Evan is at “home”

We left the hospital late last night after a rather prolonged (3 hours) discharge – some of which was taken up with watching an American lady on a DVD tell us how to look after our American child. You’ll be pleased to know that its not that different from looking after a British child! We were told that we made the discharge more difficult by being British! We hasten to add that we weren’t being difficult, although we did have to put out foot down when Evan disappeared for another barrage of unnecessary tests for over an hour! For the national childbirth trusters out there, the USA is a whole new battlefield. But we are “home.” Its 100 degrees outside and the air conditioning is going strong inside. Evan, Becca and Thomas are asleep and the world is at peace….for now!

    Wowee, what brilliant news. He is absolutely gorgeous and extremely handsome. We’re thrilled that everything went so smoothly and can’t wait to meet the new mouse when you get back. I hope that T likes his new bro and is being very good at looking after him.

    Sending you all our love as always, Amy and James xxx
    p.s. Evan is a really cool name too.

    Congratulations guys! I think Evan looks like his big brother already! The lady on the baby video looks kind of stern and scary for a baby doctor – avoid her, and go to Auntie Sarah instead, who I believe is over with you just now. Best of luck.

    Welsh Becky says her mouse is broken, preventing her from looking at pictures of the new mouse. Ahem. Anyhoo, peas in a pod spring to mind. Very cute family portrait of you all. Hope you’re all getting along and adjusting to yet another new routine. When are you home?
