First born

Blogging will be patchy over the next few days as my son was born at 4.38 am this morning.

Busy times ahead no doubt and as soon as he is home, I will be continuing to blog as normal, but during the more twilight hours perhaps.

Update: Back from the hospital. It has all been a bit of a trauma, but everything is alright now. I certainly have a few tails to tell about the stresses on NHS maternity departments,

Baby Harry is 5 weeks premature, so it was a bit of surprise, but both he and mum are fine.

Nich, Many congratulations to you and your other half. Take it from a two-time father, you will need to sleep during any spare time you have! Good luck!

May I offer my sincere congratulations.

One trusts that Mother and Son are both well. Well done.

David Anthony said...

Congratulations! Life will never be the same again... ;)

Many congrats!

Mother and baby doing fine?
Names?
Weight?
Temperature of the birthing pool?

C'mon Nich you will have to get used to answering the same questions over and over again...

Congratulations to all three of you!

Oldest cliche in the book - but the world is never the same after your first child ... well whatever happens to shock you into realising there is a whole new human here. For me it was when my son looked into my eyes ten seconds after being born, and again next morning when I woke up to realise there were three of us in the bedroom.

Congrats. Two pieces of advice from somebody who has been there - sleep when you can and get used to suspicious stains!

Nice one Nich. Many happy returns. Before you know it, he’ll have his own Blog!

Although I'm gay, I can imagine what it's like t have a youngon around. A couple of months ago James' nieces - twins - were in the UK aged 2. I was totally exhausted after a few hours and was glad to hand them back.

That said, I am really pleased on the birth of Harry. Rearing a child isn't easy, but it's well worth it (so I'm told). Take care and enjoy! X

Congratulations and good luck. A cliché but enjoy every moment because they go by sooo fast.

Congrats, Nich.

I always feel a little sorry for other people with children: that their children will never be as fantastic as mine, in some indefinable way I can't quite put my finger on.

As everyone else has said - congratulations but I wouldn't worry about rushing back to active blogging too quickly.

Make the most of sleep while you can - don't stay up catching up on the blog as the little one will be up two hours after you go to bed demanding attention.

Oh and anyone that says 'it gets easier with age' - they're lying - it doesn't get easier it's just the problems are different.

That's coming from a father of two with baby three due in January.

Congratulations! None of our own (yet!) Mrs D might get her own way yet though...
