And then there were five

We had a baby!

After a ridiculous week of will-it-be-today-no-not-today; and perfectly timed with an unprecedented snowfall that closed schools for a week leaving us somewhat housebound…

But was quite undeniably beautiful.

At the end of the week, and with a labour long enough that I started to feel semi-apologetic for taking up everyone’s time… at the end, he arrived:

First day and every day since, deliriously smelling his head

Cannot. Stop. Taking. Photos.

The siblings meet

One week old today.

He’s lovely! And finally has a name – Hugo, although Mim (4) and Wilf (2) have been convinced by a week of namelessness that his real title is just “new baby” or “baby brother” so, depends who you ask.

More soon! When some kind of normal routine takes shape (will that happen?! I can only hope).
