H is Two Weeks Old
This update is now 4 days late, which kind of defeats the purpose of having weekly updates... but we're playing catch up here. Hopefully in the next few weeks we can get back into a routine that means I can actually get posts out on time, doubtful though!
I am absolutely floored, more mentally and physically exhausted than last week (if that's possible), but still more in love than ever. Harrison is now two weeks old and it's time for this all to slow down a little. I cannot get over how quick this last fortnight has flew by, especially in comparison to how long the latter end of my pregnancy felt. Everyone told me to cherish the newborn days as they won't be here forever, and I'll be the first to admit I all but rolled my eyes, time is time after all, but now I understand. Time seems to fly. This week was busier, harder, and involved double the amount of mental breakdowns, but it's getting easier. I need to remember he is only two weeks old and therefore won't be settled for a while yet, we learn something new every single day, and with each day Harrison becomes more alert and more of a little person, which is amazing.

What About Mum?
So that's us, Week Two, over and done with. It's absolutely terrifying to think how quickly it's gone, and how in another two weeks time Harrison will be a month old. He already seems SO much older, just from the first week to the second, he's so much more alert and his eyes are open so much more now - it's only a matter of time before he can start seeing properly, and I've never been so excited about the prospect of something! Hopefully I'll manage to get the update up on time this week (given that it is now only four days away I'm not sure how likely that'll be)... slowly but surely we're getting back on our feet. Until then,
