    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Hey Phill Take your time man. we know a new little one can be busy times when you first get them home. And Congrats man :toast: I am glad things are going great.

    Babies are awesome and just wait til she gets a little age to her where she starts moving around and able to do things. Thats when the real fun happens. They just do all kinds of neat stuff you would think is not possible for there age.
    stinger608 and phill say thanks.

    I got myself a CRT RGB Scart monitor, the model is a Philips HCS 35. Very nice picture, has a broken power switch but i've jammed temporarily so its turned on. Using it for old home computers and consoles with RGB Scart. Has a built in speaker which does the job.

    Yes mate, they've met her and had cuddles too :D

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Very nice pics and such a cute baby. Hope your wife is felling well. My wife had 2 c sections because of complications. Long story short, with the twins we almost lost them due to a rare syndrome (twin 2 twin) so once the doctors felt like the twins where big enough to survive they delivered them by c section. With the last child my wife called the doctors office and told them her water broke. They told her to come in. When they checked her they said her water was fine and that she must have wet herself. This was on a Friday, by Monday she was having some pain so she went to the hospital. The checked her and found yes her water broke Friday and the baby was almost in a dry sack so they delivered him right away by c section.



    But healing from the c section isn't that bad as my wife says. A little painful at first but it goes away quick.

    Perhaps a few 4am feeds by you might make her (the Wife) a bit less short tempered :D
