  16. Ha! I had no choice and they've all blurred into two or three hours in my head. Steve, on the other hand, was definitely a hero.

  18. Thank you! It's actually just... uh... gunk - the hospital doesn't bath babies for the first week because the vernix etc is so good for their skin.

  19. Thank you! Looking forward to your own announcement soon. x

  20. Ha! Feedly was doing the same - I quite like that everyone had a moment of thinking I'd taken the Spartacus joke too far. Can't wait to hear about YOUR baby, too!

  21. Ha! She's not shy about making her feelings known.

  26. Makes sense! They told us to keep the vernix bits in her leg folds. The human body is so interesting!!
