Reuben and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our precious son, Jude Arlo! Our gorgeous boy came into the world at 12.50pm on March 25, weighing 6lb 12oz. He wasn’t due until April 10 but due to complications, I was induced early at 37 weeks and 5 days. We are both perfectly healthy and doing very well now.
It’s hard to believe our little guy is two weeks old already. Every day since his birth I have meant to come here and share the news of his arrival, but the time has flown by in a blur of night feeds, cloth nappies and newborn snuggles. We are so in love with our boy and so very thankful for every second with him. Even in the tough moments, when I’ve been tired, sore, overwhelmed and worried, my heart has been so full of love and gratitude. It may sound cliche, but I don’t think I’ve ever felt so deeply content. Becoming Jude’s mama has felt like arriving home, at last.
I’m not sure what the future holds for House of Humble or when I’ll get back to regular posting now that our world has been turned upside down (in the most wonderful way!) but in the meantime I’ll be sharing far too many baby pictures over on Instagram, if you’re interested. Thanks for sticking with us and coming back to this space even when we’ve been absent, thanks for being a part of the little community over here and thanks for all of your kind wishes for Jude. I hope you are well!
With love from our little family to yours,
