Introducing.... Morgan William Knight

All together now....

AAAAAAAWWWWW!


Isn't he a stunner? I would have loved to get a closer shot of his face, but his eyes work so I don't want to blind the little sweetie. And he was so good all the time we were there too! Even if he did do a huge poo while I was holding him, lol!

We called into the neo natal suit just after 12 today to visit Jill, Gary and Baby Morgan for the first time. He'll be a week old tomorrow. Poor Jill has been sent home for the first time last night and Morgan has to stay in the hospital for now as he is still quite light and has lost a little weight too, hence the tube up his little nose there. She is finding it understandably hard. I mean, ok i don't have kids, but I do understand that when you have a child you want to bring them home with you when you leave the hospital, not leave them behind! She's also finding the sleep deprevation hard too, as they come in every three hours through the night to feed him, and are there with him all day too.

Having said all that though, all three of them seem to be doing brilliantly! Gary was telling us having a child for the first time is like someone taking your soul out, and handing it to your child, saying "here, this is yours now", that the love you feel is that powerful. Jill is still coming to terms with the fact that you don't get your figure back in an instant and is mortified that she is still wearing her maternity wear, but seems to be loving being a mother. I think it suits her! She said that the fears she had of not feeling maternal are all forgotten! And she went into great detail about the birth, and the ways and hows of the C Section she had to have - ergh! That was not pleasent listening, lol, but it's a fact of life!

We stopped for about 2 hours, I could have stayed there and held him all day! He's such a goreous wee thing! He only cried when he was getting his nappy changed, which is fair enough, and it was so sweet seeing gary panic over a small amout of redness round Morgan's bum bits while the nurse said "there's nothing wrong, he doesn't look sore", hee hee hee!


LOOK - I'M HOLDING A BABY! CAN I HAVE ONE? PLEASE?

Could I look any happier or any more smitten??

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on
