Life of a Prem Baby Blog

Archive for June 2011

I have made another lovely handmade bracelet this week, check out the pic and let me know what you think!


Today heralds another trip to the hospital for Jenson, and I have my fingers crossed that the doctors will give us good news that Jenson is developing well and that the 8 weeks prematurity has not affected him in anyway.

Im also hoping to get some advice on the shape of his head today, as although over the last few months there has been a slight improvement, you can still see that the shape of his skull is flat. Thankfully Jenson has been blessed with a whole head of hair which makes it less obvious. Other people say Im worrying over nothing, I guess I just want a consultant at the hospital to tell me that his head will eventually right itself.

Im really hoping the doctors are pleased with this progress and development, being 8 weeks prematurity is such a huge gap in development terms, especially when Jenson starts school.

Lets hope for good news today 🙂 I have attached another pic for my readers of Jenson, over the last couple of weeks he has finally learnt to crawl! I will update my blog tomorrow with the results of our hospital visit.

So today I have a job interview, scheduled for 11:00am and wow has it been like a military operation this morning!

In order for me to get everything ready on time, Ive had to get up before 7:00am (some of you may think this is pretty late considering Jenson is only 10 months old, but we are very lucky that Jenson likes his sleep and will sleep in till about 8:30am every day, bliss!), so Ive had to make sure I get myself dressed, that Ive had my breakfast and that the car is all loaded up with Jensons things (which ends up filling the whole boot!) and all this before 8:00am!

Jenson is now fed and watered and is taking a quick nap before we have to leave for Nanny’s in about half an hour, then once there I can relax for a bit and prep myself for the interview.

Who ever said parenting was easy?!

Yesterday Jenson turned 10 months old and it made me realise just how quick those last 10 months have gone, and just how much Jenson has changed. Me and my husband are already planning Jensons birthday party but both of us cant believe how lucky we are to have Jenson here at all.

Over the last few weeks Ive found myself looking back on the photos of when Jenson was first born, and realising just how tiny he was and how far he has come since the 6th August. Ive also found myself thinking about friends that are currently expecting babies and as they go past 31 weeks+6 days without any hiccups I still wonder why I was unfortunate to go into premature labour? A question I guess I will never have answered.

To this day I still think some people dont realise just how touch and go it was when Jenson was born, and to be honest at the time I dont think neither me or my husband fully understood how critical Jenson was.
In the last 10 months Jenson has gone from the tiniest thing in the world to a little boy that likes to climb over everything, grab eveything he isnt supposed to have and throwing the mother of all temper tantrums when he gets told off!

But I wouldnt change him for the world and I cant wait to celebrate his 1st birthday and tell everyone how proud of my little boy I am 🙂
