There Is A Song
by Spike Milligan

There is a song in man
There is a song in woman
And that is the child's song.
When that song comes
There will be no words.
Do not ask where they are.
Just listen to the song.
Listen to it-
Learn it-
It is the greatest song of all

C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S !!!!!!!!

Yay! Yay! Yay! Congrats on so many levels. LOL and seeing as you have been on here it means you survived the labour! On a huge note for me, I go away to England and France in about 10 days and I was so scared I was going to miss this. Couldn't be happier for you guys. Enjoy every moment.

Congratulations! Welcome, Hugo!

Isn't it just the most overwhelming and amazing thing ever?

By the way, my son also decided to make a slightly early arrival, at 37 weeks. Like you, I had been taking weekly belly pictures. So for week 38 I held up my 38 sign and held my little guy up against my belly for one final picture. Now that he's 16 months old I already marvel at how tiny he was in that picture. It was a great way to finish the series, if you'd like to use your numbers one more time. :-)
