It's a boy!!!!

Well Nancy and I went to her ultrasound appointment this afternoon and got some great news - the baby is active and healthy. We also found out it's a boy, so Gavin gets his wish for a little brother (and I get my pair of opening batsmen*).

Being a parent can be a strange thing. You love your kids unconditionally and find things affect you emotionally in ways they never did before - yesterday this article brought tears to my eyes and made me want to just rush home and hug Gavin.

But this is a happy day. We have no idea of names yet, but here are a few we probably want to avoid (check out the comments - they're hilarious).

Congrats Mark! Really pleased for you...

Some of those names to avoid are classics!

Enjoy the weekend,
