Look what the weekend brought. Another ordinary day that turned into a birthday for one Edward Francis Jeffcoat.

The first of anything always feels like an auspicious day to be born, doesn’t it? Fresh beginnings for everything, and the freshest of all for you.

I will try to explain all about it when I can. Until then, please come back for some really fabulous What I Wish I’d Known About Two guest posts, which I’m planning to set going tomorrow. And I’ll be sat in bed with three boys, probably eating chocolate buttons, probably delirious from two hours’ sleep in every twenty-four (forgot about that bit), probably feeling like it’s the best day ever.

Happy July to you!

  1. Massive congrats to you! How wonderful, he came before anyone was waiting on him, a good sign too 🙂 and two boys, lovely boys are very very special indeed 🙂 x

  2. Congratulations Rachel, Timothy and Henry. Isn’t the new kid on the block simply adorable? And the big brother is smiling so beautifully holding his little brother. Lovely news. Btw how many weeks was it? 38?

  3. Oh wow. Was wondering why you hadn’t responded to my emails – now I know! A beautiful boy to join a beautiful family. You’ll have a blast raising 2 boys – I know I am. Many congratulations xxx

  4. Longtime lurker and huge fan of your writing, just wanted to wish you many congratulations on Edward’s arrival.

  5. Thank you so much everyone! We are so enjoying him. He is wonderful.

    And it was 37 and a half weeks, with no signs at all beforehand – a big surprise! But not a bad one 🙂
