Topic : Welcome to Baby Bosnia!

Just had a text from Dave to say that baby Bosnia (Hugo James) was born at 3am this morning weighing in at 10lbs!  Rach and baby are both doing well and apparently Hugo has massive hands and blue eyes!

Many congratulations Dave and Rach from all us Williamsons! :)

Fab news this morning. Best wishes to whole family which now includes Alex as 'the godfather' ;-)

Glad they decided against the name Felix in the end.

Congrats Team Bosnia. Great news .. Hugo is a very cool name indeed. 

(Do you think that having sailed with Willy Warren, the whole child birth biz is nothing in comparison?!)

10lbs = ouch! But the bigger they are the sooner they start to sleep at night!

Congratulations to the new Dobrijevic family.
