Noah Gabriel Smith joined us on Wednesday morning, 12 April, at 9.21am by planned caesarean section, weighing a chunky 3.91kg. He’s calm, content, and feeding and sleeping like a dream. We feel incredibly blessed. We were discharged from hospital on Easter Sunday, and we’re both enjoying getting to know each other and taking it easy at home.
Henry has been a superstar. Before now, the longest we’ve been apart was just a few hours, but, incredibly, he’s taken the huge changes to his little life in his stride, and loves stroking Noah’s hair and tiny feet, and says ‘shhh, it’s okay Noah!’ when he cries.
I’m looking forward to posting Noah’s birth story soon.
