We’re parents!

At 9:42am this morning, my stonkingly gorgeous wife gave birth to our first child! Luther Jacob Collington came in to the world at 7lbs 1.5oz and measuring around 19 inches. Mum and baby are doing well (dad’s not bad, either) and will be in hospital for a number of days to recover.

As our day started at 4:30am, and it’s now 10:30pm, I’m not going to post much more than this because I’m very tired. I’m sure there will also be a lot of photos to come, but for now here’s one I like of the three of us. (Select the thumbnail for the full size image.)

    And top marks for naming him Luther; that already makes him way cooler than most babies I know 😉
