G’day all this is the hubby speaking,
Fran woke me up at 4am this morning to inform me that the contractions were serious and that we’d better get moving. We arrived at the hospital at around 5pm (long shower to wake me up, sorry Fran).
Contractions kept coming on stronger, culminating in the baby being born on 23/09/2006 at 8:14am, 3.96 kgs (8 pounds 12 ounces). She managed to soldier through the birth without any drugs and no stitches.
Fran & baby are doing well and resting in the hospital. The other 3 kids are very excited, especially after seeing the birth video. It grossed out Meg, but Holly and Jess were very impressed.
So well done Fran! Congratulations on finally getting that baby out! And welcome to the world and our family Amy Clare.
And of course, there’s heaps more photos in the gallery. So be warned…
