I'm a dad - Again !

After what seems like a 15 month gestation period, the "little" lad finally saw the light of day at 10h45 this morning.

A BEAST OF A BOY !!

Hugo du Preez

Length: 53 cm
Weight - (gulp) 4,25kg (that is, 9 pound 5 ounces in old people speak!!)

He looks like a rugby prop - head and neck the same size!

I'm so proud, I can burst at the seams!! I will add a photo as soon as I can figure out how to get the darn thing off my cellphone!

Thanks, all !!

No party. Yolanda is still in hospital, and I have to entertain the 3 year old. My family is about 400kms away, and the inlaws are in South Africa for a month. My Father-in-law had a back operation last week, and he still has to get a neck operation and heart operation in the weeks to come.

I'm all alone..... :cry:

Got a piccie off the cell. I hope it works for the attatchment!!
