When they say they’re going to induce they don’t kid around (no pun intended), about 5 hours after having her first contraction Kristie gave birth to a healthy baby boy with surprisingly little screaming (at me).
Mother and baby are both well and resting.
Born 5:48am 10 October 2005 (that’s a cool DOB, 10/10/05 🙂 weight 3.6kg 8 pounds exactly), 10 fingers, 10 toes, a good set of lungs.
We named him Alex Ryan (using Kristie’s surname), no middle name yet but it will probably be something family, wierd and old fashioned like mine.
He spent about 24 hours in the humidicrib thingy as a precaution since the labour was so fast we was still under the effects of pethadene when he emerged but is otherwise healthy and happy.
