Harper is 3 weeks and 4 days old now and so far, although life is really hectic, we are settling in well to this new family arrangement.
Noah has taken to his big brother role better than we could ever have imagined. He is so patient and wonderful with me even though I am constantly unable to be there for him like I used to be. He is beyond smitten with Harper and is never far from him with oh so gentle kisses and cuddles. He wants to help in every aspect of Harper's care and is actually a very capable and useful extra set of hands.
As far as Harper goes we had a little hiccup when he was re-admitted to the hospital 4 days after coming home but now he is gaining weight beautifully and is a nice and healthy 3.5 kilos. Unfortunately breastfeeding is proving a challenge again and so I have had to concede to formula top-ups to keep this tiny boy of ours on the right track. Hopefully with the help of the lactation consultant we will get to 100% breastfeeding eventually.
Here are some more pictures of our beautiful boys
