My wife gave birth to our first child yesterday. He's called Ryan, and weighed in at 6lbs 7oz, and was 1 week early.
My wife had a traumatic labour, and the wee man was eventually delivered in theatre with forceps to turn him around, as the midwifes didn't know he was in the wrong position. Still, she didn't need a C Section in the end! He did however, look like he had gone 10 rounds with Mike Tyson, as you can see from the pictures below - although he's already healing up really well.
He is doing well, but is in the Special Care Unit as he's having a few issues with controlling his blood glucose levels. We hope to have him out of there in the next day or so.
Delighted and exhausted - we think he's beautiful - picture below.
