Here’s Harry!

Sorry to keep you all in suspense! I wasn’t able to post from hospital, and to be perfectly honest, I was too tired! We had some challenges with feeding and sleeping, and let’s be honest, I’m not as young as I was the first time around (and I wasn’t even young then!).

But the important thing is that our new son, our little Harry William, is lovely:


All the fingers and toes, present and correct (ok, you’ll have to trust me on the fingers and the other foot!)


His going home vest fitted perfectly, and despite all appearances, he wore it happily all day!

(He just didn’t like being changed while he was asleep! Who can blame him!)

But once he was home and snuggled under his lovely Pashmina blanket, he was content!

As are we, of course! Our little family is complete and we are all besotted with our new addition. Even Connor, who adores his little brother and loves to “pat” his head, to watch him sleep, and to marvel at his “little fingers”. He has even offered to give his little brother “all his old cars” to play with when he is bigger!

    Hello Harry! It was so lovely to cuddle you the other day and I know you will be so happy in your new home, draped in knitwear. And cars. Love to you all xx

    Beautiful Harry. We gazed from a distance. I can’t wait to have a cuddle. Hopefully next time. We look forward to watching Harry grow and how exciting to have a little brother for Connor. Huge that Connor is happy to share his cars with him! What beautiful gifts you received from your talented friends. Happy dance time xxx

    “Lovely” is an understatement. He’s just beautiful. What a wonderful brother Connor is, sharing cars with him. Grab rests when you can. Even a few minutes at a time is good.

  4. Congratulations on your beautiful new baby – he is lovely!! Well done you for growing such a gorgeous little man 🙂
    (and the knits are fab too, but in this instance the knitting takes second place)

  5. Oh Jane, Harry is so beautiful!! Congratulations to you all. I can only imagine your happiness at the moment!

  6. Having raised two boys, I know you have a fantastic journey ahead! The babe is wonderful. Enjoy!

  7. Congratulations, Jane. Best wishes to you and your beautiful family.

    OMG, OMG, he is BEEEEEE-UUUUU-TEEEE-FULLL!!! He looks just like Connor, don’t you think? So sweet. Thank you for posting – you’re a trouper! – but I was dying to see him and hear the news, so I’m glad you did. So glad to hear. And the blankie! You’re awesome. Congratulations!

    Congratulations on your new son. He is gorgeous and definately looks content under his knitted blanket. Nice to hear that Connor loves him already. Get lots of rest.

  10. So cute! (And such royal names 😉

  11. Hooray! I am so glad he is here safe and sound, so glad you have the feeding thing all worked out, sometimes new little ones are not sure what to do with the feeding/sucking stuff. I bet Connor is over the moon with happiness.
    congrats and hugs,

  12. *melting*

    Congratulations again, and welcome to Harry ❤ Glad to hear things are good, and Connor is pleased enough with his new brother to offer hand me down cars!

    Oh – he’s so gorgeous! Congratuations to you all. How wonderful that Connor wants to share his cars (even if they are the old ones!).

  14. Congratulations! What a beautiful little boy — even without the lovely handknits! I’m glad that you are both healthy and happy.

  15. A big hello and welcome to adorable Harry! I grew up without brothers and had three lovely sisters instead, so when I realized that my 2nd and 3rd children were both going to be boys, I was a little afraid. I have to say that it’s been a JOY (and I can say that even though they’re teenagers now), so I am highly recommending the “two boys close together” club. Enjoy yourselves and congratulations!

    That’s so awesome congratulations all!! Enjoy the newborn hugs, i miss them already! xx

  17. Oh, welcome Harry!! You are so lucky to be part of a lovely family. It made me misty eyed when I read about Connor’s car offer. Congratulations!!!

  18. So Harry got the guernsey in the end, great name. They look alike don’t they? Congratulations on the birth and getting through those early days – it gets better every day (well until they’re teenagers anyway)….
