Non-Technical: I'm now a father of two...

My lovely wife, Claudia, delivered our new baby girl on Monday, 25 September at 2:49 PM CDT. Kate weighed 6 lbs, 5 oz and was 19 inches long. She joins her 3-year-old brother, Christopher, to make us four in total.

Katie gave us quite a scare during the pregnancy, with blood incompatibilities that, fortunately, never manifested into any real issues. We dodged the proverbial bullet and have a healthy little girl.

I expect I won't be posting for the next couple of weeks, but I shall return soon...

I've attached a picture of Chris about to give Katie a kiss.

Congratulations, Peter. Having a girl and a boy rocks (I know from experience).

I just LOVE the way Chris looks at Katie on the picture!

Congratulations, Peter!  It looks to me as though Chris has already got the big-brother thing down pat.

Well done by all four of you, with special kudos to Claudia.

All the best, and as Hugo said..

Congratulations, Peter. Your kids are beautiful. Just had twins myself (proud father of three) 10 weeks ago. I am still hoping to get at least 5 hours of sleep in one stretch in  ;-(

Enjoy, they will grow up before you know it
