Home, hot and happy!

24 Dec

It turns out that last night was the hottest December night on record, a perfect time to bring Maggie home! Yeeks.

After Maggie was born on Wednesday, I had one night in hospital then three nights at the Park Hyatt which was rather nice. Time for Maggie and I to get to know each other and get feedings going. Tilda and Simon came to visit each day and the sister’s first first meeting was in the lobby of the hotel.

Back in the room, Tilda found Maggie’s cries to be very funny which is good news indeed as Maggie is a bit of a tyrant especially when it comes to wanting boobs! This being often!


Since being home, the girls have bonded over Dora.


And started to get to know each other.


Maggie is a delight and we are all getting to grips with this whole new world. Thank you so much for all the lovely messages, the visits, the food and the presents. Sending everyone huge holiday cheer and a special mention to Tilda’s best friend Jack who unfortunately will be spending Christmas at the Royal Children’s Hospital with increased seizure activity. Thinking of you all the time Jack and sending huge love.

Merry Christmas to all!!

    Maggie and Tilda – what great photos! I love hoe Maggie has just subtly leaned into her big sister. She’s gorgeous! I can’t believe how darktilda’s hair has become. It has been way too long since we’ve caught up.
    Love to you and your family of 4! Xxx
