Dear Alice- WEEK 2

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Dear Alice,

Today you are 2 weeks old! I can't believe that this time 2 weeks ago, I was in labour and about to become a mummy for the first time. The 2 weeks before you were born seemed to drag by so slowly, and now time is really flying by. I can see why people say babies grow up so fast and to enjoy every day together!

You are so unbelievably alert already! Always sticking your head up to see what's going on. You pull the funniest faces and make the most hilarious noises, which are enough to make me smile even at 3am when you need feeding and changing again! You love the night time Alice and are awake for most of it, which is definitely making mummy very tired. You sleep for most of the day and I would love to join you, but there is always a health visitor or someone coming over, so I really can't.

You are drinking so much milk! You have put on lots of weight and now weight 9lb 3oz! This is very good, as it means that very soon a lot more of your clothes will fit you and I can dress you a little better... I'm afraid I didn't quite anticipate how big you would be at birth (8lb 12oz!), and so bought lots of little clothes which inevitably did not fit you... Whoops!

Definitely need to buy you some more toys as it's becoming more and more work to keep you occupied! Am thinking of buying a little toy keyboard for you. I can't wait till I can teach you to play the piano!



  1. She has grown up so much already! She's gorgeous and such an inquisitive little thing!

    You also look wonderful too - if my post-baby body springs back like that I'll be a happy girl!

  2. Sooo adorable! So happy for you, what a bundle of joy xx :o)

  3. Alice is absolutely perfect!! so happy for you xx


I love hearing your thoughts... (And don't forget to follow me too!)
