Well the BXs part of the title hasn't changed much, the bungalow being more of the same.

The babies bit though, that changed....

Image
Liam Daniel weighing 5lb 12oz on left, Jack Anthony weighing 6lb 3oz on right (yes, his initials will be J.A.K!) Taken around 45mins after birth.

I won't go mad with pics of them, as we know there are plenty of freaks on the net who could be watching! :roll: :x

Anyway, born at 8months duration on 04/06/09 at 9:42am (Jack) and 9:43am (Liam) by c-section. They finally came home yesterday, having been kept in the SCBU at Winchester hospital with hypo-glucemia (sp?), feeding issues and Jaundice (all common on pre-mature babies thankfully.

So all strapped in and ready to go home:

Image

And what chariot awaited them? Obviously:

Not sure how I'm gonna leave it to my child when I die. I'll have to get Doc to gas axe it in half!
Anyway, now they're here I can finally understand all the people who've said it's the best thing you'll ever do. Before I though it was probably not, and that V8's, girls, racing and football would still be more fun. But kids are in a different league!

Fantastic. Wish you All the very best! Reminds me of ferrying our first daughter around in a bright red BX GTi... back in 1993!

CONGRATS to the whole bunch of you mate!! (including the valver!)

Were they on a B.O.G.O.F. deal locally? :wink:

A smashing-looking pair of lads, now you'll have to get TWO valvers put away for when they're 17, eh?

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Kitch. :D They do look comfortable in the BX Chariot. :D

You'll have to practice your Lego skills for a while with them until they're old enough to use your tools! :wink:
