It's official, I'm a dad!

On Thursday, 18th March 2010 I became a very proud and humbled father to my first son Oscar. Weighing in at 3.375kg (7lb 6oz) and measuring 50cm he came into the world at 4:06pm with full credit going to his patient and very brave mother.

So the past two weeks have been one hell of an adventure. You really get an idea of how much sleep your body can run on when you are up countless times after midnight. You also see how quickly they grow. When he was born his right eye was a little swollen from the experience, and he opened it seldom. Now it's wide open (with the other) inquisitively taking in everything around.

Since being home he's also gained 600g (21oz), after losing 300g (10.5oz) in the first few days, which, I'm told, is perfect for a 2 week old to start putting their weight back on. So everything is going well, mum and dad are enjoying every moment and are very proud of their new son.
