Meet Our Newest Little Cyclist: Baby Luke

We’re happy to announce that ‘TravellingTwo’ has become (unofficially, at least), ‘Travelling Three‘! Baby Luke arrived in the world on Saturday morning.

To say we’re walking on clouds would be an understatement. If the website is a bit quiet over the coming weeks, you know why. We’re doing something far more important than email and blogs. We’re getting to know our new son, and what a wonderful time we’re having.

    Thanks for all the kind comments everyone – and sorry we haven’t yet replied to them individually. We don’t have much time on the computer right now, and the majority of the time we do have is spent typing one handed (with the other hand being busy feeding, holding or entertaining Luke). Still, it’s a lovely time in our lives and life will get back to some sort of normal one day. For now, we’re just enjoying every moment 🙂
