed, Instagrammed, written, videoed… basically in any format you wish! This linky is about capturing memories and I treat it a bit like an online diary. Please only link up relevant posts. Also, if you fancy commenting on other people’s posts that would be super too – everyone loves a comment!
I won’t bother recapping all of the past three weeks as it has pretty much been:
- feed Indy
- eat cake
- drink tea
- have a nap
- stare at Indy
- change nappy
But I’ll write about the highlights!
Tuesday 23rd June: “Indy” arrived! What an amazing day! You can read his birth story here – I would wholeheartedly recommend a home water birth to anyone thinking of having one.
Wednesday 24th June: Busby met Indy for the first time, as did all the grandparents.
The two weeks that followed involved lots of family time, with Nick on paternity leave… and lots of time with my boobs out feeding! Indy is quite the greedy chap! I breastfed in public for the first time, which I’m really proud of and am so glad feeding in public is not as daunting as I thought it might be… a little awkward at times *boob flash*!
Indy and I visited the Midwife on Monday (6th July), and she confirmed he’s putting on weight, which is such a relief that my milk seems to be keeping him afloat! He then proceeded to wee all over her, which was slightly awkward…especially as she’d just run out of paper towelling.
My Mum arrived on Tuesday evening to stay for a few days as Nick was due back at work on Wednesday.
Wednesday was spent feeding… and playing with Busby in the garden when Indy was asleep in the afternoon!
We went into Beverley on Thursday for a spot of lunch and shopping… We had a lovely wander around and catch up, and I dealt with Indy’s first public poonami incident! I’d forgotten about those! Thank goodness for the chai tea latte waiting for me afterwards… 15 minutes of crying, a whole pack of wipes and an entire outfit change later!
We headed to Waitrose on Friday to pick up picnic things, and then spent the afternoon in the garden eating and playing in the paddling pool.
My Mum went home on Saturday and I spent most of the day feeding Indy! Which is pretty much how I’m spending life right now! We did a small amount of prep for our Wimbledon Final “Party” on Sunday… which involved another trip to Waitrose!
What have you been up to this week?
