October has been the most important month ever!
Last week Friday the 25th of October (Shona's 30th birthday) at fourteen minutes past six in the evening, our little boy Francis was born, weighing in at a healthy 6lbs 10oz. With big blue eyes and a full head of silver blonde hair he immediately won our hearts. Shona, Samwise and I couldn't be happier. Our lives have changed dramatically, and we're enjoying every second with our little guy, even if it's at 3 in the morning. We're over the moon.
OCTOBER WAS FUN.
Samwise went viral... like for reals.
It's important to practise what you preach once in a while. I decided to combine two of the most powerful topics (food & animals) on social media together for Samwise's birthday and this is what it looked like. In total across all social media channels it was viewed over 11 million times!
