It's a boy!

Sorry for the delay - baby arrival coincided with catastrophic internet disconnection. Baby stats as follows:

Leo Thomas, born at 4.45 a.m. yesterday, 8lb 7.5oz - 36 hours of labour (!) (!!).* Mother and baby both doing well - Ally was brilliant.

[Post written by B but guest-posted by Kitchen Witch courtesy of a bizarre internet collaboration and the aforementioned hideously badly-timed internet disconnection.]

*Asterisks are mine (KW). I feel this warrants them.
