Paternity leave

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

Cillian's 24 hours (Jan 26)I have been at home most of this week, using the last of my 10 days of paternity leave. I was in work on Monday, and got some bits and bobs done, and then when my mum went home on Tuesday, I stayed here. The new timetable is odd… everything is shifted about 2 hours forward. So I tend to go to bed about about 01h30 now, having got le petit mec to sleep. Whether or not my night’s sleep is broken, I get up at about 09h, which gives me time for burping (him, not me).

Cillian generally has a feed at about then, so we’re all up. When I am dealing with him, or coaxing him into sleep, K can get some more rest.

Two hours sleep last night, and then out at 4am, to take papito and mamita to the railway station. *yawn* Still, I was able to enjoy Chopin’s Balade #1 on the radio, while I was stuck behind a milk float in Saffron Walden. One to download from the iTunes store, I think.

Cillian had just fed and was sleeping when I got back, so I was able to grab another couple of hours’ sleep, happily. (more…)

Merci à tous pour les emails, les commentaires sur le blog, et pour vos voeux. C'est très excitant en plus que je peux partager tous nos nouvelles avec nos ami et famille!

(OK, I know that only aikido people are likely to understand the title of this post…) Young Cillian has a good appetite, after his exciting introduction to the world so Karyn isn’t getting very much sleep, because he is pretty hungry. Luckily, dad (that’s me) is having lots of success (so far!) getting him to sleep, so that everyone can get some rest. (more…)
