My son made his grand appearance at 4 am on 26 November weighing 2.86 kg. He is perfect.

Labour was the hardest thing I’ve ever done (at some point I’ll tell that story) followed by breastfeeding. When I first set sight on my son, my first words were: “he’s so gray”. Then he let out an almighty yell and turned pink. The next thing I said to V was: “Oh no, he’s got your family nose!” and then: “oh yay, it’s your nose!”

Then they place him on my chest and I was in love.
