After keeping us waiting four days past his due date, our beautiful baby boy finally arrived into the world on Sunday 18th June at 9.16pm. He weighed a very chunky 9lbs, has the softest blonde hair and lovely big blue eyes just like his big sister and his Daddy. His full name is Hugo James William Lee. We decided on Hugo pretty much as soon as we knew he was a boy. James is after two of Josh’s brothers. And then William is not only Josh’s middle name but also his Dad’s and Grandad’s so we wanted to keep up the family tradition.
I managed to have the home water birth I had hoped for and it really was such an amazing experience. But unfortunately I did also have to be transferred into the local hospital afterwards due to a small post partum haemorrhage. That bit was pretty scary but luckily we didn’t have to stay at the hospital for very long and we were back home again within just 12 hours. I’ll be sharing Hugo’s birth story along with lots of photos from his birth in a separate post at some point this week hopefully!
I also wanted to say a huge thank you for all the lovely messages we have received following Hugo’s arrival, I have read every single one and we are so grateful for all of your kind words!
As you can imagine we are all absolutely besotted with our newest addition and he was totally worth the wait! We are loving settling into life as a family of four and just getting to know our little Hugo bear.
