On perhaps the coldest day of the year so far, son number two decided it would be a great time to arrive. So after Laurel woke up at 4am, by 5.30am we decided it was time to head into the hospital. By 7am, Laurel was 6cm dilated and at 10.29am Te Po Atarau William Creed Barr Cormack was born.
After a few false starts earlier when he decided to really get going he sure didn’t muck around. He was 4.24kg (not a small fella) with all the requisite fingers and toes.
