As those who read the all over the place postings that I make on this blog of mine will be aware that the Kid, William Alun Baiton (AKA Will) was born this past Friday at 07.35. We are blessed to have Will healthy and with all the necessary vital parts in the places they are meant to be.
The first couple of days through to Sunday were tiring as I was sleeping on the floor of the hospital. However, we were only getting hour long sessions or so with Will at certain times of the day.
We, as a happy family, were able to head home on Sunday and so we did. Some of you have been gracious in your comments in welcoming us to the "no sleep zone", thanks!
Hopefully, we can get Will's sleep clock in sync with ours and that this will happen sooner rather than later. The little fella is a pretty good sleeper during the day. He comes into his own in the wee hours (I now know why it is called the wee hours) and is a voracious drinker / feeder of the good stuff! I have know sleep deprivation in the past but not like this.
Since moving to Indonesia I have become a solid sleeper in terms of being able to sleep through just about anything and any circumstances. However, this has meant that I am sleeping a lot lighter than I usually allow myself as I am sleeping with a view to hearing even the slightest murmur out of Will.
Nevertheless, when all things are considered, I would have it no other way! I am loving the being a father thing and I am looking forward to the challenges ahead.
The fun and games have begun.
I will post more pictures later!
