Children are the bridge to heaven.
– Persian saying
For some time now, Mrs C21 and I have been on tenterhooks waiting for our firstborn to decide to arrive. I got the call on Wednesday afternoon just after lunch time that I should go, much to the delight of my students who went a little bit crazy. Audrey May was born at 1245 on Thursday 25th August, screaming her lungs out (they work just fine!), weighing 3.48kg (7lb 10oz) and measuring 49cm long. She has been a gorgeous little thing and seems relatively well-settled so far as well.
I will be taking the remainder of the term off to learn how to be a real adult and spend some time getting to know my new daughter.
