A joyful addition..
« on: August 24, 2007, 11:05:01 PM »
Hi,

i mentioned this on the IRC channel and now i making a parallel announcement in the forums. i haven't done this before so this might sound off-key a bit.. anyway, here goes.. :)

We are delighted to announce the birth of our little princess. She was born on Wednesday (22nd August 2007) at about 12.45am, weighing at 3.31kg. The mother and baby are safely at home and we are going through our shortlist to pick a name.

I planned to include a photo of the baby with this announcement but decided to wait until she's a bit older. :)

Thank you. :)

That is just fantastic!  :Thmbsup:  :Thmbsup:  :Thmbsup:

This'll be one of the biggest and best changes in your lives: I'm constantly amazed how kids have the uncanny ability to get in under your skin... such a different kind of love.

I love the Lanux Expansion Pack  ;D  ;D  ;D Your Bio may have to wait 18 or so years until you get some time back again  ;)

Take care, take time and have lots of fun!

Babies... But only when we're not sleeping: they have a natural reaction to parental sleep which is to either become wide awake and/or be discomforted by something or other ;)

The secret is to sleep when the baby isn't looking.  :-\

Congratulations - great news ...

I nearly said well done, but then realised that your part in the proceedings didn't take much effort (or sacrifice), so well done to your wife ;) (oh go on and to you too).

Where are the photos then?

Hmmm, three kids at home... while they're babies, it's quite easy to handle them, but once they hit the four years mark... well, wait and see ;D. Maybe you should ask Cody if he could act as a babysitter once in a while, I'm sure he will entertain the kids :D

Congrats again!

yes, my 4 year old throws up a big ruckus every morning claiming he is too sleepy to go to the nursery/kindergarten.. but when back at home, he's all excited to tell about his day at school.. :)

That's just the beginning guys... nursery / preschool is where they conspire and devise plans to drive mom and dad insane. Watch out!
