Updated, more pics. Meeting Toby - video - 5 minutes old



You all voted he was a boy, and you were right. I told you he had big flat feet. This is a foot in real size. He has the biggest feet, and they are flat. It's a Sainsbury trait. Alas, a ballet dancer he never will be.

Daddy and Toby. Bob was saying hello my littlest son, I will always look after you, we will do our best, and thank you for choosing us and trusting us to be your parents. God, can I fall any more deeper in love with my husband?


Mummy and Toby, checking him out. I am addicted, and I continue to be. We had so little time with him, we pushed the limits of the nurses, we sneaked these photos, we just couldn't get enough of him and we miss him so much.



You do not want to miss out on the birth of your baby! Bob was multi-tasking, on the phone with his mum, holding the video camera and trying to get to his newborn son. Have you ever seen a mother grab for her baby as fast as me?

Finally! I'm at work and was just able to view the vid. My workmates are wondering what is the noise (crying baby) coming from my computer and why I am blubbering at my desk.

Meg, your face when you were first handed Toby is classic. It's a mix of complete shock, total disbelief, and utter joy all at once. Yes, you're "a Mummy"!

What utterly wonderful news for you both. After so many years and attempts this is goose bump inducing stuff. Your video was so emotional it made me cry too. Enjoy the wonder of your little Toby & thank you so much for sharing your joy with the world!

I got chills watching that - it bought back EVERYTHING from when our two were born. I love, love that new mum startled/amazed looked. I'm going to check with Nik when he gets home to see if I had the same facial expressions, and I bet I did. Truly amazing. Thanks SO much for sharing.

Tigerlilycat said...

Back again - according to Nik I did have exactly the same expression when I walked past the theatre on my way to the bathroom and heard Alex cry, and when we first met him 13mins later my look had turned to total disbelief. I'm claiming that on him being in a room all on his own in a baking dish!!

Daria said...
