Two vomits, twelve kilograms, 237 stretch marks, nine months, four days of pre-labour and four hours of actual labour later, Gabriel was born. But he was worth it. On 3 April 2007 he arrived at 03:49, weighing 3.05kg (6lb 10oz) and it was a full moon. He’s been keeping Neil and me busy, but things are going better. In the coming weeks I’ll try to get more posts up.
