And a whole bunch of dirty nappies in there too.
Joshua has been home for two weeks now! It’s been pretty crazy, and we’re all learning a lot, but we’re all doing great. The midwife came and weighed him on Friday – he has gained about 330 grams, which is 10% of his body weight. I think that’s pretty impressive. We had to feed him through a syringe for a few days, but that is pretty well all sorted out and he is feeding well now.
He is such a good boy for us – he sleeps really well and isn’t bothered too much by noise. He been sleeping for up to 6 hours some nights, which has been really nice. We are both still very tired, especially Kathryn, but we’re doing well. He has been great at church the last two Sundays, too – he sleeps through Sacrament Meeting, Kathryn takes him out to feed during Sunday School, and he comes back in a lies awake contentedly in his snuggle bag during Priesthood/Relief Society. He hardly makes a noise, and several people have asked “Where’s Joshua?”, because they didn’t notice him.
He still loves his tongue, and it is constantly going in and out of his mouth. He is also quite good with his fingers, stretching them every which way.
Just as I am writing this, he has been working hard at holding his head up. And filling his nappy. One of those is much cuter than the other…
We have taken a bunch more photos, and I’ll include some for you below.
*Edit* Joshua is being blessed at church this Sunday, September 6th, in Morialta ward. We meet at 9:00 am at Firle Chapel, 120 Gage St, Firle. We’d love for people to come, but we realise that it is father’s day, so it could be difficult for many.
