I'll start with the soaring high of welcoming Miss April Rose last Tuesday 27 July at 2am.
Labour started Monday morning, a bit of deep breathing some hollering and 20hrs later she arrived (6 days late even). Everything about her is perfect and utterly adorable.
I'm still in recovery mode although in the scheme of it i've come out of it somewhat unmarred for a natural delivery.
However despite reading about what my post labour body might be like it did not prepare me for the reality of how labour would affect my body and what living with that is like.
It is getting better, slowly and I'm looking forward to taking April out into the world and sharing it with her.
Mr Blue-eyes is totally besotted and loves taking her for morning walks (i love him doing it so i can get an hour or so real sleep).
The crushing low we experienced was the loss of our Bruno. It happened a couple of weeks ago but i was unable to write about it because it was so upsetting. I still can't really go into details even yet but can say that it was a car out the front of our house. We were both there at the time and Mr Blue-eyes lost his best mate in his arms.
We miss him so badly and had really wanted him to meet April...
