Beren Argyle Sims
born 10.01am, Wednesday April 8th
3840g (8 lbs 7 oz) 51cm

as we drove to the hospital there was a 
rainbow in the sky, a promise I thought,
of what's to come

after three and half hours 
of oh-so intense labouring
we met our beloved son -

dark haired 
just as we'd dreamed,
healthy as an ox,
and lovely in every way



  1. Congratulations! to all of you! He is absolutely beautiful...a perfect little angel. I adore his dark hair! Get lots of sleep, treat yourself well and most of all, enjoy this time.

    I can't wait to read about your new days and new family. xo

  2. Oh i am so happy to read this and see such beautiful photos. Have been thinking about you. Congratulations, what a wonderful little boy, much love xxx

  9. Warm Congratulations, he has a handsome face and beautiful hair, like yours. You must be immensely proud. I know he is sleeping in this photograph but he looks to be a calm soul. My own brunette child was a cheeky pixie who grew to have a bright sense of humour that matches his twinkling eyes. It will be a lovely experience for you to see little Beren's personality unfold and how nice for Reuben (also a gorgeous child) to have a dear brother enter his life.

    Joyous blessings x


  10. Congratulations. He's a perfect little man. I drop by this space every so often to be I inspired by you beautiful words, artwork and artistry in life in general.
