My darling boy Arthur, you are now 8 weeks old and the days seem to pass with lightening speed. Sometimes I feel like the time is slipping through my hands like sand. Its too fast. They do say after each child it just goes faster and that is most definitely true.
You are the most chilled out little boy and the joy you bring to my heart is just so pure and so good. Waking up to your tiny little body in my bed and your tiny little face and all its features staring up at me almost brings tears to my eyes. In fact there have been many moments I have just cried my eyes out looking at you.
I wont forget the first time you smiled at me, you were about 6 weeks old and I was asking you to please smile for mummy and you gave me the biggest smile with quivering little lips I burst into the most happiest tears.
I am reminded just how many emotions you go through being a mum, from meeting each of my children and going though each of their milestones each time my heart growing bigger and each time feeling like my heart might burst. But I am made to feel like the luckiest mummy on a daily basis and it is all thanks to my three lovely children.
Arthur you are not hard to please all all my little one, you like to be warm you like to suckle whether thats breastfeeding or your dummy. You love to be held but also happy to sleep in your sleepyhead on your own. You sleep 7 hour stretches at night. You are still mostly asleep in the day and I am always shocked at how much you still sleep. Unless you are going through a leap (I use the wonder weeks) then you seem to be awake all day.
Im just enjoying every moment with you here with us and I waited those nine long and beautiful months to have you here in my arms and now that you are here I am still just as elated as the day I met you and held you in my arms for the very first time. I love you so much and I look forward to watching you grow. Thank you for making me your mummy.
