Happy New Mum!

Meet Orson! Cute huh? This is one of the first ever pics of him smiling. I never understood why new mums banged on so much about their baby's first smile but can now attest that it is indeed a big deal and a moment that can make your month.
He was born on the 5th of November at 2.38am and he's now 7 wks old. It's been an interesting 7 weeks - so much to learn on my part but it's starting to feel easier now. He seems to be inching towards being more settled and I feel more chilled... and that's got to be a good thing.

The "journey" (to borrow from cheesy reality TV parlance) began back in February when young Orson was conceived in Paris after a very memorable meal at restaurant Chez L'Ami Louis. I can't say it was a cheap meal but it sure was delicious. Fois gras, roast chicken, salad and fries and a rich chocolate cake... nothing fussy, just great French food. Is it any wonder a cool little man like this was created after such fare?
