It's a boy!!!!!

Well as I think some of you had guessed I've been trying to look after the whirlwind of a new baby in the house and I now think it's under some sort of control.

Louis was born on Thursday morning after a very slow and very quick labour. By that I mean Nic had 24 hours of 30 minute spaced contractions where we just carried on as normal and then at 1.30 on Thursday morning they suddenly kicked in like a train and it was all over in an hour. I have to say she was unbelieveable and the result our beautiful little boy.

Anyway here are inevitable photos.

He is cute isn't he? Well we think so anyway.

We thought we were looking alright at this point, but actually we were completely shagged when this was taken. I have no excuse (except it was 4.30 in the morning), Nicky had at least done the equivalent of a double marathon.

And Eben well he seems to have taken it all in his stride. (Well apart from intermittently ignoring him and giving him the odd slap). Bless 'em, give it 20 years and I'm sure they'll get on.

Well done Mr and Mrs. SIX!

En hora buena!!! Just in case you think that means "in good time" of "at last", which is what it looks like it means! It is actually Spanish for CONGRATULATIONS!

Really hope all goes well and yes he does look a cutey. All the best.

Congratulations to all of you Six. How wonderful, a new beautiful, innocent, gorgeous baby boy. You all must be so proud and pleased. The photographs are brilliant and thank you for sharing them with us.

I am so very happy for you.

Had you remembered how to change mucky yucky nappies? How are the nights going?

A big scrummy kiss from Aunty Mags to the babe.

Yes perfect pictures! Wonderful Six. Nicky and Eben are exsquisite. Louis (are we doing Louis as in Quattorze or Loouis as in Houey Louey and Dewey?) is a credit to the fine breeding stock (and yes you don't look so bad either!)

Lovely stuff Six!

I can't believe how good your Nic looks!

I didn't look nearly that good for, oh, about 7 years!

Congratulations, and good work.

Well done to you all!
Two boys are great fun. The slapping , thumping, competitive thing will last forever I think - but only 50% of the time. The other 50% is pure love, support and companionship.
