My entry into this world was a rather quick, albeit it noisy one. It was only 4.5 hours between the time I popped the ol’ cork on her until the time I was reefed from my home of 10 months.
I quite like it on the outside. Though the muffled noises I have become accustomed to are significantly louder now. One very familiar voice has turned out to be my brother, Darcy. He’s a loving fellow who constantly chants “I will look after him” and “may I touch him” it’s usually at this point I try and open my very weary eyes in time to see his large hand approaching my scalp. It normally starts as a nice pat, I let my guard down and then his grip swiftly turns into a vice-like clasp akin to those coin operated machines that has a crane and a claw for selecting unsuspecting toys. My brother’s head sometimes shakes with the sheer exertion he’s putting into his grip on my head. But thankfully Mumma and Dadda step in at this point. I’m sure he doesn’t mean to hurt me, he just doesn’t know his own strength. He also enjoys showing me his “ittle cars and trains”, usually these are shown at close range and often they perform burn outs on my rather delicate skin. I’m doing my best at becoming more robust and have already moved beyond my birth weight of 3270g to my current weight of 3320g. Not a bad accomplishment for one weeks drinking!
I enjoy a slumber of around two hours now and usually snore my head off. I thought Mumma would like this as I read her blogs from Darcy and she was paranoid about Sid taking him, now she knows I’m right there but she still took me on my first outing alone with her and Darcy to the midwife, which ended up with a trip to the the Children’s Hospital Emergency. Needless to say she was a crying mess and I’m not surprised when you see all the other poor sick kids whom have germs to share, why I myself drew the blanket up over my head to shield me. As it turned out I’m fine, in fact they insulted me and said I had an immature respiratory system, pfft.
Given I’m the second child and my brother’s blog finished rather abruptly, I have no grand expectations for more updates. So I bid you farewell.
