A handsome arrival!

Senan James Lock has arrived!

Senan James Lock was born 5 days overdue on Friday 7/7/17 (good DOB isn’t it!!) at 22:15 by c-section in RUH. He was only a little one at 6lbs 9oz although quite long so takes after his Daddy in that respect. 

It was a tough day yesterday but we’re both doing really well. Still in RUH - mostly for my recovery - and will be for another day or two. 

He’s just amazing - we’re completely besotted! We’ll be in to visit soon - here’s a few photos in the meantime.

Well done to whoever wins the sweepstake!!  😊

All the best,

Suzanne, Rich & Senan xx

First family holiday with Evie

For those that weren't here last week, Jane popped in with little Evie. She shared a few pictures from their first family holiday with Evie. I couldn't resist posting them as they are so cute!

 

An eventful week

A message from Matt

Jack Henry Slinn was born at the RUH on Wednesday 8th March, weighing 7lb 9 oz. We are now safe at home and enjoying life as a little family. Obviously everything is a massive learning curve; we’ve only had one night at home so far and you guessed it, it was no holiday! We are still very much in love, however.

Cups of tea, chocolate and jelly babies

Latest news from Jane

So, she doesn't really do sleeping and really enjoys eating. She's very strong and lifts herself up on her arms and her long legs pummel me when she is cross.  We've a passionate little girl on our hands. And it's beyond exhausting....

We've sent Tom out to work to bring us back news from the big outside world of grown-ups. Our aim is to be dressed, fed and alive when he returns (and preferably not crying).

But, Evie is so cute! Something about that makes it possible to keep going (that and cups of tea, too much chocolate and too many jelly babies).

A thank you and update from Jane!

To all at SRA....

Thanks so much for the beautiful flowers and Teddy gift. They arrived when this over tired mama was having a teary moment on Wednesday, and totally cheered me up!

This being a mum is the fastest learning curve I’ve ever been on, but Evie makes it worth it! She’s feeding well and being very cute.
Tom's just checking Evie is doing good growing.
