Ginger arrived weighing 4.05 kilos, was 54cm long and (anyone who's given birth will wince) 38cm head circumference!
His eviction orders were well and truly served, twice.
The second time worked like a charm with the help of the drip, bought his speedy arrival, in a 3 hours and 20 minute labour, I was very pleased it was that short, because it certainly was painful to say the least.
We were home late afternoon on Thursday and we have been getting to know Ginger ever since.
Ben and I marvel at our beautiful creation. My heart breaks when I think about how much love I have for him.
He is a lovely baby, although he sleeps through the day and not the night, that's how he was in utero too so not much has changed. I'm sure you can see by the photos what cute & cubby cheeks he has! They are even better in person.
I'm doing really well, and feel great, I haven't been counting the weight but on the day of his birth, I lost 5 kilos! I was happy about that. I have decided at this stage not to share his name on the blog.
I'm going to take a month or two break from blogging although not sewing, and will be back with new dresses and tops.
There will be a frocktails update in meantime, which I will be then communicating via email, so if you have RSVP'd looked out for that. Remember I need your email address to contact you. :)
Thanks for reading.
