My waters broke on Saturday night, 11:45, and after a very painful (although thankfully quick) labour she was with us by the morning. For some reason I was convinced I was having a boy, so it was quite a surprise to be told she was a girl, but a lovely one. We feel very blessed to be able to bring up a boy and a girl. She reminds me a lot of Peter when he was born, except for her dark hair. The first few days she was very chilled out and thankfully started feeding well.
We couldn’t wait to take her home and introduce her to her big brother and make her part of the family. How strange to be going back to sleepless nights and countless nappies again but so so worth it!
