Since I last posted life has been a bit of a rollercoster, with good and bad bits. Unfortunately my older brother, Ian died from sepsis. He was quite unwell at Christmas and spent time in hospital with pneumonia. Since then he hadn't been particularly well. We had been planning on visiting him during my holiday, which is this week. Sadly he died before I got to see him. His funeral is on the 15th June which seems a long time to wait and I'm not sure why it is so delayed. I've never posted a photo of Ian so I'll hunt one out.
Last Tuesday Katy was due to have an induction of labour starting at 5 p.m. In the end they started it at 2 a.m. on Wednesday morning! It was a balloon induction and when they removed the balloon she had a very quick labour with little one being born at 7:15p.m. or there abouts that evening. It was all rather traumatic as his heart rate started to drop, so they used forceps and Katy lost rather a lot of blood, but both mother and baby are doing well. So here is an overload of baby pictures of Aubrey William. The first one is proud Dad Oliver plus baby quite soon after he was born.
He was 8 pounds 2 ounces but the new born size baby clothes seem rather large on him.
He likes his Moses basket for snoozing. I'm pleased I got the lining finished in time.
The plastic box has replaced my knitting bag for the moment as Missy loves to play and bite wool. However she is good when I sit at the table to use the sewing machine. She settles herself on my feet. It's a good job I can operate it without the foot peddle.
