Introducing Ryan Joseph Storer

Born on the 4th December at 9.50am.
It was a doozy of a labour, but I'm trying now to focus on the outcome. His first hours on land were pretty tough, had to go into a humidicrib for the first six hours due to respiratory distress caused by a KNOT in the umbilical cord. It was such a good knot that the doctors took photos of it! The photo above is at 2 days old on the ward at the John Hunter Hospital

Excuse my nudity, but we were having the "skin to skin" time that we missed out on at his birth. So this is me with my two sons. Gee I like the sound of that. Always wanted to be a mother of multiple children and its finally happened.

This is my two boys together. Mark is still very unsure of holding Ryan. He is a wriggly worm that is for sure.

Well its actually late on Christmas Eve. Ryan will be awake soon for a feed, so I guess I should head off to bed. I'll share the gory details soon.

Happy Wednesday.

I've noticed on lots of blogs that it is often "Wordless Wednesday" well stuff that. As if I haven't got anything to say.

But to be truthful, I'm still just waiting. We got some renovations done on the weekend, my mini cupboard was made, its so cute, its gonna be for glad wrap etc. We had another dust storm so couldn't paint the doors (again) but its ok. The major problem with the renovations now is that it brings all the tools back inside and I hate having all of the tools lying around.

Mum is arriving today. She'll be here about 1.30pm which is pretty exciting. I'm so looking forward to seeing her. Haven't seen her since my birthday 3 months ago. So much has happened since then, sort of weird actually. Still feel a little bit guilty about not having family at our wedding as we are really a family orientated family. But I can show her the pictures.

Gotta tidy up a bit, but last night I had *period pains* for most of the night, making it quite difficult to sleep, the heartburn was pretty horrific too.

Marky is doing his speech for House Captain today. Fingers crossed. He's quite nervous.

Still not taking photos yet, waiting for the bub.
