    Woot! Serious congrats man! :D Give him all our love.

    And Lpspider, the reason he always wears sunglasses is because if we saw his eyes we'd realise he isn't human... :p

    That is great news Raven. I am ever so happy for you all.

    I don't know what it is like to go home that early after having kids. But I am sure she was glad to get home so very quickly.

    Now lets just hope the little green monster doesn't appear in your second youngest!!! :D:D:D:D

    How are the other kids handling it now that the baby is home? Or is it too soon to tell?

    Symphony the oldest 9 loves him Sebastian 6 is happy about a Bro. Serenity 13 moths. Well. Hmmmm.

    Tor in the UK you can go home 6 hours after the birth providing all went well. as in this case it did. Though lily stayed in the night.

    Its good she's home though it takes me an hour to get to the maternity hospital outside the main Hull Royal hospital.

    You have got to be kidding me. You get to go home within 6 hours. I didn't get to go home for 5 weeks....

    Oh and good luck with Serenity. Mason was 15 months, well 16 when Amity came home and after a month or two he settled down and was a great help.

    Give her little jobs to do and it will really help. Tell her she has to teach Gabriel to smile. That may work.

    It's so wonderful that everyone is home now, and doubly wonderful that you were able to be there to attend this miracle, instead of being untold miles away.

    Enjoy this time, my friend. It is gold.

    WoW!! Beautful baby! You must be so thrilled to finally have him home.
    Just want to say congratulations to you and the whole family!!

    Torana....5 weeks....harsh. I was out of the hospital the next day because hospitals are sooo boring. You must have gone crazy.

    Hospitals in the US, under pressure to make beds available quickly, send new mothers home with their babies nearly as soon as the anaesthesia wears off. They don't even keep C-section moms checked in longer than a couple days any more.

    Coming soon - maternity wards on a conveyor belt?

    Anyway. Gabriel is absolutely adorable. When does he get his first pair of shades?

    Well, it's great to hear this, Hulls. Your wife must be happy, as you said. And Gabriel is so cute! Good luck with taking care of your son. And thanks for posting the pictures. And yes, do you ALWAYS wear glasses?

    And of course:

    CONGRATS!!!
