Arrival

Simon is here!
Basics are:
He arrived after induction on the first at 2:59pm
He weighs 8lbs, 13oz and is 20.5in. (sorry my metric friends)
He's perfect and healthy and we are so thankful he is here safe.

More to come later, but thank you for all the love and support over the last 24 hours...the last year. Time for some zzzzzzz's now. Much love.

  27. Awake
    Clouds are swift
    Rocks are ancient
    Mountains are high, oceans great
    Winds are restless
    Trees are patient
    And you my child are awake

    Waves are crashing
    Rivers churning
    Planets twirling, stars ablaze
    Storms are raging
    Atoms whirling
    And you my child are awake

    CHORUS:
    To perceive these wondrous things
    To count the beats of a blackbird’s wings
    To tell a story and dance and sing

    All the splendors
    Of creation
    Are very happy that you came
    Because they needed
    Someone to see them
    And you my child are awake
    CHORUS:

    Seeds are hopeful
    Dewdrops fleeting
    Oak trees are crooked, Redwoods straight
    And they are not known
    To the sleeping
    But you my child are awake
    You my child are awake
    You my child are awake

    ( you can listen to this song here http://www.petermayer.net/music/ It's called 'Awake' and is on 'Earth Town Square'" I was thinking of Simon and got this in my head)

  36. Well done, Welcome to Simon. Us metric people know that 8lb 13oz is a big baby and he would be around 3.4kg? Well done again! Take care of yourself and enjoy him.

  37. I was wrong, he weighed just under 4kg, only just at 3.997kg, I google'd it. He should be a good sleeper then.
