Welcome to the world…..Luke Cairns

Sun 24 Feb, 2008 at 6:32 am 23 comments

Today at 1.43am Jen gave birth (by C section) to our son. We are calling him Luke (we havent worked out the middle names yet!). He weighed in at 6 pounds 13.5 ounces. Jen is very tired after being in the hospital for 16 hours before being taken in for a section. I will blog the whole story later – very tired right now myself!

Mother and baby are doing well. He has ate twice and filled a nappy already!

Here is a picture just for now – more to follow later (after I get some sleep!)



The second picture is right after the section as Jen is being stitched back up!

More photos later – I’m off to sleep


Entry filed under: baby stuff.

Getting ready for the hospital and hopefully some sleep before I go! More Photos

    As with everyone else.. Congratulations! Stop while you are ahead and forget the middle name-Luke is fantastic-way better than the more effeminate Lucas…

  • 12. Jen and Ben Amundgaard  |  Mon 25 Feb, 2008 at 3:58 am

    HOORAY!!! Ben and I are soooo excited for you three! Wow. What a miracle. We haven’t heard our baby’s heartbeat yet — it seems like you’re decades ahead of us, but it’s good to see the little person that you’ve made through it all. 🙂

    Lots of love to you both,

    Congratulations!!! That’s brilliant news and he’s really cute.

  • 14. Peter  |  Mon 25 Feb, 2008 at 4:09 pm

    Congratulations and well done Jen. You look tired. Be careful, some guy with glasses looks like he is about to steal Luke!!

  • 15. Rhonda  |  Mon 25 Feb, 2008 at 6:09 pm

    Congratulations Jen & Tim. He is cute as a wee cute thing! Hope you make a speedy recovery Jen. Keep in touch and keep the photos coming..love to you all xox

    Woo Hoo!!! We are excited to hear the good news of you new son!

  • 17. Drew Shih  |  Tue 26 Feb, 2008 at 12:21 am

    whoa….ccrraaazyy. Tim is a dad.

  • 18. Keith  |  Tue 26 Feb, 2008 at 7:12 pm

    Tim – it is “he has eaten” or “he ate” – not “he has ate”. Really, the joy and stress of child birth is no excuse for a lapse in the use of English. Congratulations by the way.

    Thanks one and all for the best wishes!!

    Keith – What an Oxford education does for one (that sounds wrong as well!!!!). I had been awake for 26 hours when I wrote that post! sorry!!!

  • 20. Keith  |  Wed 27 Feb, 2008 at 8:59 pm

    I guessed as much Tim, I was just teasing you. Hope all is well. I will have to schedule a visit to Upper Canada to see you all.
