Conrad

Born at 11:53 am on the 12th of May 2010

Welcome to our life, little fella.  It’s a wonderful world, and it’s a scary world.  Your future is our adventure.

At 11:53am, after a ridiculously short labour, you were born and burst into our world.  It wasn’t entirely easy, thanks to somehow tangling yourself up in your own umbilical cord, but you made it, were full of life, and I never thought I’d enjoy hearing a baby cry so much as I did when you made those first tentative squawks.

You and your mother… you’re amazing.

PS. thank you for the easy to use Stage 1 iPhone application – it told us all we needed to know.

PPS. apparently the stats are important – they’re in one of the pictures, but for the benefit of the record: 3.22Kg (7lb 1.5oz), 55cm long.  About right, in other words.  Oh, and one day over term, but originally we’d worked out 13th of May, so guess he went right for the middle :o)

Congratulations!

Good to hear the “noise making devices” are working too, so he can keep his parents awake :D

Best of luck to all of you!

In spite of coming home without him I’ve just had a sleepless night anyway! Excitement, I guess….

Hey Dave,

Congratulations that’s brilliant news. Cool name also. Didn’t know that about Matt’s e-mail address. I thought it was because of a hidden obsession with MC Hammer or something.

Cheers,

Steve

Little Conrad looks great, and he has the same birthday as me. That’s gotta be a good sign :-)

Congratulations Dave and Romana!!! It’s amazing to see Conrad was still in mummy’s tummy when we met a few days ago, and now a little person! Maybe he will start playing badminton soon ;-) Good luck x x x

Dave,
5 minutes old and the poor child already has an internet fingerprint!

Congratulations, especially to Romana. I expect Karema will be sacrificing a sheep for you shortly.

Let me know when you want me to start Conrad’s Marine Biological education.
