Elle Jaye Rose welcomes 'Avalon Violet' ( affectionately 'Ava Lottie')

Many of you are aware I spent the last couple of months working on a calendar called Up the Duff Creek without a Paddle: Calendar Musings for Bewildered Mums to Be
where I vented my pregnancy growing pains into a dark humour self-help guide for pregnant ladies – that delves into all the unmentionables you are not alone mums!

Proud to announce, little Avalon Violet has entered the world – and what an entry 39 hour labour to push out a 9.8 pounder! As soon as Avalon uses her sensory motor skills to produce artwork she will no doubt have her own redbubble page :)

    congratulations elle wow ava lottie looks a bonny happy baby
    and she will be a bundle of pleasure for sure
    now doesn`t it make 9 months of inconvience
    all worth while

  • sure does Charlie – though she could have saved me the inconvenience of surgery and a blood transfusion – I am like the Chuck Norris of Childbirth after what we went through – I would have been a much better mum to her for the first groggy couple of days :)
