IT'S A BOY!!!!

Yes!!! You read right!!!
It's Kay here...Mony's BFF!!!
And I have been given the great honour of announcing the arrival of Baby Cooper to Mony's "other family" - you guys!!!

Mony was admitted to hospital a week ago suffering a horrid kidney blockage thanks to the then "Hef" who decided to lodge himself in a very awkward position...unfortunately her kidney function did not return to normal as we had hoped and after much deliberation - it was decided that the baby would be delivered this week...

As you would all know Mony was only 32 weeks so she has spent a very anxious few days making preparations as best she could for an early delivery...she was given a course of steroids to help form a protective lining inside the the baby's lungs & make it less painful for him when he gave his first little cry...She was advised yesterday that she was booked in for a c-section & would be given an epidural block so that she could be awake for the birth...

I spent a lovely couple of hours with Mony, her Mum & her Aunty last night - and she was in great spirits...she was of course worried that little Hef was going to be 8 weeks premmie & dissappointed that she wouldn't be able to take her baby home with her like most mums do...but she was also excited about the prospect of her dream finally coming to fruition - the dream of being a Mother.

And this afternoon Mony delivered a beautiful baby boy - Cooper Tait - our little miracle boy!!! An absoulute gift from the heavens!!!

I don't have any other details to pass on at this stage other than to say that both Mony & Cooper are doing was estimated that little Cooper would probably weigh in at around 1.4 kgs (approx 3pounds), but as yet I don't have a confirmed weight or any other stats!!! Rest assured though that I will pass on all the details as soon as they come to hand...

She was so determined that you guys should all be kept up to date with what was happening - and I am so thrilled to be able to share this happy news with you all...This blog has been such a comfort to Simone, and I know that like me, many of you have laughed & cried at her beautifully written posts...sharing her often heart wrenching journey along the road to motherhood every step of the way...I would like to thank you all for the support & strength you have given her - I know it has made such a difference.

So that's all for now...I'll be back asap with all the juicy details - and maybe even some pics - if I can work out how to put them up here!!! Ha!! I'm a bit of novice at this whole blogging business!!!

Bye for now,
Aunty Kay xx

And i am beyond happy for you.

Oh Mony! Congratulations. I hope you and the little one are doing fine. I'm all teary here too. Am thinking of you and Cooper! HUGS.

Blogger LL said...

Thabk you for the update! I hope Mony recovers quickly and that Cooper will get to go home soon!

Blogger serenity said...

Congratulations. How scary, but I'm thrilled to hear that Cooper is doing well. May he continue to grow strong so you can bring him home shortly, Mony.


Blogger PCOSMama said...

Congratulations Mony and family! I'm so excited for you! I'm sorry this beautiful experience had to be countered by the fear of his early arrival, but I'm certain everything will be fine! A friend of Mine had her little boy at 27 weeks and after a short stay in the NICU he came home... now he's over a year old and is as healthy and happy as can be! Cooper will just need a little extra TLC, and I know you'll be right there with him the whole way!

Blogger Shelby said...

Congratulations!! How exciting! I'm sure it was a bit stressful, and will be for while, but sounds like things are going well!! I came by way of PCOSmama. Best of luck!!

Blogger Dramalish said...

Welcome, welcome darling Cooper! Congratulations to you and P, Mony my love. What a frightening but worthwhile ordeal... I hope your little boy grows and thrives and the NICU time passes quickly and without incident.

Hope you are feeling better soon, too.
And congrats.
He's HERE!

I had the strangest feeling something was up this week.
Mony, CONGRAULATIONS. He was obviously so keen to get out in the world to have cuddles with you. I am sure he has his mothers battler spirit and will be home with you in no time.
