Henry is 7 weeks old now and has been practicing his head control
whilst looking at the shiny surface of our sofa. He actually
likes to be on his front which I never experienced with Freddy.
In fact Freddy detested being on his front, back, side or bottom:
being on his feet was all he cared about.
Henry is turning out to be an incredibly fascinating baby, the
kind that you can read about in the text books. If they say he
should sleep for 3 hours then he sleeps for 3 hours and he is
managing a good 5-6 hour stretch at night which I find incredible.
Anyone who knows me will know that I would consider getting up 4
times in the night like an easy night (based on Freddy's sleep pattern) so imagine my surprise when I
discover that it is actually possible to have a newborn and get some
sleep. I hope I don't come across as if I'm bragging,
it's just that we had more than a year of less than 4 hours sleep in
total each night so as a family we have never felt so rested.
