Things have been a little quiet around here lately but I have a great excuse … my little boy arrived! After 9 months of cooking up a good one he finally arrived on his due date a little over a week ago. Oscar decided to be punctual which I am so grateful for as I was really getting fed up.  The last 12 days have been a total whirlwind, it all feels like a dream that I am yet to awake from.

Oscar arrived on Thursday 31st July at 8.10am weighing 7lb 4oz.  After a fairly quick labour my little man braced us with his presence and our world changed forever!  No one can describe the overwhelming feeling of love that hits you like a lightening bolt the minute your baby is laid into your arms, it's just incredible.

We have been inundated with visitors since his arrival which has been overwhelming in itself.  As well as getting to know him and all his little squirms and cries, needs and wants the last 12 days have been nothing short of life changing and as we continue to learn how to be a good mummy and daddy each day just amazes us.

You just don't realise how demanding one little human can be, even when he is asleep we still need to attend to his needs, whether that be making up bottles, washing his clothes or just trying to organise the chaos that is the mountain of gifts we have received it's never ending but I wouldn't change it for the world.

Oscar's first 24 Hours!

Oscar has been in our lives for 12 days and already I can't imagine what life was like without him. Both my husband and I are totally smitten with him and we are so excited to watch Oscar grow up, although I hope he stays teeny tiny for a little while yet.
