Her biggest fan club, her siblings. They adore her and are very gentle and soft with her, it is lovely.
In these first days lots of sleeping, which is great for a mumma needing rest and recovery.
4 days old and she has changed so much already. Her face is smoother, and eyes brighter and more open. Her fan club love to sit and watch them stroke her hair and cheeks. This is both heart warming and has me 'eek' at the same time, making sure the littlest ones touch her gently.
She has already had one sibling accidentally poke her in the eye, and another elbow her in the head and sit on her trying to get closer. This is part of being the youngest and happened to her siblings before her.
For this baby girl she has older siblings too, ready to jump in and make sure she is ok and all is well.
I can't stop looking at her. She is here, outside the warmth and snugness of my womb. Now she she is there, cradled in her daddy's arms. Like her siblings before her, I feel as though she has always been here, just waiting her turn.
Her first trip will be to Nanna and Poppy's house for christmas in a few days. Thankfully this year it is a very low key, easy christmas. Perfect for a new bub and mumma who needs to take it slow and heal well.
I hope everyone out there has a wonderful holiday season.
