Another new addition!

Henry Anthony Walshe was born to Alicia and Fred on Wednesday 10th October at 4.59pm. He came out two weeks early, weighing 6lbs 7oz and 21 inches long.

Now, Alicia's gorgeous flexibility as a dancer is something that often leaves Laurie and I in awe. However, I was certaintly not expecting her to still be quite as bendy after childbirth. When I visited her in Holles St Hospital a day after Henry arrived, she demonstrated fully her 'pushing positions' - legs stretched up in the air - and I winced in anticipation of pain, until I realized that this is Alicia. And Alicia must surely be the only person I've ever met who could stretch with the best of them straight after emitting a human being.

Congrats you guys!
