Introducing Kitty


She is here.

Earlier than expected, smaller than expected, and just perfect in every way.


Katherine Lyvenia arrived last week weighing in at a teeny 2685g or 5lb 15oz. She has chicken legs and a cranky face but melts my heart just the same. I could go on and on with a baby gushing post but am too sleep deprived to make the gushing coherent. She took us by surprise so her room isn't even ready yet, but as soon as I am organised I will post photos of the nursery, and all the lovely handmade goodies that make it so special.
