Special Delivery

Hello and sorry for the delay. Badger has arrived. He joined us October 22 at 7:10 am. He was 9lbs 4 oz and 21" long.  I've rewritten this post so many times. The truth is his birth was riddled with scary moments. He was floppy, blue, and lifeless. It took six lifetimes before I heard his first cry; and it's a bit hard to talk about...
 So instead I'm going to talk about the little things that mean so much. Like his tiny hand in mine.
Two tiny feet beginning their adventure in this world
two tiny ears, already listening to everything we say,
 
And one sweet tiny face, that still fits in my hand.
Welcome my sweet Badger.
Shine on.
~Love Mum~

    1. Thank you. Yes, we look forward, never back. In some ways it's nice that he is a fall baby, we have the quiet of the season to wrap up and hibernate at home while we learn who we are. Take care.
