He’s here!

Noah_feet1_500Welcome to the world, little beautiful baby Noah… I have no words to describe how amazing this little chap is, but I know they will come to me soon. Just need to get a good night's sleep, one of the major perks of being an auntie (you get to come home). But i miss him like crazy, and I miss his mummy even more. She endured a 26-hour labour and was so brave, so amazing, so primal warrior-woman. It was an honour to help bring him into this world; I will never forget how his face looked as he slipped from my sister into the waiting hands of the (lovely and sweet) doctor……
