March 3rd, 2012…
What a day for us! Today, at 151pm, our son was born! He swam into the water and into my hands after a fairly fast, intense and wonderful labour and birth. I will write his birth story at some point and post it 🙂
My pics from today are fairly cr*p, but that’s ok, because the memories are not! If you want to see two very beautiful pics, check out the two on Gregarious Peach’s Facebook page… or my FB page.
My darling girl, I can’t quite believe you are a big sister! You seem so big compared to Oscar, but still so little too. You were such a good little girl today, you knew something was going on… Mumma was behaving a bit strangely at times! I couldn’t go into labour properly until I knew you were safe with your Aunty Cherie on your way to Dondy and PaRoy’s house. I had to know my baby girl was safe. Once you were with them labour kicked in!!!
After your brother arrived at the RBWH Birth Centre, Dondy and PaRoy brought you up to see us and to meet him. I was so happy to see you, so happy. Here you are on the bed with Mummy…. Oscar was having susu and you thought your new dolly might need some too. You amused us by stripping your doll’s clothes off and announcing “Its got bits!!”
My heart broke a little when you went home without us, but I knew you were safe and loved on your sleepover at your Grandies house.
I love you my little big baby girl, more than ever xxx
Little man… Little Oscar Gregg… you’re here!! You are earthside and it is so beautiful to hold and to kiss you. This is one of our first pics with you. Such a blessing to have you on my chest. Look at your gorgeous little rosebud mouth 🙂 And look at your proud Dadda!
It was a big day for us all… you played your part in your birth perfectly, helping your Mumma to birth you as gently as possible. Thank you, beautiful boy, thank you. xxx
