Today Was The Day

Hi Everyone,

Today was the day.  We just manged to get Melissa before to hospital before she gave birth.   Which is crazy as we only live 4mins from the hospital.  Her entire labour was only 1hr 25mins.

Flynn arrived at 1050 and was 7.14 pounds or 3.56kg.   It was an awesome feeling seeing another boy coming out.  Photos and a better story to follow.  Amazingly Flynn was asleep within 2mins of being born and has pretty much slept most of the day.

Right now its time to go to sleep.

      Hi Mark,

      Thank you very, very much. Just heard from Melissa again (I’m at home looking after Xavier), Flynn is still sleeping dare I say it like a baby?

      Hi Rod,

      One or two complications but all is going well. Thank you for asking. Will you be stopping off in Perth for a quick hello on your way to Karijini?
