The Bump Arrives!

We are cozy at home, now the four of us. Safiya is happy to announce that Zinadine arrived yesterday at 4:40am after a rather intense and dramatic 5 hour labour. He's tired now, and is going to have a nap. And a feed. And a nap. And a feed.....nap, feed, nap, feed. It's a hard life, being just over a day old :-)

Hi Marnie

We've just got back from a one month stint in Europe, so I checked your blog to see if the little one got here safe and sound... and yeah!.. he did...

Congratulations to you and yours on your beautiful son.

Hugs to y'all too... let me know if you'd like to have a playdate with Huxley and Safiya some time this summer.
