Abraham William (Bram) Penford-Dennis

The three of us
Originally uploaded by billyjoebob.
Born 1.32pm on the 4th of May 2005, at Frances Perry House in Carlton, Victoria, Australia. Mum and babe are both doing well, but there's a fair bit of sleeping going on. Labour went for a grand total of 22 hours before an absolutely necessary c-section.

He's well and truly one of the most beautiful babies I've ever seen (not that I'm biased or anything), and you can see more photos if you click.

Thanks ever so much for all the kind words and thoughts flying to us from around the world. Your love and prayers were felt and appreciated.

Bill, Eve and Bram

Hello my lovely grandson,

I hope now your Mum and Dad are having a sleep, and you are in the nursery, being looked after.
I was so happy and relieved to hear your cries when your dad called me (it's been a long day for all of us - waiting for your arrival), you sound very healthy - and according to your Mum you have figured out where the food comes from. Your Dad was very good at feeding - right from day one. Your Grandad Ian and I used to call him the boob juice freak.

Keep healthy, and get to know your Mum and Dad and all of the assorted relatives.

All of your relatives and friends on this side of the Pacific welcome you with joy.

Your Grandad Phil and I are counting the hours until we can hold you,

with much love
Grammy Linda
