Hello world! Introducing Oscar Ezra Silver, born on the 18th July 2019, three weeks earlier than expected because he just couldn’t wait to see the world!
Despite a slightly earlier than expected entrance to the world, he was a healthy 6 pounds and 6 ounces and required no time in intensive care. Meaning he was ready to receive all the love and cuddles that were waiting for him from Mr S and I. We couldn’t be more over the moon and totally in love with our beautiful baby boy!
Having him filled the gap that I didn’t know needed filling; he is my heart, my soul and everything in between… I love him to the moon and back. Mr S and I just keep looking at each other and saying, I can’t believe he’s ours, I can’t believe we made him. Just looking at him makes my eyes fill with tears of love.
I took a while to announce his birth on social media as we just took some time to enjoy him for ourselves and for me to recover from the birth. It also took us ages to agree on a name! It’s surprising how few names we liked, let alone could agree on… plus Oscar has ten cousins so lots of names we liked were already taken.
Oscar, you make me look forward to every day with new and fresh eyes… I can’t wait to see the world from your point of view and feel excited about everything again for the first time.
I’m planning on writing all about the medical complications that hit us in week 34 plus the story of his birth and what it’s like to have a baby at the famous Lindo Wing. But for now…
Welcome to the world baby boy, you are so very loved.
