I can't believe my little baby is already 4 weeks old! In one way it feels like I only gave birth to her yesterday but on the other hand it also feels like she has been part of our life forever.
Paige now weighs 10lb 2oz! She is such a little chunk. She has grown so much during the last two weeks and has got so strong. She now loves to lift her head up and is actually pretty good. She is also discovering her hands and loves to put them in her mouth. Right from birth she has always been very talkative and these days we can't shut her up... she even makes the cutest little noises while she sleeps. She truly is a water baby and loves bath time and even falls asleep while she is in the bath... far too much like her daddy! She continues to be a good sleeper and eater. She wakes up around every 3 hours during the night. She hardly ever cries and just seems like a very happy and content baby. I feel very lucky to have such an easy going baby.
I am feeling good. I mostly feel like myself until I look in a mirror but I know that will come with time. I have no idea what I weigh but I plan to weigh myself when Paige is 6 weeks old and take it from there. I am still healing and my tear will take another few weeks until it is completely healed but it is healing well so far. I am finding the night feeds hard but get more used to them each night. I love been a mummy so much and can't imagine my life without her. Mark says i'm a natural mum and that Paige defiantly knows who her mum is as she is most content when I hold her. He finds this both the cutest thing and the most annoying as he wishes he spent as much time with her as I do.
Overall this has been the most amazing four weeks of my life and I can't wait for the next four!!
