Home Again

Thank you all so so much from the heart for the lovely comments and wishes left here. I'm so pleased to get back to my own sweet bed words can't describe the joy!!

Esme's birth and the news on the day that our other daughter is finally legally adopted makes this the best week of my life, if not the hardest! I feel so blessed.

Esme's traumatic entry into the world couldn't have been avoided as the cord was wrapped around her neck.

Baby Esme (or Emsie as her sister calls her) is doing well now as am I. It'll be a long recovery but well worth it.

My only disappointment of the past few days has been battling unsuccessfully to get breast feeds going. Due to the extent of blood lost I've had to admit defeat but the medical staff said it was a valiant effort.

Tonight we're pleased to be settled and home. With so many lovely friends.


P.S. So much for having a June baby - check out the 'coming home' Eskimo suit required to brave the weather!!

She's absolutely beautiful. Congratulations on both your gorgeous daughters. Rest as much as you can and remember chocolate is very rich in iron lol.

Ooooo... (slapping hands over mouth to refrain from bubbling over with baby chatter at Esme...)...

What a beautiful baby, Judy. And congratulations to your older daughter's adoption being finalized.
