Birthdays Galore!

Early on Tuesday morning, we were delighted to support this incredible mama as she welcomed her speedy little boy into the world at home. Not quite enough time to fill the pool, but all snuggled up on the sofa afterwards to get to know each other.
A first homebirth for the family and triple birthday celebrations for all the years ahead as this little one shares the day with his Grandma and his big brother!! And let’s give huge credit to this mama for creating this cake for her birthday boys πŸŒŸπŸŽ‰
