I have a son.

July 23, 2006 at 8:13 am | Posted in family | 12 Comments

He’s perfect.

Linzi woke at 7.55am with cramps. We called her mother at 8.15. We left for the hospital at 8.45, arrived at 9.00. Her waters broke in the car. Jack was born at 9.13 am…yes, 13 minutes after we arrived.

Everything is fine, and mummy and my boy are both home already (Sunday evening, 12 hours later).

Today has been an emotional rollercoaster, and I am drained in every way possible. We have a wonderful, beautiful, healthy baby boy. Thank God.

I’ll post properly soon. I can hardly type right now, so here’s some pics of Jack. We named him after Linzi’s father.

To you he probably looks like any other squishy newborn. That doesn’t matter; I love him with all my heart. Like when Erin was born, I couldn’t stop crying, but I don’t care.

I’m so happy.

  12. summer: Thanks alot, turns out I’ve been busy for two whole weeks, but back to work now, so back to blogging too!

    michael: TYVM mate!

    howard: Cheers, young sprout!

    beckie: Thanks alot, we’re all delighted things have gone so smoothly!

    fhl: Thanks. As Randy from American Idol says, he is the bomb. 😉

    sandie: He’s handsome, isn’t he? Must’ve got it from his mother…

    beckie: No worries. I thought maybe you were drunk.

    And it’s true…even though he’s far bigger than Erin was when she was born, I still can’t believe how tiny and weightless he is after dealing with a toddler for so long.

    big mama: Thanks a million – I’ll sort out more pics as soon as I can…monitor broken at home means limited PC access at the moment. Grrr.

    jennie: I wrote that because I know what it’s like when people are forced to say something nice about kids just because they feel they have to…and so i understand why my kid doesn’t excite everyone else as much as he does me. So thank you.

    michael: Working myself up to it…

    CP: Thanks alot, and welcome. Hope to see more of you around here. 🙂
