He Sleeps

While the little screaming devil child angel is asleep, I can take this opportunity to both pump breast milk and post some piccies.

Shit. Or not. Obviously he knew I just called him a devil child. Devil children would sense these things. So Spud comes surfing with Panda.

I have to say its been a very difficult week since Spud was born. Its hard to believe he's a week old. It seems more like one v.e.r.y l.o.n.g day.

I will post my birth story. I started keeping notes in the hospital of what was happening, but after the second pethadine shot I lost the will or ability or both to write anymore. Suffice to say, there was little in the way of granola, and it will be a long story.

To tide you over til then, have a squiz at the cutest baby in history.

Our first family photo, about half an hour after delivery.

4 hours old.

36 hours old.

Look at that cute little bundle. He loves curling up just like a hedgehog.

All snugged up and ready to come home, in the knitted cardigan his father wore home from hospital and the blanket his great-grandmother knitted especially for him.


  1. he's SO beautiful.and welcome home and back on the net. looking forward to the birth story. and take care. a new baby can be pretty exhausting:)

  2. Welcome to the world Spudly. Well done Panda, he's a cute one-you did good!

    Awwwwwwwwwwwww he is so sweet and you look so radiant!

    My son is now 8 months old but I remember those first few weeks of getting to know each other so well. It is such hard work!

  4. You have a beautiful family. I'm glad he finally made it into the real world. Gorgeous name too. Congratulations. :)

  5. That's one adorable little devil baby! You look wonderful, you all look wonderful. Hurrah for you all! Hope he's letting you sleep a little bit in the weeks to come. *hugs*

  6. He is so adorable. As the mother of a now 12 year old devil child, I so understand. We used to call Alex, Damian, after the kid in the Omen movies.

    It really will get better but they do sense when you want to eat, sleep or do something fun. You have to learn to just keep thinking about them in your mind and then go do what you need to do, it will help in the future by giving the ability to multitask without effort. ;)

    So very happy for you that he finally is here and that you are both healthy.

  7. Oh look at that, SPUDLY! He is adorable, and look at you 3! A family indeed, how cte, did I say cute, and adorable, oh these pictures are just lovely!

    Cannot wait to read the birth story so may I suggest an old Portie recipe for restless children so you find the time? We call them "Tired Horse Soups", just add some alcohol to the milk. Thank you.

  8. What a cute potato you've got!

    Awww . . .

  9. GORGEOUS!!! GORGEOUS!!! Panda... darling Panda... you TRULY do look completely glorious in those photos... what a stunning looking family... the joy and cuteness just LEAPS off the screen... hugs, snuggles, and cuddles to Spud!

    Can hardly WAIT to read the gory details of the birthstory...


  10. Oh my goodness - he IS the cutest baby in history! And you look pretty darn good for someone who went through such an, yes, ordeal. (I'm so proud of you.)

    Thank you for sharing him with us! Now you can scare the crap out of us with your story.

  11. Oh congratulations! Of course I got to see a phone piccy of him first - I'm so freakin' spoiled. Can you believe that he's here at last? Yay Panda!


Comments make blogging a conversation, rather than mere self-indulgent navel-gazing. Look at that big empty space down there...just waiting for your thoughts.
