Parenting, Pregnancy

A new arrival!!!

On Thursday morning I sat down and wrote my 40 week pregnancy update to publish on Friday once I'd seen the midwife, thinking that baby wasn't ready to show his face! Our little man had other ideas though and decided that he wanted to be bang on time and I went into labour on Thursday afternoon – my due date!! Yep – I am now a member of the 6% due date baby club!!!

I would proudly like to introduce Oscar who arrived very quickly at 22.39 on 15th September weighing 7lbs 10oz. We are all absolutely besotted with him. 

I'll be writing lots more about him, including my birth story but for now I'm just settling in back at home and getting used to being a family of four! Here's a few photos for you!!!
