The rest of last week

Last Tuesday, Ezekiel and I went to the breastfeeding group.  As it's for mums with babies up to 4 months now we probably won't be able to go again before Ezekiel is too old.  Still, it was nice to have a chat to other mums with babies the same age as Ezekiel.

Wednesday was my day off!  Well, a day off from appointments anyway.  I spent a big part of the day sorting out the outgrown clothes and putting them in labelled boxes to go up in the loft.

Thursday was mine and Ezekiel's 6 week check.  All fine except my blood pressure was a bit high.  I was holding a screaming Ezekiel at the time and willing the appointment to be finished so I could go and feed him so that's probably why. 

Friday was physio.  Ezekiel has low muscle tone in his arms and core and high muscle tone in his legs.  We have some exercises to do with him and we see her again in 2 weeks.

Jeremiah and Isaac finished school on Monday.  The health visitor came to weigh Ezekiel on Monday and she is so pleased with his weight gain we only have to get him weighed once a week now.  This week has mostly been taken up by feeding, pumping, housework and various activities at home.  I haven't attempted to take all 4 of them out on my own yet.  Tomorrow we will be picking up the big car from the Vauxhall garage.
