Isla Jean Ward arrived at 10.35am on Sunday the 26th April, and I have to say it was the happiest day of my life. She's now settling in well at chez Ward and we've been out and about (she likes the pram) and seen quite alot this past week. Mummy is now feeling a lot more human after a long labour, and I think we're coping very well with the big adjustment to life Isla brings. Its been a steep learning curve but I can wield the nappy better than my 00 brush and change, burp and bathe the little one as if a veteran of many campaigns (well, almost).
Hijacking my mini blog here's some proud dad pics. Blowing a bubble with mummy, grumpy face and getting a manicure!
It's tiring but great, and for a little while at least my hobby will have to take a back seat (mind you, I painted the face of a mini last week while Isla got a feed, sneaked that one in!!). As MacArthur said, 'l shall return'.
