Who knew such a little human being could be so demanding? They’re cute and adorable, but when a baby wants something, they want it now! I’ve learnt the past 3 and a half months that I most definitely come second to Oliver. It’s always baby 1st and mummy 2nd.
My day consists of feeding, nappy changes, nap times and demanded attention. It can be tiring and exhausting, and sometimes I wonder whether I’ll be able to do this all again when I have a second child (Saying this though, it won’t stop me!). Until the point that my husband gets home from work, it’s just me running after Oliver.
Oliver get hungry when I’m hungry, wants attention when I need to pee and is wide awake when I want to sleep. On the worst days I barely have time to eat, I can’t go to the loo in peace and catching some Z’s is a no-no! Oliver loves his attention, and if he’s not getting it, he moans. There’s only so much energy in me to play peek-a-boo, chase after him when he goes on a rolling adventure and to try and keep him still whilst his wiggly butt is sat on my lap. When my husband gets home I tap him in, but usually Oliver is in a better mood of an evening – How typical!
But even after all of this, I would not have it any other way. This little person means everything to me, and I would do anything for him to make sure he’s okay. I might struggle some days and my husband will come home to me in tears, but I will always make sure Oliver is put first, even if I haven’t eaten all day (today being one of those days!).
I am so grateful having this little cutie in my life. He can be a pain in the butt but he’s my pain in the butt who I love dearly.
