First Footage

Thank you all for your kind wishes below...All three of us have managed to get some sleep. Nikki's just gone for a little walk and I'm testing my swaddling skills. So far he keeps managing to wriggle his hands free, so I've given up for a bit while he dozes.

Here are some edited highlights.

And yes bruv, I think you might have to get the beers in on both his 18th and his 21st.

Like father like son then

Jen said...

He sure sleeps a lot.

I was thinking some bodily skillz were taken from his dad while his cute in da face took after his mom.

Love it! Send more!

Hey bruv, hope this goes, Katie hated been swaddled, had to give up in the end and put mitts on, bearing in mind she was born in the coldest month. Love the pics and video, keep them coming. Pass my love to Nikki and give my beautiful nephew a big kiss from Andy, me and Katie. Love you all. Christine

Mum: Don't worry, you know me and my gadgets. There'll be plenty of photos and videos in the days to come. Being the nerd I am I actually took 3 cameras into the room in case I had problems with two of them and needed backups.

Laura: Mmm, do we need to warn Mike...?

Vikki: I hope you've discussed this with Iain

Anon: Yeah, mine are cute little bottom burps too.

Jen: The room's quite dark at the moment, so I haven't taken any for a while. I'll get some more up tomorrow probably

Sis: The nurse just stood with me and corrected my technique, so I'm good to go. He seems to like it so far, it shut him right up earlier and he slept in my arms for almost two hours.

Alli: Couldn't have put it better myself.

That will not be a problem, though after my 'three' birthday beers last night it might take that long for me to be ready to have another!

He looks proper swaddled to me but then I'm hardly an expert.

More, more!!

Ian said...

Well done on your 'three' birthday beers. Admirable 'forced' 'restraint'.

He's off getting poked and prodded by doctors again, I'll get cracking with the camera as soon as he comes back.

Vikki said...

Can we see a photo of Alasdair with his head uncovered please? Iain and I have been speculating about his hair colour.
PS It was Iain's idea to have a fourth baby. He's on a roll now! Our new car seats seven...

Ian said...

Well, as long as you've got room in the new car, you might as well go for it :-)

Let me check the photos I've taken to see if any have his beanie off...I think there are a couple where it's mostly off.

Extremely impressive swaddling skills
