On Wednesday at 6.55pm, after a ten hour labour, a 9lbs 4oz baby boy was born at home. I was 40 plus 3.

Arlo, on your last day as my only child we went to your toddler signing class in the morning, played trains, practised the alphabet and read animal 123 in the afternoon. In the evening, you and Dada looked at youtube clips of dinosaurs, and Dada and Mama both put you to bed as usual.

Rory, we spent your first full day on the postnatal ward. When we got home, Arlo took great pleasure in showing you his train track, and then we all settled down for a very restless nights sleep.

Full birth story to follow soon.
