Elizabeth is smiling more and more now. It's hard to catch it on camera though! She was weighed again on the 8th, and is now 10lb 5oz. Not much of a gain in the last week.

05/06/2006 - My first feed!

Clare expressed some milk, and I fed Elizabeth for the first time. We were both a bit worried about how it would go, but we needn't have been! She drained the bottle in no time, and another one after that too.

She can hold her head up most of the time now. Still flops after a while though.

This was the start of our first real trip out of the house. A whole weekend spent in Wales at Clare's parent's house.

28/05/2006 - On her front

We try and put Elizabeth on her front to play for a bit a couple of times a day, just so she isn't on her back all the time!

23/05/2006 - hello!

Elizabeth was weighed again on the 25th, and she is now 9lb 9.5oz. Still gaining about an ounce a day.

Complete with shoes for the first time! They didn't stay on long...

21/05/2006 - Cuddle and dry

Doesn't she look cosy?

20/05/2006 - On the shoulder

Elizabeth is spending more and more time up on our shoulders, with us doing our best to get her to burp!

19/05/2006 - Tired dad

I need to catch up on some sleep this weekend!

The health visitor visited again yesterday, and Elizabeth is now 9lbs 2oz. Still gaining at a healthy rate. Elizabeth is 6 weeks old tomorrow, but we have met a few women whose babies were born at this kind of weight. I think Clare is very glad that Elizabeth wasn't!

12/05/2006 - Sicky baby

Photo for Journal Entry

Elizabeth has developed in to a very sicky baby! We now have her in a bib most of the time, and we get through a huge amount of muslin cloths. She still sleeps OK though, and is gaining weight rapidly, so it isn't too much of a problem!

12/05/2006 - At the Registrars
