So at 6:27pm on Thursday, December 11th, Otis Roger Edwin Campbell was born in Shanghai, China.
He is beautiful.
I don’t mind admitting I cried my eyes out when I saw him.
Mind you, so did he when he saw me … though, I suspect for different reasons than the overwhelming joy I was feeling.
Regardless, achieving ‘like father, like son’ status within 3 seconds of entering the World is, in my eyes, still pretty impressive.
He is well.
Mum is well.
Grandma is well.
I … well, I am traumatised and don’t even get me started on how Rosie is feeling.
In all honesty, this is mindblowingly mental-amazing.
I am totally and utterly in awe. And in love.
Oh, and you’ll be happy to know he came too early for our insurance payola which is why I got my own back by doing this as our official ‘birth’ announcement.
He’s now got 18 years to get his revenge and I’m already looking forward to every single day of it.
Guess this means the next chapter of my life has officially begun.
[Though I hope Jill has still got me a cool gadget for Christmas!]
