Taylor George Cawood – Ta daaaaaaa! Born 23/11/10

He is here! What a relief. Just a quick post to share a few early pics and say a huge thank you to everyone for their fantastic and very touching messages.
Taylor arrived by CSection at 4.13pm on the 23rd Nov and we are both doing well, my gestational diabetes has disappeared and Taylor’s blood sugars have been absolutely fine. No side effects for either of us fortunately!

The first 24hrs together weren’t quite as planned to say the least as I has a severe reaction to the diamorphine they put into the spinal block so wasn’t a happy bunny but will no doubt blog about this later lol. I’m fine now and we are settled back at home, and loving being a family of four.
I do just have to mention that the staff at the hospital, from the Maternity Day Unit, to the Maternity Ward & Theatre and of course the Diabetic Team have been absolutely fantastic and hugely supportive throughout and we are all very grateful (Friarage Hospital, North Yorks).

  1. He is gorgeous, congratulations to you all! I love the first picture of the 2 boys, so sweet! I only wish the first picture I had of Catriona meeting her little brother was not of her laughing her head off at this strange little being!!!!

  2. Aaaaawwww! How scrummy is he….When i'm next through I will have to give you a ring and see if we can have a quick cuppa and an exchange of cuddles. Can't wait to meet him. I bet Kieran is so proud of his new little brother. Love to you all xxx

  3. Gawd I only had a baby 10 weeks ago & it makes me clucky seeing him! Welcome baby Taylor!!I have bad reactions to spinal blocks too 🙁

  4. Thank you all! I'm still pinching myself to be honest, I have a great husband, who has been nothing short of truly fantastic, a cracking, funny and cuddly four year old and a gorgeous and well settled newborn.I must have done something right at some point!
