What a difference a year makes...

A year ago (on Dec 2nd and Dec 4th) we had just gone through the final stages of our IVF adventure (egg retrieval and then embryo transfer) and were beginning the long wait to hear whether we had been successful. The last few weeks I have been thinking a lot about this process.

And now our little lad is nearly 4 months old. He is discovering his hands and what he can do with them, which is mostly stuffing his fists in his mouth to suck on. He recognises us and watches us as we move around the room, smiles at us when we play with him. He laughs, but mostly for mr.ncot, which is a little frustrating! He loves his playgym, kicks vigorously and pulls the hanging animals down. He talks to us, making strange bit loud noises. And we love our new family life.

He is now 6.3kg, and 61.2 cm long. The Doctor on Friday was pleased with all his progress and was amazed that he sleeps 9 or 10 hours straight. Whatever we're doing, he said, we shouldn't change it, because it obviously works! I am slowly getting used to the frustrations of not being able to control how much I get done from my to-do-list :-) Photos as usual below...
