The Big Announcement

So, it's a girl after all. Our daughter was born just after 8pm on Tuesday 29th September 2009, at Hope Hospital in Salford. She's 9lbs 15oz, which by any standards is a big girl. Mrs J certainly learnt the hard way through 18 hours of labour, including four hours of pushing, with only gas and air to help. Although very tired when I left them a little while ago, they're both doing fine. I'll get round to telling more of the story over the next few days, but for now this picture will have to do. As you can see, I'm already taking this parenting business very seriously indeed.

We've given our daughter a pretty name which begins with G, so from now on in this blog she's going to be known as G. Which is at least better than Bump or Firstborn. In the meantime, here's another photo showing what I'm doing right now.

I think they still call it wetting the baby's head. Cheers.
