Well, on Thursday 8th May at 3.30pm after a marathon of pre-labour absolute pain that started early Tuesday morning, our first son, Ronin Gordon was born!
Weighing in at 3.16kgs (6.9lbs) this tiny little fella is a hell of a lot stronger than I could have imagined! Holding his head up and checking out what people were doing and saying as little as 2 hours later, and having one hell of a grip and kick, this kid is amazing.
He has my long fingers (ready to play guitar!
), and his feet are already pretty big, so he is probably going to be pretty tall too as he grows up.
We're over the moon, although the missus is having a tough time. The lengthy pre-labour really exhausted her, and she's trying to recover as best she can so. We are definitely getting there though. Last night was our first real good sleep for all, with only one wake up in the night for a feed.
This is such a buzz, more than I ever thought.
