Arrival of a second Mini Mills
Freida Daisy Mills, born May 3rd 2011
I've been very shy of the interwebs just lately. Not really looked at them much for the last two weeks. Why? Well, I've been busy with the little people. Nope, don't go reaching for the phone to call the asylum - I'm referring to my lovely kids.
My third little bundle of innocence and happiness, Freida Daisy Mills, arrived at 1.32pm on May 3rd 2011. 10 days late, I may add. We were waiting with baited breath for her to dain to show up, but were starting to think that she was way too comfy in the womb, and was gonna leave it until high school time before coming out.
She did however give us the signal in good time. My son Gabriel and I worked tirelessly into the night to blow up the home birthing pool (we did it the same way again, as it had worked so well for Elva's birth) and fill it with water to the correct temperature. And once we were done, Kirsty was only sat in it for 20 minutes before Freida came out!
Needless to say, she is absolutely beautiful, and the whole family are totally overjoyed with our new addition. See below for pics!
Other exciting things that happened on May 3rd through history:
- 1616: William Shakespeare dies
- 1791: Halley records total solar eclipse (the last one visible from London for an estimated 900 years)
- 1903: Bing Crosby born
- 1959: Ben Elton born
- 1978: First ever spam e-mail sent

Freida being an archetypal sleeping babe...
...and then being a lot less chilled, after being woken up when hungry!
Freida with her proud big brother...
...and looking far too cute with her sister!
