And Then There Were Four

The ranks of the AKA Army have grown by one.

My son was born at 2.07am this morning. He weighed 7 pounds and 14 ounces. At least, I think he did. Does. I'm a little bit addled from sleep-deprivation. I've only had two hours sleep since I woke up at 6am on Tuesday morning. I should probably do something about that...

Also: Longest. Labour. Ever.

I'd like to take this opportunity to publicly thank him for waiting until after the Lost finale before arriving. Thanks, son! I'll never forget this.

He doesn't have a name yet...we're still working on it. I'll add it to the ToDo list.

Mother and baby are doing well. Mrs. AKA was a goddamn warrior and impressed the shit out of me. Gritted teeth never looked so sexy. My daughter is adapting to a new little brother. She seems to enjoy singing to him. He seems to enjoy listening to her sing. This is gonna work out just fine.

That's enough for now. My duvet, it calls to me.

belated congratulations! If you're finding it hard to come up with a name then crowdsourcing on twitter always throws up some highly sensible suggestions.
