Our son was born at 4:45am on Saturday 19th January, weighing 7lb 14oz and was 54cm long. I blogged here that I hoped he might be born on what would have been his Great Nan's 100th birthday....and he was! I ended up having a c-section unfortunately. I was induced the day before, but the labour didn't quite go to plan. I'll blog Rory's birth story when I feel a bit more up to it. We are still in hospital and don't know when we'll be going home yet. I'm in no hurry. It's nice here. The midwives are great and very supportive (not a single dragon among them) which I'm thankful to God for. Duncan is a very proud and helpful daddy.
Rory has two middle names which I won't put on here due to privacy. One is a name we liked, but it didn't go well enough with our surname to be considered for a first name. The other is after Duncan's late brother who passed away in 1999.
The past few days have been joyful, bewildering, stressful, tiring, and filled with lots of cuddles and love. The little man is a bit cute. I love him!
