A new arrival!

OK, well many of you already know that on October 15th, Matotea, my daughter made her bid to enter the big wide world, a year and a day after her cousin Oliver. She was obviously in a bit of a hurry as she was not "due" until Nov 4th, but despite this she is very healthy, she was 3.08kg at birth and 48cm long, not bad for 37 weeks.

Whatsmore she is already busy growing! She's already outgrown some of her clothes.... Viri and I are both enjoying playing the proud parents. And even the dirty nappies and night feeds aren't that bad! She's actually thankfully mellow, that's not to say that she doesn't have her moments, but then don't we all!
