And they are home.

Vicky and the-child-who-we-have-to-think-of-a-name-for-but-really-ought-to-stop-calling-spadger-now-she's-out-or-it-will-stick are now in our living room.

Mum is happy.
Child is fed and slightly grizzly.
Dad is proud of them both.

It's been a big old 48 hours for us all.

I'll try again. Jamie is a girl's name too. (I'm having terrible trouble inserting HTML or anything that starts to look like it in Blog comments). Must get better.

I was going to suggest installing a voting script on the site so that Your Readership could vote on the top three choices for a name, but . . . er, maybe not.

Spadger. S-p-a-d-g-e-r. No, as much as I like it, it's gotta go. :-)

Come on we need more pics. Spadger was too bundled up in hats and tea towels to get a good look at her on her birth day. And incidentally 'Spadger' is really starting to stick you know, it's overtaken Rolan as the name of choice on the Comedy Team. You wanna watch it.

Thanks all! We're going to get things going again on this blog once various rhythms have settled down. Sleep, food etc. And I know Clare wants more photos...

Congratulations. We're due again in June. A silly question: where does that term 'spadger' come from? I've not heard it used since I was a kid, oh %$£! years ago when a family friend used to call me it.

Greetings from the noisy Drama corner.

A massive congratulations on your little Dolan.

Everyone at work has been very excited for you and waited in suspense for any news. So, a big well done from me.

It's made me quite broody.... which is serious.
