...and it was all yellow

You'll have guessed that the reason I've not posted for while is because I've given birth. And you'd be right. AND THANK GOODNESS FOR THAT!!!!!!!!!!!

We gave birth one week
early, 48hrs after getting a stretch and sweep which I'm sure that did the trick. I'm SO glad I went into labour when I did though as it felt like 9 years being pregnant, not 9 months! So, I'd like to introduce our (nearly ginger) daughter, Harriet Abigail. Born 18th September 2009 weighing 7lbs 10ozs. I say nearly ginger as her hair did look a bit red...nothing wrong with that...I don't want to start a ginger whinging incident. 4 weeks on and she's more of a conker colour. Bless!

Jer did his usual Quentin Tarantino impression and filmed during the birth, although there isn't as much footage as there was with Drew. Firstly, because the whole process only took 5 hours and secondly, because I thought I was going to die as the pain was so unbearable and Jer had to hold me up for quite a few hours. Something he moaned about afterwards as he got a bit of backache!!!! Grrrr!!!

So, YES - there will be a short edited movie uploaded shortly. Keep watching this space!! It's amazing how quickly you slip back into the newborn baby routine, but we forgot ALL about winding and burping a baby...cor! It takes ages!

Drew has taken to her baby sister remarkably well and with a few minor tantrums right at the start, she loves to help us change Harriet's nappy and rock her moses basket. Even if it is at warp-speed! In this period of new beginnings, Drew has been grasping onto new words - colours, numbers, animals, sounds etc. and the word of the moment is 'yellow'. This also happens to be the exact same colour of Harriet's nappy contents. Nice.
