Alex came to life last night as we were settling into bed at about 10pm. It was great for the 2 of us to have some un-interupted quality time with him. He had a good look around and fidget and at one point appeared to be doing a bit of big fish, little fish hand dancing. He then spent the night drinking steadily until 5am! When he woke at 7:30 he looked quite groggy with his face and eyes all creased up looking like an old tortoise with a hangover. He had also sicked on his baby-grow – that’s my boy! A couple of hours later he had his eyes wide open and was ready for another feed, hair of the dog I suppose.
I’m taking Maria Christmas shopping this morning and making an appointment to register the birth, the phone system at Heron house is a bit of a nightmare so we’ll go in person but don’t expect to be given an appointment for later in the day. I think the registration will be our first family trip out together early next week.
