A telephone call from my son in Australia last night at around 11 pm brought the news that we have a new grandson. Matthew James was safely delivered and mother and baby are doing well. He weighed in at 7lb 4oz (3.05 kg), and has brown hair.
Son sounded very pleased and excited, telling me what a beautiful morning it was there.
Matthew was born at 10.33 pm (British time) on 1 September but in fact his birth time and date is 7.03 am, 2 September, being Australian time.
I telephoned this morning and spoke to each of the family, and heard new grandson making baby noises (not crying)! I am very thrilled and on 17 September will be travelling to meet the newest member of our family!
