Introducing Nicholas Luke McNamara



On the 19th of April at 7:40 pm Nicholas Luke was born into the world at Newcastle Private Hospital.  He was 52cm long and weighed a whopping 9.8 pounds.  After a "natural" labour of 15 hours with an epijural and forceps delivery he finally made his appearance.

We came home from hospital yesterday to settle in at home.  So far Nicholas is a very calm baby who just loves to be cuddled and snuggled up.  We absolutely adore him.  I am still recovering from the labour.  

I will try and snatch a few moments here and there to post some pictures.

I hope you are all well,

Alicia xx
