Catriona Rose Rutter (aka Katie) at 3 days old
Katie was born last Wednesday 7th September. We are all so delighted to have her in the family. She is already showered in love and cuddles from her big brothers and sister (although in honesty I should mention that, while they think she is wonderful, Angus burst into tears when he was told he had a sister and Islay has been rather demanding for the last couple of days – hardly surprising since she has lost her baby status and is very tired from starting school a month ago – Finn is just very proud to be an even bigger brother).
John and I are so very very pleased and relieved that she is here safe and sound. I know I have been very anxious for the last 9 months, and over the last few weeks of the pregnancy I started worrying more and more again, and that John has found it difficult too – but the end result, after our losses which we will never forget, is our perfect little girl. We are very lucky.
I’ll try and get back into the swing of things over the next week or two but at the moment I’m just enjoying my 10 day old wee girl and, of course, the rest of our family of six!
