We are happy to announce the birth of the fourth heir of Cair Paravel, of which all thrones are now filled.
Time: 9th October 2006, 11:56am.
Weight: 4.17kg (9lb 3oz)
Helen is doing well, she is a champion. The baby’s first feed was very good. The labour was about 8 hours.
She is staying a Frankston hospital and resting. No visitors please until 4:00pm Tuesday onwards (give me a ring first to check if all is ok).
Please don’t send any presents, not really needed.
The Apostle Paul said: “I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest in me” (2 Corinthians 12:9). May God’s power be displayed through the life of this child, so that through both her strengths and weaknesses Jesus Christ will show himself to be glorious and sufficient.
Tired + smiling,
Wayne, Helen, Josiah, Jemima and Lydia
