THE PARENTS: Mum Paula Harvey (36) is from Reddingmuirhead and works as a pharmacist, while dad Dean McPherson (38), also from Reddingmuirhead, is an area manager for Ladbrokes. Theo is the couple’s second child with Jude (2) having also appeared in the Baby of the Week column.
THE PREGNANCY: Paula was busy looking after Jude and admitted to being much more tired this time around.
THE BIRTH: Although Paula’s labour may have been exceptionally quick, little Theo had fluid in his lungs and required to stay in neonatal care for a couple of days.
THE BABY: Not one for sleeping through the night quite yet, Theo is otherwise a happy, smiling wee baby.
THE NAME: Since Theo was born on his birthday, football fan Dean got to pick his name.
THE GRANDPARENTS: Theo is the second grandchild of Tommy and Irene Harvey of Redding and the fifth grandchild of John and Linda McPherson of Falkirk.
THANKS: The couple thank the Poppy Team and the nurses of the neonatal ward.
