I, (as I am sure most of you were too) was eagerly awaiting Kate and William leaving hospital with their precious baby boy last week. It was so lovely to watch them, they looked so happy. I was happy for them. It’s such a wonderful moment in your life as a new parent. Even Wriggler and Bruiser watched it. Wriggler was quite aware of it all as they have talked about it at school and when I told him on the monday morning that his future king or queen was going to be born that day he couldn’t quite believe it. Bruiser wasnt really aware of what was going off but when they came out he kept saying awww bebee bebee and signing ‘baby’.
I actually felt quite emotional watching it. It brought back so many wonderful memories of bringing my babies home for the first time and those first precious hours at home, starting our life together. I couldn’t not look back through the photos, it was lovely to see them again and relive the memories and share them with the boys and talk to them about the day that we fetched each of them home and tell them how special it was.
Bringing your baby home is special no matter how many children you have but each one is uniquely precious. For Wriggler, he was our first-born! We had waited 9 long months for this moment. We were so SO happy but also scared to death about parenthood and what was in store for us.
For Bruiser, when he was born, we never thought we would take him home so this day was so very special for so many reasons. Again we were so SO happy, but yet petrified (i think that best describes the feeling), we were bringing a 4 week old premmie home, 5 weeks before his actual due date, whats not to be scared about? *eeeek
Bruiser came home twice though…. At 11 days old, he was transferred from the Calderdale/Halifax Hospital NICU to the NICU at our local hospital.
Then 17 days later we finally fetched him home with us.
Bringing Baby Home… It couldn’t be anything else for my #magicmoments post this week 🙂
