Stop Press! New Baby!

As of 4.15 this afternoon the Richardson clan has increased by one.

I can't tell you his name because he doesn't have one yet, but Angus refers to him as Baby Lucy, since that's the most recent baby he knows, but I doubt the name will stick.

We were able to see them this evening, just a couple of hours after the delivery. Jess was tired, but well, and Baby Lucy was sleeping peacefully. He weighs about 3.4 kg and has quite a lot of dark hair. I can see no family resemblance, but while I was holding him he looked like Chairman Mao. That will probably pass off.

Hugh is staying with Jess and the baby tonight and we are looking after Angus. He is coping with the excitement well, and hopefully will sleep all night!

Pictures follow; captions unnecessary.


  1. Hurrah!
    Welcome to the world new baby!
    Can't wait to meet you, sadly I don't think it will be this year. But we love you very much and can't wait to see more photos.
    Well done Jess!
    Jose, Jac and TueTue
