It’s a boy!



Introducing the newest member of our family – little baby ‘Rocky’. He was born at 8:06am on Wednesday, 6 March 2013, weighing 8 pounds, 4 ounces (3.7kg) and 50 cm long. The birth story will come later – for now I will just say that we are so very, very grateful for his safe arrival, for his good health and relaxed temperament (hello! I’m writing a blog post in hospital right now!). We are absolutely in love with him.

Why Rocky? It goes with Pebble!

Why Pebble? When Paul and I first bought our house together our friends christened it “The Rockgarden” – a mash up of my maiden name and our family name. The name stuck (and also became the name of a blog). When Pebble was conceived one of our friends nicknamed my baby bump ‘Pebble’. It just made sense to keep using that name for our daughter on the blog.

It’s been trickier trying to force a  name on our newborn son. I think nicknames are much more fun when they occur naturally – but I needed to choose something, so Rocky it is. Thanks to those who gave their suggestions on Facebook and Instagram :) ‘Bam Bam’ was a cute option, and ‘The Rock’ and ‘Rocco’.

I had better sign off for now because it will be time to feed and I’m feeling ever so sleeeeeepy from the pain killers that the nurse gave me a few moments ago!

I can’t wait to share more about our little Rocky – and how our little Pebble is smitten with him.
