I’m writing this from my hospital bed to let you know that my little Makybe Diva arrived safely late yesterday afternoon.
It’s a boy!
And we’ve called him Quincy George Robinson. You may want to sit down for this next bit. He weighed in at 4.1kg (at 36 weeks and 6 days!) and is 53 cm long.
How did we end up with the name Quincy? Good question. One of Brad’s friends suggested it just recently and when I looked up the meaning of the name it meant “Fifth Son” or “Estate of the 5th son” … which I decided was serendipity since this little boy was my fifth (and last) pregnancy. Seriously, I think my womb is already trying to get lawyered-up.
Here are a couple of rather grainy photos of me with Q … but I just wanted to thank all of you for your support, encouragement and cheer-squad like behaviour since I told you I was pregnant again. Your faith and comforting words has helped me through this pregnancy more than you could know.
