The (not so) secret diary of the tired Dad - the arrival


IMG_20200203_100515.jpg

DEAR DIARY
Day 1: Arrived in strange hospital at a stupid time of the morning, only to find that all the beds have been "fully booked!" Ushered into a side room, where a midwife greated us and told us that although we were first on the list of elective c-sections, they were a little bit busy at the moment, but we definitely would be meeting our little girl today.

Seconds turned to minutes and minutes turned in to hours..... OK, I'm slightly over exaggerating, but it did feel like we had been there for days before the consultant finally made his rounds. Introducing himself and confirming that we were next on the list. Met the anaesthetist and the team and were given the green light to "gown up"

Final checks -

Epidural ✔️
Sharp knifey bits ✔️
Lots of absorbant towels (could be messy) ✔️

With a quick cut, a few pulls and some stitches, baby @welshstacker arrived on the scene kicking and screaming.

Is there a better sound than that first cry of a new born? Music to my ears for now, but I'm sure that cry will get on my nerves eventually, but for now LOUD CRY = HEALTHY LUNGS

Can't believe that at 09:39 our little girl was born. She's a little under weight, but we'll soon fix that. If there's one thing I know how to do well, that's feed! #imafeeder

OK diary, I got to go now, hungry mum and baby to look after.

If you want to cap it at two, mention a third; right now. Go ask her. Get her response on video or in writing; and thank me 2 years from now.

The answer is NO!! It always was going to be no. I'm all for my own rugby team, but she told me yrs ago, 2 was IT....

Let's hope she takes after her mum. My son has inherited my looks (poor boy), let's hope she doesn't.

Congrats, my friend. I always wanted a boy, but after two daughters I leaned that there is nothing better than two daughters...:=)
