I know I'm biased but he's beautiful.
So, that's the first secret out - I was expecting a boy!
The second thing I've kept to myself is that I was booked in for another c-section and I'd had my date scheduled since my last consultant appointment on 21st February. It wasn't a decision I took lightly but I knew it was the right one for me and I don't regret it for a single moment. I never thought it would be as good as the first experience with MC's birth but it was. In fact, it was better. I will report more on that soon.
So Baby E is here.
He needs a 'blog name'.
Mini Cheddar's name was born out of the fact some friends of mine call me 'Cheddar' or 'Ched' for short so it was natural we all had a laugh when I was pregnant with a 'Mini Cheddar'. I had every intention of nicknaming this little one Babybel or BB for short but I'm not sure if it sounds a little girly? It's either that or Baby Ched. What do you think?
Baby E (as he will be known as for now) is a totally different baby to what MC was. All he does is sleep. Honestly, you wouldn't even know he was here. Matt and I are getting good solid blocks of sleep each night - we are actually waking him for feeds or he'd sleep through the night. He just sleeps and sleeps and sleeps. I've never known a baby like it.
MC loves him very much as you can see from my Silent Sunday post yesterday. She's totally besotted and so gentle and caring with him.
So, this is a very quick update just to let you know how things are and to officially announce he's here.
I'm unbelievably happy. I have a new man in my life and he's the best.
I'm in love.
