5 days over cooked, Daniel arrived at 12:33 on the 8th of September 2016 at North West Private Hospital in Brisbane. A number of the doctors, nurses and midwives commended on how big his feet are for a baby. Maybe we have an Olympic swimmer on our hands?
After a long night and tiring day, Jihyeon had a well deserved rest while I had some dinner.
The next day Jihyeon was on enough pain killers to get back on her feet and even crack a smile for her annoying husband taking photos.
Daniel came in at 3.4kg and 54cm long.

All good, no problems. Passed on the first go. What a champion.

Mummy feeding Daniel. He was a big eater right out of the gate. Definitely my son.
Out the window of our room we spotted a turtle sunning himself on the creek bank. Jihyeon's mum got pretty excited.
5 days later, we packed up our things and headed home.
Back at home, Daniel took a nap in the cradle my grandfather made for me! Maybe one day my grand kids will use the same cradle. It's a nice thought.
I bought this baby boots charm months ago as a gift to give Jihyeon in the hospital, but with theensuing chaos and sleep deprivation, I completely forgot! Luckily while checking the credit card bill today I saw the expense and retrieved it from where I had safely hidden it in the car.
Very happy to be home again, with a slightly larger family.
