And then there were four. Four you say? Yes, four. Only it turns out I don't have a decent photo of all four of us so here's a funny one taken at around 10 days old. Presenting Jackson George Bird. Born 29th of January 2015, weighing 8lb 4oz and measuring 21 inches long after a lovely (seriously, I thought it was lovely, I was a warrior princess!) short birth. Thank you for not coming on my birthday, Jay jr. You made your mummy a very happy lady.
Obviously many men have been there before but shortly after Jackson George Bird was born, I was beginning to wonder how on earth so many people have done this and not died trying? It seemed impossible. But I got over that and life has gone on and everything is much better now. In fact before we knew it, he turned 5 months. FIVE MONTHS. Seriously, I don't know where those months went but the crazy days turned into weeks and months and now I find the days a lot less crazy and actually quite pleasant. In fact, he has slept through the night 5 times over the passed seven days. Five times! We must be onto something here? In any case, I take that as a good sign for my future sleep habits, though I'm not sure I ever want to give up napping in the afternoon.
