It's a boy!


I am so pleased to introduce you to my brand new little fellow... 
baby Ashley!

This dear little boy arrived exactly 1 week early at 3.18pm on Monday 25 March weighing 3.12kg (6.9 pounds), 49 cm long and perfect in every way!!  You can see more piccies on Instagram or Facebook : )

My waters broke in the early hours of Sunday (the night I took these pics!!) and then labour kicked in about midday on Sunday.  It all went as smoothly as I could've hoped for with a fantastic midwife and obstetrician. I then had 4 wonderful nights in hospital falling head over heels for my little lamb.  If you had ever told me I would be content to be confined to a single room with a newborn for that long I would've thought you crazy, but it really was the best and there was nowhere in the world I would've rather have been.  My husband was able to stay overnight as well, and with lovely meals delivered and helpful midwives it was a great introduction to motherhood.

Today, 5 April, also marks my husband and my 10th wedding anniversary! I can't believe how time flies, it's been a fabulous 10 years and now there are three of us I've no doubt there will be many more fabulous years to come.  Anyways, I'll share some more on that, and perhaps some wedding piccies another day : )
