Happy 3 Week Birthday Thomas

Can you believe it? Thomas is 3 weeks old today! Time is going very quickly and we are all still trying to adapt to being parents... Thomas is changing all the time, we have good days where he feeds very well (has been an effort to learn how to breast feed, but we've done it) then other days when he'll go hours without waking at all and I dance around the room singing silly songs to wake him up - This doesn't work and we usually have to put him in a bath to wake him up.. cruel, but food is the only way to get him back up to birth weight and get rid of the jaundice. We've had weekly trips to hospital and were referred there last night by the doctor who thought he was too sleepy/floppy and jaundiced. Tests show he is below treatment levels...and the more and more I think about it, he is just like Fink and I...we can go hours without any food, then will have 1/2 big meals! He's a constant worry and being a mum is the hardest job in the world, but we are confident that if we stay calm, persist with the feeding, then he'll be big and strong and I'll be moaning about him not sleeping in no time at all!

Reason for blogging and not getting some sleep now, is to say sorry world if I'm not replying to texts/emails/phone calls. I promise, we'll catch up with you all individually in time...but for now, I'm going to get some breakfast, then sleep as I feel it will be another long day and night.
