Ta-dah!

Look at what we made - one baby Harper, born Tuesday 5 February (his aunty Ange's birthday) in the early hours after a straitforward, quick and surprise labour at Wellington Hospital.

His Mum and Dad, we can safely say, are besotted.
Thanks to everyone, and there have been loads of you, sending your best wishes, flowers, baking, clothes, offers of help, texts, comments and everything else. I hope in the next few days to answer everyone, but at the moment I am too caught up with gazing into my child's eyes.

Harper is beautiful! And his parents don't look so bad either. We Duluthians are just pleased as punch that mama, baby, and daddy all appear to be healthy and well. And who needs 8 hours of sleep anyways...at least that is what Harper seems to be saying with his adorable gaze in photo number 2.
Congratulations!
Beth, Kevin, and Alex
