It's a Boy!

Zacharia Adam Sturgis came into this world yesterday at 1845 GMT.

We left the house at 3h30am when Siham's contractions were less than ten minutes apart.

It was noon when Siham was moved to the delivery room, and for five hours she was in fairly intense labour. The doctor waited as long as she could, with Siham adamant about not wanting to have a Cesarean section. Finally, the doctor made the call for her, and Siham was taken to surgery. At 18h45, from the nearby waiting room, we heard the baby crying, and shortly later we were told it was a boy and that Siham was well.

Hey Dan!!

That's been a long time!!

Congratulations to you and your miss!!

The boy looks really cute, I guess it resembles his mom a bit.

Will try and visit you on my next trip, if the buggy will actually make it all the way this time. But that'll only be after this trip (Oz) is finished.

Good luck as a father
