Morning good buddies,
Well here he is my first child born on 30th July at St. James Hospital Leeds. His name is James (not named after the hospital) and he weighed in at 7 1/2 pounds I know I said I wasn't going to put a picture of him on, because I know not many people are really interested except family and freinds but tough! Also I have been mentioning him so much it seemed right to put a pic up.

Mother and baby came home yesterday for the first time so I had my first nights none sleep, I now truly know the meaning of tierd!

I have put it in Black and White because I think babies look better like that as they often have blotchy skin, I have also resized it and that is all.

Thanks for looking
Take care

Congratulations to you Tom and to your good lady on the birth of baby James, he is definately a cutie....and I just happen to loooove black and white pics.
Seems like a long time ago my kids were that little...ok for one it was a long time ago and secondly my son was NEVER that tiny, he was a huge child weighing 10 pound 8 ounces!!! Ouch!#


Good morning Tom... yes I am affraid it is morning lol

What an absolutely delightful image and i see the baby is sleeping here lol. Lovely capture and your so right IMO about B/W

Warmest congratulations to you and your wife.

Kindest regards Helen

Well done lad. (And Jenny.) He looks just like you!

Welcome James!

First of all I would like to send you and your wife my warmest congratulations and a fine and tender hug for James! He's just marvellous and sleeps so peacefully. I wish him, his mother and you all the best and hope that you will take a lot of pictures of him. I speak from experience, my two children now are 24 and 22 years old. Time passes by quickly and it's always a good moment to look at some souvenirs... And in that particular case it's not important if the composition, the exposure and all these "artistic details" are perfect or not: important is just the fact that you immortalize your child's face, his expression, a moment spent with him and his family and any moment worthy to live like these...

Kind regards

N.B. You took a great picture! And sorry for my English...

Hello Tom
Beautiful baby and great moment!!!!!!!!!
Well done
Best regards
