I have a son: Zachary Jonathan

Fourteen days late, weighing 9lb4.5oz, 54cm long, at 8.07 this morning my son was born. Zachary Jonathan.

In all my life I have never seen so clearly, in the space of 24 hours how horrendous aspects of this world are, and then how amazing beautiful things are. I feel like we left home at midday yesterday from one universe and now live in a totally different one. And this one is more painful, more breathtaking and has a word-defying beauty that I never imagined possible.

    I type this having been up for the best part of 2 hrs with Noah (admittedly a rare occurrence nowadays). :)
