The Ultimate MiH {Cuteness Alert}

Monday, 17 December 2012

So you may have noticed a serious lack of blogging last week. Believe me I tried from my blackberry, but I could not do it. So without further ado let me introduce to Luc Raphael, who will forever be known as Baby MiH! 

He was born on Friday, a skinny lanky little man (yep, a mini version of Mr MiH) - but an absolutely cutie pie. We finally came home last night, after leaving on Wednesday morning for the hospital. And he is settling down slowly in his Made in Home world. 



Not point in reliving it, but we had a bit of nightmare, and I can now lead any ante-natal class in Britain discussing different kinds of induction, pain relief, delivery methods, breathing methods etc. I have done it all in the space of three days. I personally don't think I will ever forget, and all I can say is that I am grateful for medical advances and epidural. 

So now, I have the cutest model in my house, blogging and making in home can resume! Also I have received some lovely emails from people whilst at the hospital, thank you so much for your support, I did not think I was going to be able to do it, but I did!

Added later..
On another note, LynCC won the 3 Christmas balls! It is on your way now that we are back home!

  23. I have been thinking about you off and on for the past week wondering if Baby MiH was here yet. I haven't had blog time so I didn't know and I get on today to see this post! Luc is so stinking cute and he looks right at home in his Moses basket and blanket. :) Congratulations and please give that sweet boy a hug for me because he's so cute I just want to reach through the internet and kiss those sweet cheeks!

  26. Felicitations il est absolument adorable! Desolee de lire que l'accouchement a ete plutot cauchemar, je pense qu'avec le temps, on oublie un peu et on ne garde que les bons souvenirs (sinon personne n'aurait plus d'un enfant!) Longue vie pleine de bonheur a Luc et felicitations aux heureux parents... Ma derniere puce aura un an dans quelques jours (25!), ca grandit si vite ces petits, profitez bien de tous les moments precieux.

  28. Oh Nat, he's gorgeous!!! Congratulations! I've been thinking about you a lot recently as I realised that all had gone quiet and was keeping my fingers crossed that all went well.
    Enjoy your little man and make the most of all the snuggles and kisses that you can get- all too soon they turn round and say "not yet" when you ask for a kiss (like my just turned 2 year old!)
