My first weeks
Hi there. My name is Nora. I’ve been around for a couple of weeks now, so it’s about time I talk to you directly. Don’t you agree?
Life has been exciting so far. It was pretty comfy in mum’s womb for a long while, but I noticed it got tighter by the week. When I finally went to have a look at the other side, there was a lot of fuss going on in the hospital. But mum and dad were very happy to see me. After a couple of days they took me home, where I was welcomed by Mr. Owl. He’s been there ever since, looking after me.
The first weeks were so exciting that I really didn’t bother to sleep much. This was partly due to me and mummy struggling through our feeding sessions. It just didn’t work that well. Contrary to what mum’s magazines preach, my parents want me to gain weight. So they came up with a new plan. Mum now first expresses the mother milk with a pump, before feeding it to me in a bottle. That was a great move. Since then I haven’t been hungry anymore, and our little family got into a bit of a routine. Now all of us sleep a bit more, and I am actually gaining weight!
Mum is slowly recovering from my birth, and despite a few small setbacks she is getting fitter by the day. We sometimes go out for a small walk, and we’ve already been to a wedding. How cool was that?! Look here for some more pictures.
All in all you can say that we have a happy little family. I get spoiled with lots and lots of attention by mum and dad. Also I receive lots of presents and mail from all of you guys. Thanks heaps everyone ! In return I give you the joy of being gorgeous and cute me! Mum and dad seem to love it, although I don’t always sleep when they want me to. But you shouldn’t spoil your parents too much, should you?!?
