Today grandpa went back home after helping us out for a week. In the evening Owen was quite happy again and I spent some time reading to him.
Today I felt sad about being annoyed with Owen when he was rough and loud, and difficult, and felt like I was going to crack under the sleep deprivation. Still been up almost all night and most of the day feeding baby who wouldn't unlatch even when asleep.
Today Peter took Owen to see Nick Cope in Oxford. But when Owen got back, he looked sad and finally admitted that he felt sad because of baby sister, but wouldn't tell me more.
Today went to see the midwives for our 5 days postnatal checks. Afterwards we went to Jaffe & Neale for coffee, cake, and quick sketch, and baby sleeping soundly all this time!
Today baby had been screaming at night and wouldn't breastfeed, we had to call the midwives in desperation. In the end it turned out she was just gassy. In the afternoon Peter took Owen to Witney to get baby a present.
Today grandpa departed to see Peter's sister's baby (born yesterday!). I finally got to play with Owen (who came home from nursery face-painted as The Incredible Hulk), and catch up with various communications and social media.
Today I was sleep deprived from feeding baby all night. Peter's sister gave birth to a baby girl today!
Today I spent most of the day recovering from childbirth at the hospital, and got discharged in the evening.
Today we went to the hospital for an induction and our new baby girl was born before midnight!
Today grandparents came down to stay in anticipation of our hospital appointment for induction tomorrow morning. Sadly it seems we're going to have to induce labour this time as well.
