Day Four

Thanks so much for all your messages on here/twitter/facebook. I announced Wilf's birth on Wednesday evening before collapsing into bed and woke up to over 100 twitter messages! We feel very loved, I wish I could reply to you all.
I am hoping to get round to writing Wilfryd's birth story at some point (before it becomes a vague memory) but I don't want to rush it as it was truly amazing and I need to do it the justice it deserves.
It seems quite normal already now to be a mum and have this little gloworm depend on me. Life has been pretty much back to basics and mine and Wilf's priorities are pretty much tantamount, eating and sleeping (and a lot of pooing from Wilfie). Day three was certainly our hardest day, my mum had left and the night before Tom had got the tummy bug (that I had on Tuesday that actually sent me into labour) and had been sick all night. Wilf hadn't slept for more than 15/20 mins at a time and wanted to feed constantly so I hadn't slept a wink either. Also my milk came in yesterday and I found feeding extremely painful. Luckily today is another day and its amazing how refreshed you can feel on four hours sleep (not four hours in a row I have to add but still four hours at all is a great improvement on zero). I find it easier if you just think of time as sleep time and awake time and not necessarily day or night, that way when you can sleep you sleep and when you cant you don't feel cheated out of anything. That being said at the moment I haven't yet left the house or needed to do anything in the day so night and day don't really have much significance at the moment anyway. 
Wilf is so amazing, my favourite times are just after he has fed and he looks up at me and it feels like we are sharing this amazing connection. His daddy sings him Britney songs and changes the words to make up silly versions about Wilfryd, its the cutest thing and he seems to really love them! You can tell that straight away he recognises our voices and knows we are his family.
Well thats it for now, kisses from Wilfryd Cadno xoxo
