Welcome to the world my little boy!
For five days you stayed in hospital with mummy. Mummy went into labour four days overdue, and the assessment confirmed you were a big baby – probably too big for mummy to do it on her own, so we went ahead with a caesarian.
You were born on Thursday 21 April 2011 at 1:55am, weighing 3.87kg (8lb 9oz). You had a high bilirubin count so had to be under phototherapy at the neonatal unit so you wouldn’t get jaundice.
It was hard seeing you on your own under those harsh blue lights, and having blood tests taken several times a day. Thank goodness for the lovely staff who took good care of you.
I was so happy when the levels became normal and I was able to spend the nights with you close by – even though you kept me up for hours wanting to feed. Little boys can be such piggies!
You look so much like your big sister Abby when she was your age. She loves you lots, even though she can’t express it properly (that’s why she does things like trying to feed you luncheon). I can’t wait for you two to become best of friends.
All the pain and discomfort of pregnancy, labour and surgery has been worth it – even the vomiting from the drugs as I was feeding you after your birth! I love you Cameron.
