A Thousand Apologies

It has been soooOoo long, I am so sorry for not updating more often.
The last few weeks have been so very hectic, there have been deaths, births, and massive changes afoot in the Hoola Household, at times, it has been extremely overwhelming.

Before I continue, I want to extend my apologies to those of you who have emailed, I will respond soon, promise! Also to those of you who are STILL waiting for swaps, you have not been forgotten! Also those of you who have sent me sweet treats, I will include you all in my next update. And Jacky, I am SO sorry, your package is sat here on my desk STILL, I haven't forgotten you either!

I will be back shortly with more of the news, but here is what I suspect you have all been waiting for...

On the 14th of September at 12:26AM after a 2 hour labour and just ONE push, our little baby girl arrived weighing 2.9kg.....

We named her Bluebelle, in keeping with our nature theme for the children's names, a sister for Amber and Hazel, 3 girls, oh my!
I should note that she WAS called Bluebell (without the E), but Papa Simon registered the birth and we all know men are crap at spelling!

My little fairy baby even has perfect pixie ears, look!

More photos and mucho news to follow, a million thank you's to you all for your patience and love <3

  8. How wonderful! Congratulations!

    I understand spelling mistakes, my name was Talitha, until the nurse thought my mom's handwritting said Tabitha. Everyone that visited saw Tabitha so I stayed that.

  23. what a gorgeous baby! I have a son only 2 weeks younger than her!

  24. I stumbled upon your pictures in Flickr which lead me here!

    So, let me first congratulate you on your beautiful daughter! She's a cutie! :o)

    Second, I'm in love with your dotees... Would you consider doing a swap with me (I'm also in France). I could knit a cute hat for Bluebelle...

    Let me know...I'm on swap-bot under the same name - ninou!

    Happy Holidays! :o)

  25. *sigh*
    I love baby photos.
    Congratulations. She is beautiful.

  26. I don't know you, I just happened upon your blog as I fell into the blog searching abyss, but the baby is just smooshy and precious and gorgeous and obviously the "e" was supposed to be there... that's how good "stuff happens". And now she has a funny story to tell about her papa. Those are just the best baby cheeks ever! Well along with my kids baby cheeks.. but they are old now..although my 33 year old boy still has great pinchy cheeks.. :o)

  27. Congratulations! She's beautiful, and I love her name!

  28. Hi there Tallulah,

    Just wanted to pop in and say hi (we miss your quirky posts). Hope all is going well your side of the world and little Blubelle is enjoying the French summer. I have been watching the Tour de France so you have been in my thoughts.
