Joshua John Michael

We are now officially a family of five...plus Charlie! Joshua joined us at 4.47am on 19th January after 30 hours of induction and 8 hours of labour. He weighed 7lb 9oz... my smallest baby! He seems so much smaller than the girls!


We got home on Saturday evening and we're slowly settling into our new routine. Mia and Jessica are over the moon with their new baby brother. According to Jess, he is "adorble" and "so cute"!


As for me, I'm still on painkillers but no worse for wear. I'd love a good nap though! But that is tempered with my desire to be doing something! I'm not very good at sitting and doing nothing! So today I started tidying my sewing desk so I can use nap times to get back to my machine and introduce Joshua to the sound of sewing! I unburied the triangles I received as part of the Alison Glass EPP Triangle swap last summer. I also found the extra fabric I'd dug out to add in and the planets aligned and I found the spare papers too! So I made up the extras, adding in the brand new 2019 Sunprints text fabrics and settled on a layout. Something else to work on between feeds and nappies...
