Not so mini now

Laurie was weighed today and she is 8lb 9oz now (she was 5lb 14oz at birth). Noticeably chubbier. This probably means I won’t need to update you on weight any more as any concerns anyone may have had about her being on the tiny side, well now she is heading up towards being average for […]

Gas problem

Poor Laurie has been suffering from too much gas and so has been ‘blowing off’ (to be polite) excessively. This has of course caused her some distress which we can help relieve by producing burps using this position

It’s been sad to see her upset and her really fat tummy (she floated in the bath). […]

I’m so proud

Laurie has put on 1lb in a week and 2 days – she is now 6lb 15oz!!

I do feel this is largely down to my efforts (and the odd bottle of formula). So she’s now on the graph – before she was off it.

I can also say we are managing a mother & […]

What I’m getting up to

Saturday – Annie came in morning to check I was being cared for properly (she decided I was), Monique and Sarah (both having babies this year) came to visit – Monique gave me my first dungarees.

In the afternoon we went to the local farm & saw an ugly turkey, that evening we let Daddy […]

Dressing up

Laurie does her convict impression while wearing her favourite zebra stripe sleepsuit.


Uncle Roger & the Canadian booties

Laurie met Great Uncle Roger today! He came bearing gifts from the relatives in Canada who I know are actively following the blog. So obviously a picture in her Canadian boots was required.

Thank you and love to Canada!


Where does time go?

Laurie is now 3 weeks old! She was weighed yesterday and is back at birth weight. I will be very pleased when she’s over 6lbs.

Still, she’s a contented soul so hopefully being small is no problem at the moment.

We realised we’ve stopped taking photos of her but she is alot more alert these […]

Happy New Year

Well, main topic of conversation these days are my breasts – I have to be careful about this as obviously some people just don’t want to know!

Laurie is nearly back to birth weight and midwife and health visitor came today.

We were at a service of thanksgiving yesterday for my Godmother Sandra who died […]

Coming together

Well I’ve had some sleep the last couple of nights, we’ve done 4 pram trips locally, I’ve been dressed each day and my baby has put on 180g! So we are on the up.

Still not much luck with the baby on the breast (really sorry about all the breast talk but it’s a big […]

Outing to Ginny’s Flat

Well it’s best to take these things slowly. We went to Gin’s flat on Boxing Day evening, when Laurie was exactly one week old. She still hasn’t reached her due date though – December 30th (we lied when we said it was New Year’s Eve).
