Luke is here!

I will post a more elaborate entry at some point in the near future when I have more than a few moments of free time. There’s a lot to post. The labour was full of drama. I passed out with the flu the morning that our son was to be born. We were told that our local maternity unit was closed for the first time in its history sending us on a 30 mile detour while Debbie’s contractions were coming every two minutes and her waters had gone.

Thankfully, I witnessed the perfect birth of our son and the most important thing of all went very well. It was a relatively calm experience with just the one midwife in a nice delivery room with the lights dimmed down low. The memory will live with me forever.

Luke Kian Matthew Mecham
Born at 3:53 on 13th March weighing 6lb 11oz.

You will always be short of time now Luke is here ;) The older they get the more things they have that need to be prepared on a daily basis… But I wouldn’t change her for the world.

Luke was the exact same weight as my little one!

You are right about the labour, that is one experience that you will never ever forget!

Glad to hear everything worked out alright in the end!

Must apoloyise if my last post put a negative tilt on things, There are many, many, many things to look forward to as you get to know and watch your baby grow.

I wouldn’t change anything for the world.
