As Valentine’s Day presents go my gift this year has to be the best yet – none other than a Valentine’s Day baby!

And…it’s a girl!

Our Valentine's Day baby!

I’m so pleased to be able to announce the arrival of our third baby Marigold May in the early hours of Valentine’s Day morning, a week after her due date.

If I’d been asked one more time if I’d had the baby yet I would have screamed – just one of the things they don’t tell you about being overdue that was driving me crazy, along with:

  • Constant enquiries about whether I was having ‘twinges’ – YES!
  • Constant enquiries about whether anything was ‘happening’ – NO!
  • Constant enquiries about whether I’d tried x, y or z – NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS!

At 9lb 2oz she’s almost two whole pounds heavier than her brother and sister were when they were born, so it’s rather ironic that I’d decided to call her Littlest B here on the blog.

But I’m definitely not changing it now, so please say hello to Littlest B!

It turns out I was right not to write a birth plan, but more on that next week.

In the meantime we’re adjusting to becoming a family of five and having lots (and lots and lots and lots) of kisses and cuddles…

Did you get a Valentine’s Day present this year? I’d love to hear what it was!
