Pre-dawn, first look and new line.

1. It is so long since I have seen a bare tree against the pre-dawn sky that I cannot stop staring.

2. "There's definitely only one," says the sonographer squadging the scanner wand down hard just to make sure, "and there's its heartbeat, there, can you see it flickering in the middle of the image?"
And that's our second baby.

3. As we are putting Alec to bed he pops out a new construction: "That's my Mummy!" He's never used 'my' before.

PS: Reginald is back on his cabbage leaves, so perhaps he changed his mind about pupating.


  1. Congratulations! So happy for all of you.

  2. Congratulations! Alec will be a wonderful big brother!

  3. What wonderful news! Congratulations -- Alec will be a great big brother!

  4. Splendid news, congratulations!

  5. Thanks everyone -- all good wishes much appreciated and have really cheered me up. I really do feel very sorry for myself at the moment.

    Joe -- if you want triplets, you gestate and birth them yourself!

  6. Wonderful news. You will manage it all perfectly in your own inimitable way and with your two men to help you.

  7. Congratulations! I love your blog and this is lovely news.
