After what seemed like weeks and weeks of waiting around (not to mention immense boredom as we are used to travelling on weekends), little Jorge finally arrived on 03 April 2014. What a trip it has been so far and this little munchkin has completely swept me off my feet.
Today he is a week old and already we have learnt so much.
The first night he wept because he was hungry, but we thought it was colic and his crying nearly killed us because we couldn’t stand to see him in pain. They say having children is like ripping your heart out to wear on your sleeves. Now I get what that means.
Jorgito has huge paws for hands and he looks like a frog when he waves them around.
He has the deepest eyes and a suspicious glare.
He hates baths and diaper changing, but will tolerate both after a good old feed.
He is such a good natured baby and only cries when hungry (though he gets hungry alot). Otherwise he lets just about anyone carry him and also sleeps through loud spanish conversations. As new parents, Jorge and I sleep reasonably good hours throughout the night!
The first night though, he kept crying and refusing to sleep in his mini crib. I was just about dying of exhaustion and somewhere between sleep and consciousness, my mind still hadnt registered that it was my baby making those ungodly noises and I almost chucked the crying little rugrat away.
Jorgito loves sleeping with us on the bed. He sleeps for 4 hours at a stretch when he’s with us, but only 2 hours max in his mini crib by himself. Once I woke up to his little paw tucked under me for warmth and I just melted.
His face is perfectly round and precious. When he is sleeping, he looks totally like me, but when he opens his eyes, there’s Jorge somewhere inside the mix.
We love seeing him hiccup and sneeze, which he did alot in the first 2 days of his little human life.
He looks best in blue and white colours. When he is in his pajamas and freshly bathed, snuggling him feels like the best thing since sliced bread!
WE LOVE YOU LITTLE JORGE <3 OUR WORLD HAS BECOME THAT MUCH MORE BEAUTIFUL, MAGNIFICENT AND AWE INSPIRING NOW THAT YOU ARE IN IT!
