Happy Easter my sweet little easter bunny!
You celebrated your first easter with brunch and an egg hunt at grandmas on Saturday with Mummys family,
The second and third weeks of your life were spent mostly hanging out inside in the airconditioning as we sweltered our way through a record breaking heatwave here in Adelaide. I think it was 15 days in a row of temperatures above 35 c, with the majority being 38-40. I was so glad I wasnt pregnant still!
Ever since our second night in hospital you have been a tummy sleeper, during the day you are happy to sleep on your back or side in the rocker, but if you are in your bed you will only settle on your tummy. Both Caleb & Nathan were tummy sleepers too. You sleep
You are also a very 'sucky' baby. To try and discourage you from using me as a dummy and snacking constantly instead of having decent feeds, I tried to get you to take a dummy. No funky and cute little dummies for you though, Ive tried the gorgeous little pink nuk ones I bought before you were born - no way would you take them. I thought I might give a cheapy from the suermarket a go, and you love it! Its a latex cherry shaped happy baby one, and Mummy thinks it is aweful! I dont like the look of the round happy baby dummies, I dont like latex dummies, and Im not a fan of the cherry shaped teats! I tried a silicon teat in the cherry shape but you wouldnt take that so I guess I will have to learn to like them!
Im loving be mummy to a little girl more than I ever imagined I would. I love being surrounded by all the pretty girly things, gorgoeus clothes, hanging a line full of tiny pink things out, sitting and cuddling you. I guess its a special bond that a mother and daughter share. Its definaltely no more important than the special bond I share with each of your gorgoeus brothers, its just somehow different.
I treasure these newborn days, and I will make the effort to cherish each and every one of them. Some days are hard, and everyday is definately so much busier than it has ever been, but we all love you so much, and are grateful and blessed that you have come along and filled that void in our family, that until your arrival. we didnt even know existed.
I love you my sweet little girl
