… a beautiful baby boy. Our beloved son Euan.
Born the day after my last blog post (written to distract me from the contractions that had started a few hours before) I wonder now how no-one guessed I was carrying such a whopper inside that enormous bump. 10lb 2oz of whopping great loveliness. The extra 12 days cooking time Euan had served him well in recovering from the difficulties of his delivery and right from day one he’s seemed more like the age he would have been if he’d been born on his due date. It’s brilliant for us as it means our 3 week old bundle of joy is really alert and has been giving us lots of smiles and makes hilarious squeaks, coos and grunts to let us know what he needs.
