Touchdown

This might be the only time I get today to record this, so before I go to bed......

The Eaglet has landed, baby arrived at about 0045 this morning, after a three hour labour. She doesn't quite have a name yet as she is a couple of weeks early, but mum and daughter are both doing well at 3+ hours, if somewhat knackered.

Vitals: Girl, brunette, 2.7kg (about 5.9 pounds).

Kind of appropriate that she arrived in the middle of a storm, given her dads love of interesting weather.

Stoked.

Yo yo yeah! Congratulations!

(also, being born in a storm, she can claim a stake in the Stones' Jumping Jack Flash, Nick Cave's Tupelo, and WB Yeats' Prayer for My Daughter... ;)

Wow - I'm just remembering I saw you guys at the movie last night..... Fi must've only gone into labout an hour or two after getting out of the theatre. Freaky! You'll have to tell that story when you get C. to watch Wall-E when she's old enough. It's her birth-movie!

Maybe you shoulda called her Eve or Wally :)
