Home again!!!! Well 2 weeks ago.....

Well we made it home on the 2nd December and it was amazing to get back here.. Harry was perect on the flight and had a couple of little cries but really nothing to speak of, the air stewardesses on the flight were great and definitely had lots of questions and enjoyed admiring our little man. It almost felt like Harry's Second birth when we got home and it was so nice to finally be back in our own environment... The first couple of days were difficult as we had already established a routine in India that really only involved our little boy and just relaxing, no food preparation and no housework... But we are well and truly into the swing of everyday life now.

We had no real issues with Harry's paperwork and all went well, we found that the biggest wait was for his birth certificate and once we submitted everything on the Tuesday to the Australian High Commission we were at the FRRO the following Tuesday and flying out on Wednesday.

We are now just enjoying being at home and in awe at how blessed we are to be fathers, we truly are grateful to India, our surrogate mum, ROTUNDA and Hiranandani Hospital for everything that they have allowed us to have and the care that was taken in looking after our baby boy!!!

For now we are just looking forward to Christmas, Wills mum arriving from England in January to see our little man and watching the change each day brings...

Take care have a wonderful christmas and we will keep you posted....
