On Monday morning, about 3:20am, another Illiterate Infant came into the world. There’s a whole birth story waiting to be told about this one, but for now, I’ll just summarise it by saying that my wife amazed me, filled me with pride and proved that I am a terrible judge of character.
There will be a bit of radio silence for the next few days while we get to know our new family member but hang in there, I’ll be announcing the winner of the baby stats guessing competition later in the week.
Thanks to everyone that’s sent their well wishes. I have been blown away not just by the amount of really beautiful things that people have had to say but at the way people within the parenting blogging community love good news. Thanks everyone.
A newborn is full of little challenges one after the other and our next one is to agree on a name. We’ve got a shortlist but thought we would get to know our little girl first – hopefully we can sort that out tomorrow.
How long did it take you to name your child? Did you already have the name picked out or did you decide after the fact? Did you change your mind once you met them?
I’ll be sharing my good news this week with Jess at essentiallyjess.com for IBOT – you should check her out – she’s awesome.
