IT'S A BOY- RILEY JOSHUA

FINALLY
Amy went into labour at 7.30am on Thursday and this morning Friday at 12 minutes past midnight she had a little boy named Riley Joshua. It was a long labour that had difficulties at the end but all seems well. Not sure what weight as when I left at 1.00am he had still not been weighed. No photos yet as he was still a bit messy when I left.

Update No.1- Spoke to Amy at 8.30 this morning and Riley weighs 7lb 13ozs.
Update No2- Photo of Amy and Riley that I took this afternoon. Couldn't get an open eye shot.
