New Arrival

Louise and I would like to announce the arrival of Bindi Jayne Burford. She was born at 38 weeks at 12:38am on the 3rd of May (National Scrapbooking Day). She weighed 7 pounds 2 ounces and is 19 inches tall.

Both Bindi and Louise did really well throughout the birth and recovery. Thanks to the support of Overlake's hospital staff and our doula Debra, the birth was as close to our birth plan as we could have hoped. Labor started just in time and lasted for 6 hours. We had a natural delivery with no pain medication. Sean helped Louise and Bindi during the birth.

We're back home now after spending two days recovering in the hospital. Ebony is helping us remember to wake up every few hours to feed Bindi.
