I have a baby!



So after 300 hours of pushing, my little Isabel Florence was born on 27th August! No time for blogging as I am now a walking milk bar. Baby is an absolute stunner, obviously incredibly intelligent and alert as well as utterly beautiful (although that's not what I'd tell you at 4am in the middle of a five hour screaming session or when she's just done such a mega-galatic poo that it's all over my lap...). Will eventually write more about such subjects as the joys of labour, health checks and the many fascinating varieties of baby poo.

Congratulations, Mel! I hope you do get back to blogging (even if it is baby related) as I love your voice. All the best, Louise

300 hours?! or maybe 30?

Congrats!

Thank you!
Actually, the 300 hours bit was just a little hyperbole...
In reality, if you don't count the 3 days of contractions before we finally went to hospital it was more like 20 hours - doesn't sound much but felt like FOREVER! x
