Say hello.

At 3:41am today, Vicky gave birth to an 8lb 2oz baby girl.


This picture above was taken when she was about 15 minutes old.

No name yet - we're trying to work out what she ought to be now we've met her. Until then, 'spadger' is still sticking.

Labour, when it finally came was extremely fast and hard - Vicky was in a lot of pain, but there wasn't time to get her on the scale of medication she needed. And as Gas-and-Air didn't agree with her the poor thing ended up doing the whole thing clean. The final push lasted about 40 minutes. Ow.

But none of that matters now. We've got a beautiful tall (52cm) baby girl, who has already had two feeds, and Vicky will be home tomorrow afternoon at last.

More pics in a second.

Fan-bloody-tastic! Well done both of you - what a marathon.

And a girl - girls are SO much better - trust me.

Shit - I'm blubbing again - what is it with me and kids...
