Introducing Mr. Page

Our long awaited arrival decided to come early on 5th November. And now, we can't imagine our lives without him. He is an absolute angel (apart from coming early on mummy's designated day spa day, but don't worry I'll remind him of that when he is older) and only cries when wanting to be fed. Is this the calm before the storm!?
So here is our little man, Lucas Justin Page. He was 3.48 kilo's and 51cm.



He is basically a mini version of his daddy including spiky black hair that I can't stop stroking. And he is a kicker and a mover - but he was like that when in my belly too so we are not surprised.

I never thought my life would be so fulfilled. All the cliches about 'best thing to ever happen' and 'your life will never be the same' and 'best thing we ever did' now make 100% complete and utter sense to me. Even at 2am in the morning through groggy sleepy eyes.

It is also amazing to see my husband as a father and the love and bond he has for his son. This is my favourite picture so far of them together.



This is us leaving the hospital which was really more like a hotel and we did not want to leave. Or at least, we wanted to take all the midwives home with us (and the chef! My husband complained about putting on wieght in the hospital as he stayed everynight in our double bed and was served 5 meals a day - he knows he won't be getting that at home!).



I never imagined this happiness...so now, with our dog Sophie in tow, our family feels complete. It's funny as it felt complete before and I didn't think life could get any better. But it just did.

Yay what a gorgeous family you guys are! Perhaps it's a blessing he came early because then you don't have to recover from surgery...in any case I'm excited to hear about the complete Page family for many blog posts to come!

I am so sorry to have missed this Monika, have been on holiday.

He is beautiful and what a wonderful name..my youngest son is called Luke...

I cannot imagine a hospital that you did not want to leave, and with a double bed, and meals, you don't get that in the UK at all.

Congratulations to you and your husband, a lovely family, so welcome Lucas! x
