where has the time gone?

so technically, i'm a little late in starting this blog, as my 'new arrival' is already 5 weeks & 3 days old! (first thing i learned about babies? they make time fly!!) that said, i'm getting used to being perpetually behind with everything, so i suppose i may aswell start as i mean to go on!

anyway. there are two main reasons i want to blog about my baby:
1. therapy! :P - or to put it another way, it's a good way to babble about all my new mum discoveries, tribulations & delights without completely boring all my non-mummy friends to death! plus, hopefully it'll help make sure my brain doesn't completely melt into a gurgly-goo-goo mess!

2. motherhood is easily the biggest & scariest learning curve i've ever faced. don't get me wrong, i am absolutely loving it - but that's not to say that i haven't had (several) moments of complete despair where i've been convinced i'm the worst mum ever & i'm never going to get any good at it!!
all the helpful (yet often completely conflicting!!) advice you get from health visitors, midwives, doctors, strangers on the street, old ladies in the supermarket & well meaning friends & family can be utterly overwhelming and confusing.
if you make the mistake of reading every book you can lay your hands on (like i did!!), it can be even worse!
i'd never claim to be offering any sort of 'expert advice' (i'm very new to this remember!) - but so long as my little man is happy & healthy, i figure i'm doing a decent job - and if reading about my trial & error proceses helps someone even less further along even a tiny bit, or just makes them smile in a moment of despair, then that makes me happy :)

so that's the motivation for the blog.
i have no idea what i'll end up posting, because every day is completely unpredictable & totally different to the last.

but to be honest, i think that's part of the fun :)
