Peanut Has Arrived

Our little boy has entered this world and we are adjusting to the roles of new parents.

Let me introduce Kingsley
Just born with Daddy

6 Hours after delivery

In the end it all happened naturally.  I was booked in to be induced on Sunday morning but on Saturday morning I woke up at 5 am already in labour.  Of course it was the day Hubby had gone to work at 4am to do a special extra shift that he only has to do every 3 months.  So I sent him a message to let him know things were happening and to get ready to come home since he was an hour away. Thankfully he was nearly finished doing the big important jobs and was home by 7am and after a quick shower we went straight to the hospital.
By the time we arrived at the hospital things were well and truely moving along.  I was able to have the natural birth that I wanted without intervention or drugs other than the gas which is exactly what I had planned and at 1.27pm Kingsley arrived into this world.
We were both well enough to be discharged by 2pm the next day which was wonderful as my Mum was arriving from New Zealand later that afternoon so we have been well supported in our recovery at home for the last few days.
So far feeding is going well and sleep well it is what it is for all new parents and with mum and Hubby's support I am getting enough.

Next Sunday we move out of our house and on Mon - Wed the movers will be here packing up all of our things to send to New Zealand.
So with all that we have going on I will be a bit absent from this space for a little bit but once we are settled in a few weeks I will be back and there might even be some more photos in the mean time.


  1. Oh Fiona! How wonderful! Congratulations to your family.

  2. Excellent news and perfectly timed but what else would expect of a child with such orderly and planned parents! I think he will be a chip off the old block. I'm sure everything will transition for you perfectly over the next few weeks. Congratulations and bon voyage I guess

  8. Awwwww, how cute is Kingsley? Seeing him, suddenly made me recall my last one's, "baby smell". I can't explain it but they just smell like newborn baby. There's no other smell like it. Enjoy all the cuddles.
