Beau Samuel James ♥
Beau is an absolute dream, he is such a placid, content and peaceful little baby who likes nothing more than lying on my chest enjoying warm and loving snuggles. I seriously can't get enough of him, he's amazing. I'm absolutely loving these precious moments with him and am cherishing them as much as I possibly can. He is such a hungry boy and considering he weighs 9lbs 7oz it's not hard to see why! He is also 54 and a half centimeters long so he's also a tall boy.
I can't believe how much he looks like Tyler Lee, they really are a mirror image of each other at the baby stage, except for the fact that Beau's hair is a lot lighter - Tyler Lee's was very dark brown at birth, whereas Beau's is dirty blonde and oh so shiny, it's beautiful. He also has beautiful blue eyes and I suspect that they'll be the same dark blue colour of his brothers - we're a family of blue eyed people.
Beau was named by his big brother, who had been affectionately calling my bump 'Baby Beau' ever since we suggested a list of names to him, from that moment we knew that if we had a boy his name would be Beau and I think it suits his handsome self so well.
Beau is suffering with jaundice and we had an emotional few days in hospital where he was placed on a biliblanket for twelve hours to receive phototherapy treatment. We have to return to the hospital today to have his bilirubin levels rechecked and I'm hoping and praying that they'll have gone down even further. It's heartbreaking to see your poor little baby having to get blood taken - he's had blood taken from him about eight times since he was born and considering he's only four days old it's so hard to watch, even if I know it's for the greater good.
We are so unbelievably happy to finally have our beautiful little boy with us. Forty-one weeks of pregnancy was definitely a very long wait, but surprisingly he came very quickly in the end - just over an hour after we arrived at hospital, meaning no pain relief for me! Seeing him for the first time was such an emotional and joyous moment, I remember asking Jacek - "Is it a boy?" and was so delighted when he said yes. Those first few moments were so amazing and I'll never forget them.
We are now trying to settle into life as a family of four and Jacek and I are absolutely besotted with having two beautiful boys. Our days are now very busy, loud, chaotic, tiring and short, but oh my goodness are they wonderful!
Welcome to the world Beau, our precious little angel man. We love you oh so much ♥
