Introducing Noah Rêve...


Today I'd like to introduce the newest member of our little family... 

Noah Rêve was born on 31st March 2015 at 9.40 am by planned c-section.

He weighed 8 lbs exactly, and was 19 inches long - the same length as his big brother but a whole 1 lb 2 oz heavier! 



He is absolutely tiny...just like his big brother he is wearing Early/Tiny baby clothes and is in Micro nappies.

He has very dark hair and eyes, but his hair is getting lighter by the day!

Noah's first name was chosen a good few months ago...it has always been my favourite boys name but we decided not to use it for Tyne because I was worried that it was too popular, but when we found out that this baby was a boy it seemed silly to me to have two sons and neither of them have the name I have loved forever! ...we had initially settled on the name Elijah for the new baby but I started to change my mind at about 4 months pregnant and that's when Noah was chosen!

His middle name, Rêve, was only decided a few days before he was born when my mum suggested it and I loved how it flowed with Noah and its meaning (It's French for "Dream").



Noah has a little bit of jaundice and is sleeping a lot at the moment, but has a good hour or so of wide awake time in the evenings where he likes to stare into our eyes and have a good look around.

He is such a little darling and we are totally smitten already!

Tyne is loving his new role as big brother - he's full of kisses and cuddles for Noah, and their first meeting in the hospital was the most heart-melting moment ever! (Video coming soon!)




The birth and recovery were more difficult for me than last time, but I'll write up my birth story and talk more about all of that soon...for now I'm doing much better and just enjoying settling in to life as Mummy of two boys!

My blog posts are scheduled for the next week or so while I get settled, and Noah's birth story will follow soon so stay tuned! :)
