Patrick's First Fortnight

Hard to believe, but little Patrick Martin has been with us for 2 weeks exactly (feels as though he has always been here with us!)

We are settled into a good routine, he is sleeping and eating well. Regained his birth weight by day 10, even given that he had 4 days in the speical baby unit at the start. Midwife is happy with him and he has already had his first bath.

I am recovering a lot quicker than last time and feel pretty good. Tired and a bit achey, but very happy. My sister is staying for 10 days whilst Alan goes back to work. Hoping that I will get some time to blog and sort photos.

Markus is relating well to his new little brother - he makes sure that he knows where baby is, tells Patrick to shush (with finger on lips) and says "Ba-by!" and gently prods him :-) So far, so good! He likes peering into the hammock to watch him sleep (see photo!)

Here are the snapshots from his first fortnight! click on photo to enlarge! More posts and photos to follow in the next week.
