Our son is born!

On Saturday morning, 26th March, at 7:30am, our son Joseph Pio was born, weighing in at 6 pounds 8 ounces.  Kelly says the labo(u)r was her most peaceful yet, and mama and son are both happily recovering at Tauranga Hospital overnight.

More on the labor, no doubt, will be posted by Kelly in the days to come.

In the meantime, thank you for your prayers for the birth - the timing for the labor couldn't have been better in so many ways, and it was truly a beautiful experience for all involved!


  1. Yay, Sealys!!!! Congrats to Rich, Kelly, Maria and Bernadette on the newest addition to the family. He is so beautiful and boys are AWESOME!

  2. Congratulations!!! I'm glad things went smoothly and I would love to hear the details....
    Thanks for the e-mail and photos. He looks like a lovely baby.
    I just had a conversation with my daughter about her plan to deliver at the Midwife Center and that she would like me to be there with her. That will be in June. How exciting!! This will be the first grandchild for us.
