Sunshine's waters broke at the local movie rental. I was called from work at 1230. We arrived at the hospital at 2. Eve Leyson Blackall (working title) was born at 4:39pm 8 Feb 2010! 3.2kg, 50cm long. Dark hair, eyes wide open, feeding and sleeping well.
Sunshine, "6th fastest baby deliverer in Australia", is well but under observation after some complications delivering the placenta, expected home on the 10th.


On this day the world has come closer. enemies are now friends, friends are now family, family is now as one.

Congratulations, Leigh, Sunshine and now, Eve. I posted it on Twitter but it's worth adding again, life will never be the same again. And that's a good thing.

Beautiful photos - and well done Sunshine - that was a quick arrival. Eve is a beautiful baby.

Love the photos of Eve tucked into bed with Sunshine. Both our girls used to snuggle into bed with us right from the beginning -

Yep your life will never be the same but 100% better! Our girls are now grown up and living in Perth but you never loose the bond :-)
