But have no energy or time.. so I am very much looking forward to the Christmas holidays. I get a week off. I don't care that work is forcing me to take that time off as leave. It will be a much needed break. Alex will be home for two weeks as the daycare centre will be closing for two weeks over Christmas. I think the carers deserve a break. I don't know how they do it every day with so many children. Looking after one crawler is exhausting enough for me!
We've had some good news, some not so good news and then some good news.
Good news - Lara
has given birth to Inigo last Thursday (yes, I know I am slack.. I should have posted sooner)
Not so good news - there were complications and they are are still in hospital today (full story here
Good news - Inigo is getting better and may be able to go home with Lara and Mark on the weekend
I went in to visit them and what a special moment it was. Inigo was having his first breastfeed and while I was there, they took him off the oxygen and dressed him in clothes for the first time. It's been making me rather sad thinking of the poor little baby starting out life with such trouble. Every day this past week I have been praying that he will recover quickly and this experience will leave him unscathed. It's also made me very thankful that Alex was born healthy and I never had to know the sort of stress that Lara and Mark are going through.
