A little update

Hi There!
Sorry for the absence, we were hit with a double whammy of viruses! After our few days of the sickness bug we had approximately two days of rest before a different strain went and kicked our asses. It was..trying I tell you.
After we started to feel better we sat on the sofa in a sort of shell shocked state and Tom told me I was hero..then I sobbed for about five minutes straight. Certainly the hardest week for a long long while..
Tuesday my mum came to visit for a few days. As my family live six hours away the last time she was able to see Wilf was when he was just a little over a week old so he's changed quite a lot since then! I feel so proud of my little boy, every day he surprises me with something new. He can now firmly grab and hit his mobiles, he is enthralled when you read to him and my gosh he loves baths.
We have started sharing baths the past few days Wilf and I, we bathed together a few hours after he was born but hadn't got round to it since then. I bought Burts Bee's baby bubble bath and he lies on me splashing away. I swear we even heard a proper giggle the other day (sure I know he's not supposed to be able to for another month but still..advanced y'know ;) )
I have been reading more of my 'What mothers do, especially when it looks like nothing' book and feeling more and more reassured in my capabilities as a mama. I am feeling comforted with the notion that babies have a 'rhythm' and not a 'routine'.
Our house it still a mess and there is always washing to do but I think we are getting into the swing of things now. I don't think I have ever felt happier!
