Blog2009 ≫ Boy's birth by twitter

Might come back and update this one with more details...

I was twittering from my phone from the hospital. Could not see any of the replies or even if my messages were getting out there... Might come back and add to this post, fill in the details and reorder this... then again might not, can see me bit busy.

I'm at home again today, had to leave Clare and the boy at the hospital, she's on a ward again and I'm not allowed to stay. They are both doing amazingly well, they are both brilliant, I am so happy.
