You only enter this world the once, so might as well milk it...
The newest member of our humble clan finally emerged blinking into the light this evening, after 38, count'em, 38 hours of nerve-jangling and no-doubt eye-watering labour for my sister-in-law Vicky.
But eventually, she became a mother, my brother Noel a father, my parents grandparents - and myself an enraptured uncle to young master Harrison David (after my mum's maiden name and her brother, rather than Beatle George but we'll happily take that one too, 'here comes the son' and all...)
Unfortunately just as I was about to head out of the door and towards UCL Hospital to clap eyes on him for the first time, we were told all visitors were being kicked out for the evening, leaving new folks and new-born to hopefully enjoy a well-earned night's rest.
Well, that seems fair enough - I'll just have to endure what will doubtless seem a too-long day at work tomorrow first.
Hello there, Harry - the fun starts here...!
