And here he is…

…Edward Lewis Mason. Our newest and tiniest. Our fifth little boy. He arrived into our arms at 2.36pm yesterday, after only about four hours of labour. He is beautiful (and reminds us of all his older brothers), and we are deeply in love. I am truly thankful to God that birth went smoothly, and that Edward is here safely. What an amazing gift. I can hardly believe that I get to kiss his baby soft cheeks and stroke his perfectly formed fingers. The other three boys have been absolutely wonderful with their new youngest brother. I am so proud of each of them. I really miss not being at home with them, yet I’m also cherishing this time alone with Edward Bear at the hospital. Please know that I have read every single one of your beautiful messages, and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your love, thoughts, prayers and excitement for us.

(You guys rock.)

what a beautiful blessing, and so lovely to hear of a smooth arrival. My biggest boy’s middle name is Edward, and in those middle of the night cuddles (nowadays sneaky ruffles of his hair) he is my baby Teddy. Enjoy your rest, and these moments. :)sarah

He is a peach! Well done. My youngest is Ted (not Edward, just Ted) and often nicknamed Bear. It is an excellent choice :)

I’ve got a terrible feeling you’re going to make me really broody with all these beautiful pictures!

Oh Ronnie, he is amazing. Thank you for sharing. I don’t know you personally, but I love reading all about your family, and have eagerly been anticipating song this little man. Ok I just reread that and I sound like a stalker. I assure you I’m not!!! But it’s testament to your raw, honest and open writing style. Enjoy every second of alone time while you can. But yes, your big boys will be all over him when you’re home, which will create even more beautiful memories. X
