Blimey. Babies take up a lot of time don’t they? 10 days ago on May 13th, Amelia Elyane Mitchell was born (weight: 3110g). It was a quick birth: the waters broke at 0330 and she was born at 1110.
Little screamy (as she is rapidly becoming known) is doing very well, apart from a tendency to dislike eating. This isn’t too healthy in a baby, so we’ve been getting our money’s worth out of the NHS in terms of midwife visits.
She is sleeping well, with no particular preference to location. One lap’s as good as another.
Now, a few days later she’s opening up her eyes and being a bit more perky.
Thankfully, the sleepless nights are falling into a pattern and we’re not being woken up too much. I might just be in working order by the time I return to work next Tuesday. Mind you, dealing with visiting relations is a large part of the tiredness too. 🙂
We are overjoyed to have her around. Life just got a whole lot better.

Many congratulations, sir! Our daughter’s just turned eight months, and practically every week has brought some delightful new development. Her first giggle was pretty much the highlight of December.
Very best wishes to you and yours!
Oh dear lord would you look at that. So sorry for the multiple posts—the submit button seemed to do nothing, so I assumed I hadn’t clicked it and clicked again. I’m guessing there was some ajaxification and a network delay, plus my own idiocy…
Sorry about the multiple posts, Andrew. I’ve cleaned them up now. I really must upgrade typo to the latest version…
Hmmm, that comment thing is really bad. I must fix that.
Hope everything continues to go wonderfully and she brings you lots and lots of joy and happiness.
Congratulations Dom. I was wondering why I hadn’t seen much activity from you on the BNM list recently. Now it all becomes clear!
Oh, how very sweet.
Enjoy this time. She’s be walking and talking before you know it.
