Where two next?

Antipodean travelogue through the eyes of two - one textile and one building lover. It'll be hard to differentiate the two!

Happy Birthday Rohan

Rohan was one week old a few days ago, and what a week it was! Day one was all about getting the little fella out of his mammy's tummy and adjusting to the emotions that such an experience brings. The day he was born there was 18 other babies born in the hospital the same day!

Day 2 & 3 he spent in hospital with Sharon. Dad came and visited often though!

Day 4 saw the family return home, this time though with Rohan on the outside!

Day 5 saw us bring Rohan back to the hospital for his heel prick test. (Also his grand aunt Carmel passed away. She was Sharon's godmother.)

Day 6 he got a visit from the district nurse and he went and got his BCG. He was very brave and didn't cry for very long.

Day 6/ 7 Sharon got an infection and the new family had to spend two days in the hospital. (more on that saga another time perhaps.) On this day Sharon's mam was also ill in A&E in a hospital in Dublin and her sister was in another hospital in Dublin.

All in all a huge rollercoaster ride of a first week for our new family and extended families.
