Astrid, the due date baby

So she’s here. A punctual baby! 

Labour was long and slow and didn’t progress, then suddenly it did and it was over so quickly. It was unassisted and normal and just perfect. 

She’s just perfect. 

And so is Iris. The perfect big sister. Trevor is incredible too, and my mum has been so amazing. The bigger girls are also wonderful. I love them all. So much.  

 I’m trying to write something that captures today. The day after giving birth. It’s raw. It’s a feeling like no other and I can’t find the words. I’ll try again. Soon. 

In the meantime, I just wanted to pop by and introduce our new girl and thank you all for the many kind messages you’ve sent. I’m overwhelmed. Thank you.
