Thanks Guys, I just got home from the hospital and the news is already up.

It was a difficult birth and they ended up giving her a caeserian after she had done all the hard work.
10 Lb bouncing baby boy. Aidan Rhys McCarroll.
And he has a decent set of lungs. :D

Sam -

That's big !

No wonder they took the caesarian route !

If she told them she was having more children, they could have put a zip in, instead of stitches !

Congrats, old mate.

Yes Colin he is a big fella. They let her go to long. 12 days over. He was a bit overdone! She had nearly no fluid left around him.

All's well now though.
