Baby Beau

On Thursday we were so excited to meet our new cousin / nephew Beau.
We drove from Launceston to Hobart after Tom had finished work and went straight to the Hospital to catch a glimpse of the highly anticipated baby boy.

Baby Beau was born at 9.29am on the 20th of July and weighed in at 3.2k kilos. Poppy, Rory and Alexis have been talking about the arrival of their first cousin for months, getting updates from their Aunty about how big he was getting in her belly, sweet ultrasound photos and counting down the days until the holidays when we could go and visit.

When they laid eyes on him for the first time they all fell in love, Rory couldn't stop looking at him, stroking his little cheeks and asking for all the cuddles, telling Beau he would teach him how to play cricket when he is older.

Alexis loved listening the the little 'squeeks' Beau made as he slept, and was super keen to have a look under his beanie to see what color his hair was (brown. btw),

And Poppy was in awe of his tiny hands and plump red lips and could have sat there all day cuddling him.

Tom loved every minute of meeting his sisters new baby, he kept saying 'congratulations', 'he is such a good looking baby', and announced if we won the lottery we'd have to have more babies!

I'd forgotten how tiny newborn babies were, how they mostly sleep and feed, and soaked up the feelings Beau's Mum Sarah was having when she said things like "I could just watch him all day", "I couldn't be more in love" and "Isn't it amazing how he was in my tummy a few hours ago". Beau's Dad Dan wanted to cuddle Beau every chance he got, if Beau made the slightest noise he'd run over to make sure he was ok, and when Dan's parents came, he kept cuddling his Mum, just out of pure joy from becoming a Dad.

We're already planning our next trip to see baby Beau in a few weeks, to 'goo' and 'gah' over him some more.

Welcome to the world beautiful boy, we can not wait to see you grow and play with these three cousins of yours.
