5/52


a portrait of my children, once a week every week for 2013...

Olive Sylvia: you came into this world rather reluctantly but you are so peaceful and contented to be here, and we are all completely and utterly in love with you..

I've not managed any other photos this week.  Our boys are quite happy not to feature here today, they are quite smitten with this new little bundle, and my goodness she's so tiny! x

  2. My first grandchild arrived yesterday. A 7lb 14oz baby boy named William Endeavour Wood Hall with a crop of red hair. They live a long way from me so I hope to get photographs via email soon. Welcome to Olivia. Blessings to us all.

  11. Congratulations Mel (and Mr Mel!), Olive looks so sweet! It is a long time since I've seen a baby wearing a traditional nightgown like my babies wore. It looks so soft and cosy on her. I hope you're doing ok too, healthwise.

  31. Oh your baby arrived! I'm a bit late, I've been quietly reading along and then missed noticing her arrival. A perfect little girl for you - that will be a change after your boys. Enjoy and all the best. xx

  32. Oh my goodness!!! I've been feeling sorry for myself with flu so missed little Olives arrival!!! Congratulations! So happy for you and totally adorable name { my cat is called Olive, lets hope your little lady is much better behaved than mine!!!}.
    I hope you are managing to get some rest and relative calm at home! I was induced with both my babes, basically just because they were both lazy bones and I went to 42 weeks! I empathise with the emotions and anxiety induction creates. But as long as baby is born healthy then it doesn't matter how she got here!
    Much love to you and the family. My little bambino turned one a couple of weeks ago it really does zoom along quickly doesn't it? Enjoy your little bundle. xxx
