My partner and I were blessed with a little bundle of joy tonight. A boy of 54cm and 3.6kg with a 33cm noggin. Not sure where that all sits in the averages, but it certainly looked big coming out.

Mum and bub are both doing well and resting up in hospital.

I'm spent, and enjoying a glass of Apricots'n'Honey mead from Meadery of The Rockies I picked up in Palisade CO when we were in the USA last year.

Congrats man......

Those measurements remind me of my daughter (52cms long and 3.55kg). He must be a long thin baby..........

congrats mate, is indeed a long thin bub, our little asher was 3.88kgs and 54cm long, 34cm round the noggin. (9 days old today)

how good does it feel? the adrenalin just keeps you going. (im sure your missus is twice as buzzing.)

first week is such a rush mate, enjoy it, spend heaps of time with them and look after your partners every request.

also if bubs is asleep make sure you and mum are resting as well, its the only way you'll survive.

congrats again and good luck mate.

Got a month off work, so soon enough.

Problem is, who wants to drink Barleywine in January? January babies... good for Summer parties, not so great for commemorative brewing.

If you brew it now, it won't be ready by the end of the month by a long shot. Barleywines are beers to be patient with.

Haha, I think Josh picked up on what I was getting at, and has a very valid point. Josh, maybe you can brew a big refreshing batch of one of your great summer-type beers based around peak drinkability in Jan 2029.

We'll be having a barbecue and a few beers at our place on Sunday 23rd January.

I'll have a couple of kegs on.

If anyone is interested in hanging out, PM me for details.
