Emile wore his first non pajama clothing today and all of a sudden looks so much older. Later he donned his Kermit/Lachlan costume to go trick or treating. As you can tell, he was thrilled...

Parade of Visitors Part I

Emile proved to be very popular and we had a steady stream of visitors starting the day after he was born.

It all began with the two of us...

You knew us previously as Marina and Raffi, cute urban couple waiting to become suburban parents. One week after the above photo was taken we grew into a family of three.
Meet Emile:

He arrived on Sunday September 21 at 1:17pm born at home in our bed. Raffi and Abi Esther were on hand during the delivery cheering me on as Emile pushed his way into the world.

He was very alert.

And very sleepy.

Abi Esther got the first cuddle.

Followed closely by Aunty Claudia.

Daddy finally got his mitts on him later that evening.

We all slept really well that night.
