The best (slightly late) birthday present possible: Life Update #9

Hello. I’ve been away from the blog for a bit, but there is quite a good reason for it. My birthday was on the 29th of last month, and two days later, on the evening of 31st, my wife gave birth to our third son. I meant to post at the start of the month, but with him being here, little sleep, the start of the new academic year and intermittent paternity leave, I haven’t really felt up to blogging. But yeah- he’s here, and absolutely, sublimely perfect. I’d forgotten just how small and delicate newborns are, but it is interesting just how quickly you adapt to handling them and how quickly you treat it as second nature. It all comes back to you, and after a day or so it felt like he had been here for months. We’ve now got his feeding sorted, and this is proving a lot easier than I’d expected it would be, and even the night-times are fairly straight forward now, as he is only waking up a few times at fairly set intervals, and doesn’t really cry that much. When he does, he’s quite quiet. To be fair, we probably couldn’t have asked for a better baby. Then again, I suppose we are slightly biased in thinking that he’s perfect. But hey. I love my children, and if I think that they are perfect, then they are. I wouldn’t change them for the world.
