Home with Little Boo

We’re home with our precious little girl! I am so exhausted and slightly delirious. I have 1 hour and 9 minutes before her next feed (if I’m lucky) so I had better go and have a nap, but in the mean time, here’s a little pic of Amelia at one day old. I am especially crazy about her disco hair (which you can’t see in this photo, more photos to follow soon). Thank you for all the lovely comments and warm wishes. My dad printed them out and brought them into the hospital for me and I will be sure to add them to Amelia’s time capsule.

    can I recommend a great book to have by your bedside? Baby Love by Robin Barker – this Aussie knows her stuff and I found it an invaluable, down-to-earth guide to everything about the first tumultuous year of parenthood.

    love your site, thanks for sharing your journey.

  64. Beautiful baby! Congratulations! Hope everything is going well and you are managing to get a LITTLE rest, at least. BTW, the url isn’t mine, just a great childrens’ book site I wandered into today with my almost-4-or-possibly-very-short-26-year-old today.

  65. she’s lovely, claire! and amelia’s a great name.

  66. Oh, she’s so beautiful! Congratulations! And what a lovely name. :)Hope you’re managing to get a little rest!

    congrats again!

  73. You’re lucky I have no idea where you live or else I might have to become a kidnapper just so I could have her. She’s gorgeous. I love her name, also. πŸ™‚

  90. celina@kindofblue.com says:

    i may be mistaken, but i do believe that could be your nose, clair πŸ˜‰
    although it’s hard to really judge considering i don’t believe i’ve ever seen a photo of Big P. in the years (since diaryland!) that i’ve been reading you.

    does this mean you may treat us to some family pics so we can oggle, ooh, and ahh and compare? *hopehope*

    congratulations and thank you so much for letting us into this new facet to your life – i was so worried it would turn into the MTV’s Brandy Baby Diary series where we watched every week up until the birth and we never got to see the baby’s face!

    Hope to hear all about the exciting birth and homecoming!

  91. cristobalina20@yahoo.com says:

    Your daughter is so beautiful! Congratulations, and it’s true what they say, enjoy her as much as you can and spend as much time as you can with her because they grow up so fast, that if you blink you’ll miss something.Congratulations again.

  92. femmeinist@hotmail.com says:

    she’s beautiful!!

  93. congratulations on your lovely new daughter!

  94. claire, i’m sure you’re positively too exhausted to read well-wish number 96, but Amelia Joan is positively adorable!
    My prediction for 2020: with that angelic face, and the disco hair you mention and we can only get a peek of, Amelia will grow up to be a supermodel/rockstar and you’ll be drawing and designing record covers in 18 years time!

  95. Just lovely. Congratulations to the family.
