Allisters first bath.

Allister didn't like his first bath all that much!
Look at how chubby he's getting already, he was about 10 days old here i think.

Is it just me or does his hair have a red tinge?

Harrison's baby.

Hes adorable.

Even if I am biased :)

I woke up to this!

I was in flipfops last week!

The things he says.....

Harrison says the funniest things now.
He copies both Matt and I, so we have to watch what we say!
The cutest thing right now is when he calls "Honey!" to either of us.
He hears us call each other and so he does it too, normally when he wakes up from his nap, "Huuuuneeeeeee"
So cute!

This little guy is 2 weeks old today :)

Look how big he is already and see his crazy hair! It's the only
resemblance he has to Harrison right now. Remember Harrison's crazy dark hair too?
He's such a good baby and he loves his swing to bits!

Oh and today would have been my due date. Funny how it feels like Allister has been here forever already! they fit right in :)

Labour Day.

Our final family of 3 photo, this is just before we left for the hospital.
I'm so big!

After a totally painless amniocentesis at 9am, we went to labor and delivery.
This is me before the pain kicks in!

Me pretending to be in pain!
Notice how we don't have any real contraction photos......

My labour coaches waiting.

OK, graphic photo warning.....
Here is Allister being born.

Daddy cuts the cord.

Hi Daddy!

Allister Samuel Blake arrived at 10:03pm after a relatively easy labor of 9 1/2 hours. Almost exactly how long labor was with Harrison. I pushed for 4 contractions (about 20 minutes).
He was 8lb 6oz, 21inches long and had a head size of 14inches.

He has tons of dark hair just like Harrison did at birth, but is much rounder in the body and face. His eyes are dark grey/blue. I have a feeling this boys going to be dark with dark eyes like me.

Hi Mummy!

Our wonderful nurse Mary-Beth.
She was with us through the whole delivery and was awesome.

And below my wonderful OB/Gyn Doctor Rhonda Gaiser. It made such a difference to have the doctor I have known for 3 years deliver my baby.

After patching me up and some baby checks, we finally got moved from the delivery room to our regular room around midnight. We were then bombarded with baby nurses and mummy nurses who had lots of temperatures, baths, checks and more checks to do. They didn't leave us alone till around 3am so we were all very tired by that point! Although daddy did snore through many of the check ups.........

I think I clocked about 2 or 3 hours sleep by the time they started checking in on us again at 7am sharp! I highly recommend having your baby early in the day!

Then the visitors arrived!
Harrison got to meet his baby brother, he was more interested in the new train toy we got him.
He pointed said baby, and that was as much interest as he showed.

After our 2 night stay we were all ready to go home!
All puffy from the IV fluids.
