Contractions built very quick called hospital 4ish insisted was hectic they said ok come 5 or call when minute long called quarter to 5 drove in clear run took mum up painful by then quick talked her out of pethadine aversion (wasn't hard by then) midwife ok but will just see where you up to first this about 6 she "oh.. nope, you're gonna have a baby right now" right now means just over an hour later but it was better then beloved's confirmed once she pushing it wasn't so painful just a mammoth effort from the woman I worship bub crowning by about 7 obsto arrived 7.20ish smooth delivery in an almightly flood of water at 7.42am mum and dad have a bawl and start loving little bear and it hasn't stopped and she is the most beautiful thing I've ever shared a solar system with.

Back to clean catst stuff and feed them and give them a bit of cloth with bear smell (and arent' THEY intrigued!?) gotta go more soon...

Congrats indeed! And I echo Cristy's call for picys.

Hopefully we're not far behind, then the cyber playgroup can kick off...

Beautiful. So happy for you. I'm crying a bit too (a tear just dripped onto an 1833 edition of Pride and Prejudice belonging to the Mitchell Library, heh)

And I'm very pleased to see the kitties cracked a mention in this most auspicious landmark posting.

Well, aren't you a clever boy! Congratulations, old son, and all the best to your wife who did 99.9999% of the work and for the year 2007.

Make the most of kids while they're young because they tend to grow up and sometimes they do not quite turn out as parents had hoped.

Cheers!

Hoorah! Makes me feel all teary to think of it. Congratulations to you all. I'm so glad it all went well.

Zoe said...

It's quite a full on experience, isn't it?

Glad to hear all are well. Oh, and PICTURES!! And do you have a name for her yet?

WoooooooHooooooooooo!!

Pavlov's Cat said...

Fantastic, I'm glad all went well.

I look forward to the 'Bub Meets Cats' post.

russ said...

Excellent news, congratulations to the whole family.

Helena said...

I'm with Pavlov above -
after you so thoughtfully 'scented' the cats with Bear,
and given that the cats normal diet is filet of freshly caught salmon,
I am just hoping
they don't think she is
some damn SNACK fer chrissakes.

rob m said...

Yes, congratulations.

I'd swear by that post they'd also given *you* a shot of pethidine, but anyway :)

Personally, I reckon they're more fun when they can a) go to the toilet without assistance, and b) talk back, but I'm sure the ride will be a joyful one.

Congratulations to you and the missus.

Good work.
