The new arrival
Eli was late arriving.Eventually he arrived in style,at home in the living room,It was a planned Home birth,and with 2 older kids it seemed the easier option.Eli was a considerate baby and decided he wanted us to Labour over night,so Max and Megan could sleep soundly upstairs in their beds, unaware as to the pain and agony that was happening below them. After what seemed forever he thought it was time to make an appearance.The kids then decided it was time to get up at 6.30am on a Sunday,Dave went to let them know what was going on and they popped down to say hello and being only 6&7 at the time wanted a bit of reassurance.which was fine,Mothers multi-task all the time.At 8.45am our little bundle was here screaming his head off! which was a good thing at the time. Megan was the first to hear his cry, They then knew that Eli had arrived at last.After a quick clean up operation they got to meet him,what can i say,tears all around.Megan asked "are you all right mummy" and i just answers "yes darling i'm fine now". And that's just the beginning of the tale that is the Blog of Eli.
