Baby Milo....the early days

So after a long time of trying and waiting....and some more waiting Milo finally arrived! he was born on the 15/11 at 3.47pm and weighed 6 pounds 14. So far it's been a crazy roller coaster of emotions....elation, relief that Khila was ok after the operation and just being overwhelmed!!! I though I knew what was in store and what to expect but it didn't come close.

so far he's been a really good boy, he sleeps lots and is very quiet!..he's so still in his little carry cot! I had most of last week off which was nice to be able to be at the hospital with Khila and Milo and help out after he was born.

milo's grandma Jane has helped us all out a lot!..she's pretty much a saint! and is obsessed with lil Milo or m-dog as he's affectionately known in our house! he's lucky to have a big sis who loves him! (very enthusiastic), he's came to sunday lunch at grandma Jane's and spent a long time on his granddads knee, and more importantly met Spike and Remy ( the dogs) and all went smoothly! phew.

As of right now it's a blur of bottle sterilising and teeny clothes, for lil Milo, he's insanely cute and he's definitely going to be a character! we're just happy to have him in our lives.

Khila has uploaded Milo's nursery tour today so you can find that here..

I think we have everything now. She keeps coming up with more stuff we need, I'm sure we don't.. Do we really need a bath thermometer? Really? What's wrong with my elbow?

What I'm Taking To Hospital

You may already know via Khila's blog that the C-Section is booked for 15/11 (just 18 days from now) There are still lots of things we have to organise, one of those is what we're taking to hospital. She's made her lists and I've been instructed to make mine.

Things that I plan to take to hospital:

  • Comfy clothes
  • A pillow + Blanket
  • The Macbook
  • Iphone and charger
  • Snacks (Pringles etc)
  • Towel
  • Toothbrush and toiletries etc
  • Possibly Red Bull
  • Camera, and charger
  • Extra batteries
  • DVD'S
  • Magazine / Book

Am I missing anything? I've never done this before.

You all probably know Ella already, she's quite the youtube star and budding personality. Anyhoo back to the main reason of my post.......step parenting!. Firstly i can tell you it's not easy and to be honest i didn't ever expect it to be. One of the reasons is what role do you actually play in your step childs life? how are you supposed to discipline or lay ground rules for a child who already has a mum and dad to do that?. And also in our situation the impending arrival of baby Zach and will that affect our group dynamic...? Firstly what role..this is tricky as Ella has her parents already and has equal time with both so my role is more one of her friend but always encourge her to be doing the right things, and kinda take a back seat if im honest as there is already a parenting team in place. I know this is going to be so much more difficult when the baby comes and i'll be responsible for him...i'm hoping its a smooth transition!eek. Fortunately we have been really lucky so far and Ella is a generally well behaved kid who's very intelligent and we get on well and have a good relationship, infact she often gets up early to watch UFC on weekends while we leave mummy to have a lie in!lol. I'm no expert on step parenting by any means but in conclusion, it can sometimes be hard but more than worth it..
