Outnumbered but happy

At 23:48 yesterday (Tuesday 19th) Hannah Lauren Rous came into this world weighing in 7 pounds 8.5 ounces and measuring 51 cms long. It all happened a bit quick as at 5pm contractions were kind of going but about 20 minutes apart. We got to Forth Park Hospital just before 9pm by which time we were at 4 minutes. Just short of three hours later, and another life was begun. So now its 3 against 1 as far as the female:male ratio goes in our house. Still, I couldn't be happier as Hannah is gorgeous and is adored not only by Carol-Anne and I, but by Big Sister Kathryn too.

Hey there...

Big congrats from the Mathie family. She's gorgeous -- bet you are glad she takes after her mother!!!

Get used to the 3 against 1... even my dog is a lassie.

Love you all

Thanks Chris - great to see you itching for a cuddle!!

And thanks Thomas. Yep, Hannah does take after her mum -- how much our families have in common!! :)

Was advised by a midwife to get a male dog to redress the balance!!! Will just have to get a mens fellowship going instead I think!!!!

Thanks for all your thoughts and comments. More pics added to the Flickr link and there'll be loads more to come of course!
