Meet Alasdair

Alasdair Murdo Morrison arrived on August 7th, 2008 at 13 minutes past 7 in the evening. Weighing in at 7lbs and 6oz. Mother and baby are doing well. Dad, well, he could do with a shave and a shower. But that's almost always the case anyway.

More photos to follow when Nikki and Alasdair are both a little more presentable....

UPDATE...I have permission to display the obligatory 'knackered mother' photo now:

Alex said...

Best 0430 wake up call ever (Christine was a lot more sensible), didn't sleep much after that.

Still can't believe you engineered it so I'd have to get the beers in on his 18th (21st?) birthday, sneaky!

So chuffed for you both, I just want to jump on a plane to Houston! Had any sleep yet bruv?

Nikki, Ian and Alasdair!! Congratulations!!!!

Honestly Ian, where do you find the time to update this blog? You have diapers to change, sleep to catch up on, baby clothes to wash, throw out the trash, ....

From Russia with love,
Sonia, Ed et Gaspar
P.S. I am pleased I guessed wrong!!

Alli said...

CONGRATULATIONS, Ian & Nikki!!!!!! I super excited for you! Your bundle of joy is absolutely adorable!

Ian said...

Sonia, Ed (and Gaspar): I have now perfected the art of typing one handed. Very handy for keeping everyone informed while holding Alasdair. Sorry to have broken Ed's impressive record of correct guesses, Alasdair's being a boy cost me a bottle of whisky in a side bet with my sister, but I'm not complaining. Although, I probably will be once I see the price of these flipping cosmetics I'm meant to buy her.

Alli: Thanks. I can't help but agree!
