The Wriggler has landed

Introducing Lloyd, who arrived at 2:33am on Monday 9 June 2008.

He is 3.7 kilos, or 8 pounds 4 in the old system, and is 52cm long. When he was being born it was a little like the cheesey old magician trick of pulling the endlessly knotted silk scarves out of a pocket. He just seemed to go on and on and on. How could a half metre long baby be inside me? Still, it does explain the indigestion.

We are now settling into being at home and having the world revolve around Lloyd, rather than Squeak, who seems to be taking it all in her stride.

so wonderful to see Lloyd. He's lovely. And you look in that second photo so content and wrapped up in him. Beautiful. Welcome to the world Lloyd!

Yay! Congratulations - I thought the blog silence must have been for a good reason!! These are great photos - you look so very natural together.

Welcome, baby Lloyd! So glad you both - and papa, too - are all doing well, Pru. *Scritches* to Squeak, so she doesn't get jealous.

And thanks for letting us know the news; I've been thinking about you, blogfriend.
