Being a Mummy...

It's official, Flyingpops is now disorganised...
During the c-section
Since becoming a Mummy, the world has just flown completely into chaos...babies do not obey any sort of schedule, are always late for their appointments and stubbornly refuse to hit required targets until they are quite ready (target weight only just permitted us to come home yesterday)...none-the-less, in an attempt to transpose the world of work into the world of parenthood, Thomas now has a "day book" to detail his feeding patterns, and the mobile phone calendar is now full of reminders to bath, feed and take pain killing drugs...how things have changed...

Last Wednesday, sat on the 1659hrs from London Bridge to Earlswood, I couldn't have ever imagined that my very next journey was going to be an early morning rush into hospital, followed, in extremely short order, by major surgery and then all the responsibilities of motherhood (five weeks before I was ready, not one pregnancy aqua yoga lesson attended)...!

Anyway, there is already so much to tell, and so many pictures to share, but there is a certain little person who seems to be managing to completely monopolise all Mummy and Daddies available time...Daddy will post some more of the pictures really soon, I promise...

We also have a huge pile of gifts on the kitchen table laying at least 50% unopened (surrounded by formula, bottles, nappies and cotton balls), but a few lovely outfits and cuddly bears have made it into the crib, push chair and changing station already - so thank you everyone collectively...

More to follow...now Mummy must go and catch up on her sleep...night night...
