hello again cyber friends. sorry i have been silent for so long. we've been busy...having a baby! and here he is, wee baby j a-bundled in a blankie. he was born five weeks early thereby scuppering our plans for a repeat of the lush home-birth experience we had with o-o. wee j chose instead to make his entrance in dramatic fashion, into my trousers in the hospital corridor between maternity triage and delivery suite. he weighed 2.95kg (6lbs 8oz in old money). he has been drinking from the bo ever since and piling on the ounces. we are all delighted with him and o-o is a very proud big brother.
