To My Baby On Her Due Date

Dear Georgia,

Today, you are 23 days old. TWENTY THREE DAYS OLD. Over three weeks! Almost a month. Lordy, time is flying.


Today, you weighed in with the community health nurse. You went from 3.45kg to 3.7kg in nine days - and you made me a very happy lady. Looks like our combination of breastfeeding & expressed top-ups is working. Huzzah! You also impressed our nurse, who couldn't get over how wide eyed and alert you were and how much strength you are already showing in your movements. So proud of you, our chunky little preemie bub. :)

Today, you went for your first walk in the pram, alongside Spencer - who was so very excited to have a new walking buddy. Going out for an afternoon lap around the block with you as part of our new little family was lovely.


Today, it's also your due date. We were pretty convinced that your date was as close to 'accurate' as it could be, thanks to the IVF procedure dates that helped us to conceive you. {I promise I won't talk about your conception too much in your lifetime - but just know that we are very, very grateful parents who are so lucky to have you.} In my mind, I didn't think you'd make us wait until April 22nd to meet you, but I also didn't expect you to come as early as you did. You obviously decided that the time was right, and we're so glad you're here.


We think you're pretty darned fabulous - and we will never take you for granted. Happy due date, baby girl.

Love,
Mama xx

I also wondered if she wasn't quite a preemie as y'all thought. But, either way, you have a happy, healthy baby!

There are a lot of cliches about babies and many of them exist purely because maybe 50% of the babies out there look somewhat like space aliens and yet you are supposed to say how beautiful they are or risk completely insulting the parents and/or the entire human race.

So let me just say this and you can know it is coming directly from my heart and I am keeping it real with you.

MOST.GORGEOUS.BABY.I.HAVE.SEEN.IN.YEARS.

I can't imagine you are getting any decent sleep because if I had this baby, I would want to spend 24/7 staring at her. Those eyes! Those chubby little cheeks!

And the pose - it is like she has decided which is her good side and she is throwing in jazz hands as an added extra bonus.

I love that second pic, she really is speaking with her eyes there. I think she is saying "What the heck are you pointing at me!"

I really am so happy for you and yours. ;)

Thank you for taking us on this journey with you.
