Well, it’s been emotional. By which I mean a bit hard. On about day four of life with baby number two I read an article on the BBC about how getting less sleep than you should means that your brain won’t form long term memories properly. Obviously I can’t tell you how much sleep was considered not enough though, it was 3am, I can’t remember.
So far, three weeks in, we’ve had reflux and colic diagnosed, a nine percent weight loss meaning we were told to wake the baby every 3 hours for a feed or take a trip to hospital, a slightly ruptured c-section and a woman, apparently in the prime of her life with eye bags down to her waist and an addiction to coffee re-discovered. I did say I missed coffee though so that’ll teach me.
