The Wonders of Big Sisters

Big One ( or should that be Biggest One?) has been ever so helpful this morning. DH has gone out for some me time, leaving me, Big One and Baby home alone for the morning. Big One has kept an eye and a cuddle ready for Baby, letting me have a shower, cook us breakfast (second breakfast for some!) put the nappy wash on and let him fall asleep on her before she got to eat her second breakfast. Multitasking big sis!
We're going to try out the pushchair later, at her request. He's only been in slings so far, apart from 3 van trips in the car seat. I'm not quite ready for her to sling him- yet!

Little Big Sis can't be left out- she needs at least twice daily cuddles with him, helping with nappy changes and always a loving pair of arms waiting for him. Couldn't be more loved xxx

Last Week

Well, I got a few things done. Tuesday they turned into yummy blackcurrant cordial- it should keep a couple of months, but I doubt we'll have it that long.

Tuesday was also the Tooth Fairy's first visit- Big one was very excited.
Wednesday we had a good picking of strawberries, so Thursday  Little One helped me make strawberry sauce before nursery (I was too impatient to boil it that bit more to make it set into jam, and its disappearing even quicker than the cordial!).

Just the perfect amount for 1 jar.

Oh and Friday. I didn't get the rest of the blackcurrants picked nor made jam.
But we did keep very busy- bump has gone and here's Little Man.
less than an hour old
9 lb 6 oz, so not so little, and in the end arrived very quickly. I've been consistent with all labours getting midwives to think I'm not as far along as I am- DH was preparing the girls for it taking much longer, so nearly missed the birth.

A day old with placenta wrapped up in the bowl (lotus birth for googling!)

Big One loves a chance to cuddle him.

Little One loves being a big sister (whispers) she was the first big sister to cuddle him- she gets up so early Big One was still sleeping!
