Just had to share. John now 3 weeks old and you can see that his eyes are becoming a lot more focused. Not entirely sure how much he can see now but he can recognise some people by sight inc 2 of his great grandads (which has meant they've not stopped beaming since!) and hes getting more and more control of his limbs. This morn he's been in a bit of a temper as he didn't sleep much in the night (very unusual) then the HV woke him up to weigh him (hes gained 14 oz in a week so impressed with my self as is EBF). Since then he's been in one, crying everytime thought I'd stopped paying attention (This is his latest trick and hoping it's a short lived one). Anyway I'd been bouncing him a bit to calm him and lifted him a little higher to get a better hold as arms were getting tired when suddenly he stopped. Thought great. Looked st his face, his eyes completely focused on me, bit of the grumpy cat expression going on, but we've learnt this is actually his concentrating face. all of a sudden he reaches one hand up and starts touching my face. Kept doing it and so started to chatter nonsense to him and he started to smile as he suddenly filled with excitement. Unfortunately excitement does mean he can't quite control his arms so well and there were one or two whacks rather than just gentle strokes but was just so amazing!!! even if did end because he decided to do a really big smelly poo in his nappy.... I'm going to be one of those mums who bores everyone with my son did this stories aren't I? x
