I’m very happy to introduce baby Síofra who joined our family a month ago! She was born on the 7th of March weighing 4.2kg or 9lbs 4oz. Never listen to anyone who thinks vegans can’t grow big babies! She is perfect and healthy and I’m doing great too. I had a very healthy pregnancy and straightforward delivery and am feeling great now, only a little tired, but very happy.
I’m completely in love and have spent the last month just enjoying bonding and getting to know her. The month has gone by in a blink of an eye. I love when they’re newborn and it goes by too quickly, but I’m making the most of it, getting as many cuddles in as I can. She is such a sweet baby, very alert and loves smiling!
Breastfeeding is going really well and she’s thriving. She has gained over half a kg already and you can see how big and strong she’s getting. She loves trying to hold her head up and look around.
Her two big brothers really love her. They’ve been amazing. I knew that Rian loves babies but was so happy that Oran has taken well to her too. He’s only 22 months so I was a little worried that he’d be upset or jealous, but he isn’t at all. Both of them love hugging and kissing her and are really happy about having a little sister. I’m so proud of them both.
I’m very busy with three kids but in a way it’s easier with the third baby because I know what I’m doing by now so am quite relaxed about it. We’ve been taking things easy, relaxing at home a lot, playing, watching movies, going for walks, and just spending time together as a family.
I haven’t been blogging much at all for the past few months and this is why. I was pretty tired while I was pregnant (looking after two kids while pregnant is hard work!) and was busy preparing for our new arrival. But now that she’s here and settled in, I’m hoping to find more time for blogging soon.
