Introducing Elijah Christopher Mardon...

Hi guys,

As most of you know, I gave birth to a beautiful, healthy baby boy on Monday morning. We have named him Elijah (Eli) Christopher. He weighed 7lb 6oz and was 51cm long. I had a somewhat *interesting* labour - but hey, aren't they all! No drugs though (hehe, I didn't have a choice!)

Anyway, I know you're all *busting* to see my little man, so I thought I better hurry up and share some photos. Check out this handsome little thing:

Anyway! This has taken me about 2 hours to upload due to slow speed and bandwidth, feeding nad settling Eli, and watching a little Friday Night Live in between... now I better think about getting to bed myself, if Eli is going to stay asleep this time..

Ngiht, Nat xxx
