The Kiwi Baby Has Arrived!

posted in: Large Family, Travel | 11

Adalia is home and resting well. I am so thankful to be here to help her through these first few days and weeks. Percy decided to arrive early on in my trip, just two days after I arrived. This means we have plenty of time to hang out before I need to head home. Percival the Kiwi baby is here! Percival the Kiwi baby is here! Percival the Kiwi baby is here!

Percival Darcy made his way earthside just two days before his due date and in plenty of time for Grandma to hold and cuddle him.

Percival the Kiwi baby is here!

Percival is a big boy weighing in at 8 pounds 3 ounces. I would tell you how long he was, except they never measured him after he was born.

Really.

After a few days in the hospital, Adalia and Percy are home and resting. Ben runs his own farrier business so there is only so much time he can take off. Thankfully, his sister, Claire, is here helping out as well.

Which is a good thing since I am terrified of driving on the left side of the road.

I am so, so, glad that the timing worked out so perfectly. I was here long enough to get two night’s sleep and rest up before the big day.

This is Percy mid-sneeze. See photo below for the exciting conclusion!Percival the Kiwi baby is here! Percival the Kiwi baby is here! Percival the Kiwi baby is here!

Percy is obviously the cutest kiwi baby EVER.

Happy Thanksgiving, to all of my American friends.

I am sure I don’t need to tell you what I am thankful for this year.
