I’m so thrilled to share the news that baby Willow Patrice Robinson has arrived! Patrice (for those of you who follow this blog) was my mums name, who passed away suddenly last April. It is also my middle name.
Willow arrived on the 8th July at 2.25am after a relatively quick labour. 7 lbs. 7 oz., she is STUNNING and I’ve barely been able to tear my eyes off her for the last week. Unlike our little bald Holly (well, she had a ring like friar tuck around the edges), Willow has a full crop of dark hair and seems to take more after me (YES!) in appearance. Holly is most certainly Daddy’s little mini me, so it’s nice to have one for me too :-P
Holly has had a big week, both with the arrival of Willow, a Wiggles concert last Monday (thanks to her aunty paying for her to go) and also her first ear infection. Doctor prescribed antibiotics which one minute she will happily take and then the next time a dose is due she will refuse point blank and we end up forcing it in!! Fun times. She is realising that this little thing that pretty much just sleeps (when it’s not attached to mums boob) is here to stay and she has started to take more of an interest. I have to admit I’ve had a few teary moments where I miss Holly, I’m so used to spending all my time with her for the last 20 months so not being able to is an adjustment for me too. Luckily daddy is home at the moment (two weeks off) so he has been able to pick up the slack and play with her. Not sure how I will cope when he goes back to work next week but I’m sure I will as many others do! Ok, Willow is stirring so I had better go. Will touch base again soon xxx
