Introducing Arthur

After three months, I’m finally back blogging again, and I thought it only fair I introduce the reason behind my sabbatical.

Lovely Arthur was born on 26th July by emergency C-section, after I once again refused to go into labour, despite being 2 weeks late. This time I resisted being induced for as long as possible, but once we got to 13 days over, there was no hiding from the chemicals. Luckily the C-section was a complete success, and although Arthur had to spend a few days in hospital with jaundice, I managed to keep the breast-feeding going, and we were soon safely home. Then, six weeks later we moved to Dubai….but more on that later. Here’s a few pictures from the first few weeks of Arthur’s life. For more – follow me on Instagram.

P.S. The gorgeous portrait at the top of this page was taken by the incredibly lovely Chloé Browne from Caught the Light. She used film, which gives the pictures a luminosity that you don’t get from digital. Do get in touch with her if you’re looking for baby pictures or family portraits – she’s brilliant!
