Max's first photo… to Max John Miaoulis, born at 11:51 this morning – 7 pounds 6 ounces of perfect.

I have lots more to say, obviously, but I also have a gorgeous baby boy to stare at, so I know you’ll all forgive me for the quick update: Max and I are both doing well, though, and Terry and I are absolutely besotted with our new arrival, so I’m sure there’ll be plenty of photos in the days to come!

  27. Congratulations, Amber and Terry. Max is gorgeous! I’m very sorry to hear about Terry’s Mum. I’ve been following your blog on and off for a few months now, after finding it by accident. You have a great mix of articles and I sympathise about your anxiety issues, but the way you write about them is absolutely hilarious. You do know yourself. Anyway, congratulations again, and parenthood is the wonderfullest (I know), scariest, funniest thing, and I hope you enjoy every moment of it. Dawn
