Max's first photo

Say hello…

Max's first photo… to Max John Miaoulis, born at 11:51 this morning – 7 pounds 6 ounces of perfect.

I have lots more to say, obviously, but I also have a gorgeous baby boy to stare at, so I know you’ll all forgive me for the quick update: Max and I are both doing well, though, and Terry and I are absolutely besotted with our new arrival, so I’m sure there’ll be plenty of photos in the days to come!

  • Oh he’s so cute. I’m so happy for you. And also: OMG you made a baby. And I know people make them every day but it’s still so cool.

Although I really never comment, I’ve been following this pregnancy from the beginning and you’ve been in my thoughts so much over the last few days! I’ve been sending all my positive thoughts and finger-crossing from halfway around the world, even though I know it’s silly I hoped all of our support could be felt and help in some way. I’m SO incredibly happy that you are both doing so well, and so excited to see more of Max! Hugs xx

    Congratulations, Amber and Terry. Max is gorgeous! I’m very sorry to hear about Terry’s Mum. I’ve been following your blog on and off for a few months now, after finding it by accident. You have a great mix of articles and I sympathise about your anxiety issues, but the way you write about them is absolutely hilarious. You do know yourself. Anyway, congratulations again, and parenthood is the wonderfullest (I know), scariest, funniest thing, and I hope you enjoy every moment of it. Dawn
