Early Days...

Our little man has been with us for a few days now and already it is hard to imagine life without him. To say that I am in love with him is an understatement. :)
A rare awake moment on Day 4!
These early days are so precious and I am relishing every moment of this fleeting newborn period. Most of little Elliot's days have consisted of sleeping and feeding...with a little bit of crying in between.
I love the way newborns look like little old men when they scrunch up their faces
I am slowly getting used to surviving on less sleep and adjusting to the night feeds. Given the amount of time I was up in the night while pregnant, it doesn't seem too bad at the  moment! 
My little burrito, all wrapped up and snuggly
With a five year gap since we last had a newborn in the house, I have forgotten how fast the days fly by. It seems like there are less hours in the day than I thought! We are just taking it easy at the moment and spending lots of time at home getting settled.
Cuddles with big sister
Big sister Rosie just loves her new brother and is such a little mother to him. She loves helping me take care of him and cuddling him. Big brother Harry on the other hand, well I am sure he loves his new brother too, but we have had a few "accidental" poking incidents. It must be hard to be bumped from your position as 'baby' of the family. :)
My sleepy striped baby
There is a lot more washing (Elliot brings up his feeds quite frequently) and the house isn't as tidy as I would like it, however I am trying to learn to just let it go and go with the flow. Having a third baby, I know how fast the days, weeks, months and years go by and I want to enjoy every moment and appreciate it in ways that I perhaps didn't with my first two. So that is where we are at in these early days! :) 
Most hours of the day are spent in here...zzz
