Life and recovery after a cesarean birth!

Well, it's all change in my household! Joshua Sebastian Woodling was born on the 20th January 2014 at 9.24am by c-section.

The operation itself was actually quite relaxing and I was surprised how calm I felt during the whole process. Unfortunately, after a c-section you literally can't move for a few days which is super frustrating. You have to rely on other people to take care of your baby and make sure you rest for plenty of days. Not easy with a newborn!

The first two weeks have been challenging. He's been a really good baby but I've struggled with the recovery and then my husband caught a cold, then I caught the cold and now to top it all off we've been told that we have to move out of our rented house before the 31st of March!!!

Terrible timing so there have been a lot of tears. We have come to the difficult decision that we will need to re-home our two cats  - there aren't many properties that will let you have pets and one of our cats is very unpredictable around Joshua.

So, times are changing for us. I've got to go bath him now so I'll leave you with a few pictures.

Our first photo together - my little penguin!

All his clothes are too big as he is so little!

It may look like Grandma is strangling him but actually he was very content!
