On Wednesday the 21st August 2013 we welcomed our baby boy into this big wide world. I can’t even begin to explain to you what an experience it was, I still actually have to sit down and think about what I went through that day. But that’s a story for another day.
Our baby boy, Jordan Nicholas Smal, was born naturally at 5:20pm last week Wednesday (eleven days before his due date) after fifteen hours of pretty intense labour. Jordan was born exactly a week after me, and he gave me a whopping two days of maternity leave in which I cleaned the house pretty vigorously – I totally blame my early labour on that. I couldn’t be happier that he arrived early though. The more time I have at home with him, the better.
