Baby boy Luca Phoenix was born exactly one week ago this evening, on Sunday June 2nd - just one day after my own birthday. And he is beautiful. And amazing. And perfect. And I still cry and pinch myself at just how lucky a mummy I am. Two beautiful babies. Two perfect little people to raise and care for and share our lives with.
He kept us waiting 9 long days after my due-date before he decided to join us - and this mummy was slowly loosing her mind, being close to 10 months pregnant in the sweltering Oslo heat. But once the midwife put this big (4575 g/10 lbs 1 oz), dark haired and beautiful little boy on my chest, all was forgiven and forgotten.
He made our family grow. He made Nahla a big sister. He fitted so perfectly into our lives. I am happy, exhausted, delirious with joy and so very very blessed.
