A big welcome


to Samuel John arrived safely at 1:20 pm this afternoon, 3.37 kg, 7lb 7oz, Rachel and Samuel are doing well, Samuel has been mostly sleeping and snorting. Aaron and Maddison are very excited about their baby brother, it was very nice to see their first hold and cuddle.

Samuel here is just 3 hours old looking very alert, and very much like Aaron when he was new born.
