Please don’t panic, I do not intend to write a post every week for the rest of Piran’s life! It is just at the moment this is adding structure and meaning that I am writing at least one post a week which is good for me.
Things are…wonderful, tiring, mind blowing, scary, exhausting, overwhelming, joyful, fabulous. That feeling that I had before Piran was born of being so in love with Mr C has just tripled with the love that I feel for my gorgeous son and the love I feel when I see my two special men together. Life is not all cupcakes and roses (more like sterilisers and baskets of washing) but after Piran has cried for 2 hours in the evening and then had a bottle and fallen so fast asleep that when we try and burp him he crumples up like a little floppy Buddha baby my frustration is washed away by the rush of love I feel for this amazing creature.
It was a good week for us. The two of us got out and about lots and lots. Tesco’s and the tip on Monday, a walk on Tuesday, Asda and Matalan on Wednesday, had a visit from Girlie number 1 on Thursday and Friday was a walk in the morning and Tesco’s and the bank in the afternoon. We also went out in the evening with Mr C, once we even made it to the pub to sit in the sunshine and have a drink while Piran hiccuped (appropriately) away in his pram.
Yesterday was another few milestones – our first trip out in the car as a family, our first nappy change in public (and it was a big dirty one, baptism of fire!), first feed outside of the house (on a bench at Sheffield Park, in the back of the car!). Now I would be happy to go out for longer than a couple of hours although when he wants his bottle he goes from asleep to screaming hungry in about 30 seconds flat which does not give you much time and it is hard when he is screaming in public. Cannot be helped though!
