For over a week, we waited.
Keeping busy with shopping, gardening, walking (trying - in vain - to induce labour), adding extra jalepenos to every meal and settling into our new house.
Induction day loomed - and many of you were kind enough to share your reassuring stories with me regarding the unfamilar situation in which I found myself. (A few held back on your not-so-reassuring stories - kindly touching base afterwards!)
After arriving at a stretched-to-capacity hospital, induction was deferred until after lunch.
Lunch came, waters were broken, labour commenced.
Big sisters arrived in time for the weigh-in: a respectable 10lb 5.5oz, 59cm.
Biggest fish this family's ever landed for sure.
The next few days involved lots of big sister doting. And flowers.
The view's a little different now.
And then we're home.
Three weeks, on the big sister doting continues.
The sleep is possibly a little less broken (pregnancy and sleep is not a match made in heaven).
The time is flying.
The camera is clicking.
