Alfie

One Month

So my boy is one month today. One month, seriously, how did that happen? It seems like only yesterday it was just the two of us lying together in the hospital – so tiny, the smallest out of all my children, so new but yet already so awake. Now here we are, a month later already.

He feeds a lot all the time and I have already packed up the newborn clothes as they no longer fit! I feel so sad writing that, not just because Alfie is my last baby and these tiny little clothes will not be needed anymore, but also because it’s just all gone so fast. It sounds silly but I kind of feel like a pause button has been pressed on everyday life since he was born – we have cacooned ourself in this bubble pretty much just the five of us and the days have flowed into the nights.

He likes to be held constantly, he gets so unsettled otherwise and, whilst it is tough with 2 other children and always lots to do, I kind of welcome this. I love holding him close to me, snuggling him, smelling him, he is just amazing and I want to take it all in. As these last four weeks have showed me, he won’t be in the tiny ball shape that only a newborn has for much longer, it will all be a distant memory sooner than I realise.

He is so alert with his gorgeous big eyes watching me, like he understands every word I say. However, I do think this one is going to be a Daddy’s boy as he settles so much easier with him but I honestly don’t mind – I am really looking forward to watching their relationship develop.

He is happiest in his pram going for walks. We are such an outdoors family that this comes as no surprise really and we are looking forward to the weather warming up so we can get out and about even more.

He may have only been in our world for one month but, oh Alfie Hugh, you have fully captured all of our hearts.

  1. Wow that month went fast! He looks adorable and I hope you’re all doing well. Sadly we have decided not to have anymore, but one is a pretty good number for us, I do miss newborn cuddles though! x #TheOrdinaryMoments

  2. Oh the time really does go so quickly – my youngest is three now and my facebook keeps showing me tiny baby pictures!

  3. Time goes far too fast when they’re teeny tiny doesn’t it – and none of mine have been particularly tiny so it seemed to go even faster! He is utterly gorgeous – long may your baby moon continue 🙂

  4. This is beautiful and actually made me cry. As much as you try to pause it all and soak in those newborn cuddles together it goes so fast doesn’t it? My last little ‘ baby’ will be 2 in a matter of days and it seems like yesterday I was embracing these moments too xx

  5. Gosh that first month went so fast!He’s so adorable and it does go so fast doesn’t it? I’ve packed up all the 0-3m clothes the other day and I know what you mean about it being a sad moment xx #maternitymondays

  6. This post made me quite emotional. He is so gorgeous, all squishy and new still yet a month old already. They do grow so fast don’t they? I remember packing away those newborn clothes, so sad x

  7. Gorgeous picture and gorgeous baby! I’m so jealous of all of the exciting times you guys have together! Newborn is such a special time that is gone so fast! cherish every moment <3

  8. One month already! It goes so quickly doesn’t it? And look at his squishy cheeks, he is gorgeous. I love it when they sleep like that. I just can’t believe I am never going to experience that again—– aaaaaah time slow down! You enjoy him lovely xx

  9. Aww, Alfie is absolutely adorable! I know what you mean about treasuring those fleeting moments, especially when you put their little clothes away… it reminds you they’re growing so fast… my (second) boy is nearly 6 months and i can’t believe when the time has gone! Part of me wants to hold on to all his clothes and keep looking at them every now and then 🙂 xx #LivingArrows

  10. Firstly, I love his name.
    Our Freddie is our last baby too (and third baby). I absolutely loved the newborn stage and cuddles. Loved reading this post. He’s beautiful. #MarvMondays
