introducing Hugo

I can't quite believe that my son, Hugo George Pauley, was born 12 days ago. It feels like I've known every little minute part of him forever. I understand him and he knows who I am, responding to my voice. We have of course been creating a bond for 9 months, but I didn't really feel the bond with him fully until he was born. He's completely content with both Adi and I and there is a trust between us all, our little family.

The moment I looked down and saw him for the first time was indescribable. He didn't seem real and I couldn't believe just how tiny and delicate he was, yet at the same time how he could fit inside of me. It's a crazy feeling that we created him, a real human being! I thought I would cry, but I often don't in happy emotional situations. I just had an overwhelming feeling of love and protection and was on cloud nine, knowing that he was perfectly healthy.

Looking at him was like I'd known him forever. I wouldn't change a tiny detail and he was just perfect. He has a good head of hair which looks like it has been styled, neat ears, a cute button nose and long curly eyelashes like his father. His lip folds underneath with full lips like his dad's too. He's tall with strong hands and long legs ready to be filled out. His complexion is just peachy and he has a dimple forming on his right cheek - although perhaps not to rival mine. In every way he's just edible - a word that Adi doesn't like but many agree with me is normal as he's just scrumptious.

You can't help but try to compare him to Adi, myself and other family members - he's a little mini-Adi at the moment, but I can't wait to watch his features develop and see who Hugo becomes.
