**I’m typing this one handed so please excuse any spelling mistakes. Ivy will not settle in her chair today and just wants to be held the whole time. She has a cold and sounds pretty pitiful with her little blocked nose. I tried out our new nasal aspirator but I was convinced I was about to suck her brain out.
**Talking of holding babies…Mother’s guilt is a terrible thing. I’m already worrying about getting the baby into bad habits by picking her up too much or not letting her learn to sleep in her basket…but she’s 3 week old. Too early for too much routine, right?
**Talking of routine…I am seriously the worst night-time feeder in the world. Josh is so good to put up with me because I find it so hard and to wake up at 1am and 5am and I am CRABBY.
**Talking of sleep…I’ve started going to bed at 8pm. I feel like all the new-parent stereotypes are probably true.
**My new obsession is Grey’s Anatomy. I’ve watched the whole of season one on LoveFilm in a day whilst feeding and rocking…It’s sooo good!
**This photo makes me laugh a lot. Ivy filled her nappy at the exact moment I took the photo – hence the expression!
**When will it stop raining?
**I think Ivy might finally be asleep. I’m going to try and do the dishes…
