Congrats!

You must be very pleased - and to be honest, I was most impressed you were allowed to the rugby on saturday, so you haven't done too badly...

All the medical inducement could not induce him to arrive as planned, and originally started some 40 hours earlier! A swift an unplanned trip to the operating theatre dealt with that.

My proudest moment - I managed not to feint in the operating theatre!
Ecellent news - congratulations to both of you!

Congrats to you both - all three of you now! Gone are the days of being able to drink port. Now you have to be able to drag yourself out of bed at mindless o'clock to see to the baby's every need.

I do recall Elizabeth once coming into Michael's bedroom when he was very difficult to settle at a few months of age, to find out what I was saying to him that seemed to keep him very calm and quite - I was reading to him from a collection of John Arlott's writings on wine! I've still got the book if you need to borrow it!

Congratulations (again!) -- how many port babies must there be to ensure 2013 will be a vintage year?
