Weeks 13 and 14

Joseph has reached that stage now where he is utter cuteness but also makes you feel sad because you know those early baby days are gone forever, and I know I'll never have any more. When I start to feel low about this I just think of the wonderful things yet to come, sitting, crawling, toddling, his first words. Even as he leaves babyhood behind I get to experience playing games with him, his first day at school, and so much more for so many years to come. One of the things I am looking forward to is seeing some hair on his head.

Joseph's latest talent is laughing, he has the cutest most infectious laugh, absolutely adorable.

Next week it's his second immunisations. I should have took him this week but we've had a bug going around and I think it's better for him to be well before he has them.

Weeks 11 and 12

Last week was half term and I barely got five minutes to myself. It was nice not to have to rush around in the morning though and I got to see my girls lots.
Joseph was really poorly, he had a cold which wouldn't shift and a nasty cough and started being sick a lot. He was also off his food. So I took him to the dr and she said his chest was clear but he did have an ear infection, so she prescribed penicillin. I gave it to him for three days but he was sick every time so I stopped. He seems much better now though, but I have to see the health visitor tomorrow so I will mention it to her.

Joseph is so lovely now, he's always smiling and coo-ing. The only time he gets miserable is when he's tired and he generally has to have a cry before he will go to sleep. (Apart from when he wakes during the night.) We still don't have any type of routine but I think one is starting to develop now. He is also liking his bath more.

So now he is 12 weeks old, but not 3 months.... time to start thinking in months now!
