Gave him as much time as I could but had to have help in the end after 19 days overdue!! Robert William arrived on Sunday 18th January at 2.33pm after a c-section starting with induction on Friday at 9pm. He weighed 9lbs 3ozs and is absolutely gorgeous!

We are both doing well and enjoying being at home after leaving hospital yesterday.
