cheery news chez nous

It’s been feeling like we’re just starting to get the hang of being parents. We’ve pretty much ushered Hugh through babyhood into toddler-hood unscathed (he still has two of everything he should have two of, five of everything he should have five of, four of everything he should have four of, and one of everything he should have one of).

So, we might as well kick it up a notch.

    Thankyou all. By the way, I’m not telling people at work yet but reckoning on the fact that anybody with a work connection who reads this blog is our close friend anyway and won’t mind continuing to keep the news under their hats!

    Mairi, I thought of continuing with ‘Shrimp’ or similar, but this baby is already quite different to Hugh and I didn’t want a nickname that would imply a secondary version of the same. So I came up with Sprout and imposed it unilaterally (fortunately Ken doesn’t seem to object). It is intended to imply a little, growing thing. I was thinking of the way an embryo at a certain stage looks like a little shoot uncurling.
