news - first month
Mon 10th June 2002, 1:45pm
It doesn't really seem like a month; either no time at all
has passed since she arrived, or it's already been a lifetime.
A new set of photos are up
mainly covering some the visits and visitors that Isabellle
has had in the last couple of weeks. She's feeding well,
but only sleeping okay on some nights. There are definite smiles
now, and when she's awake she is very alert.

We're now all back from a week spent at Caroline's parent's
house in Birmingham. Lots of travelling and meeting new
people (and a few new toys), but not too much sleep at
night. Last night we got back around 11:30pm, and it then
took about 3 hours for her to feed, play, be changed and
finally feed some more before she fell asleep - but then
made up for it by sleeping for about 7 hours. Very useful
for recharging exhausted parents. The midwife made her
final visit this morning and discharged us; we're now in
the hands of the health visitor. Her weight at 4 weeks
now is 4.27kg, or 9lb 6oz - have a look at her
weight gain chart

We now have the third set of photos up
cover Isabelle settling in at home, a few more visitors
and some of the flowers and cards that she's been sent.

The webcam history is now working, with a couple of
interesting sequences. We've also started a page of
sound recordings, which is here
Not much else to report; she's started to grow out of a
few of the smaller clothes she's got, and now has outfits
in two different rowing club colours - both presents from
people at those clubs (Kingston and Pembroke College).

Isabelle is doing well, and has managed to sleep around
5 or 6 hours the last two nights. It probably won't
last, but at least we're managing to keep up with
the sleep. She's feeding quite well in general, and
was weighed on Monday and was 3.77kg (8-5). We had a
visit from the health visitor yesterday - mainly form
filling, but she seems very nice. We now have a webcam
, or alternatively a cot
cam. No guarantees whether it will be at all interesting,
since the she's only usually in her cot at night, and
it's dark then (and the computer isn't usually on...).
I'll probably do a past history of interesting pictures
at some point.
