Thomas means “Twin”.
Tristan called me yesterday to broadcast the happy news: Blaine had given birth to Tom at 0850 on Friday, 25th February! He weighed 8lb 11oz, and was 53 cm long – obviously he had been extremely well fed in the womb! Blaine had been in labour for 12 hours, and Tristan had been there the whole time (except when he fainted from hunger), so they were very relieved when a perfect bouncing boy emerged…
Of course he is beautiful, especially ‘cos he’s the very first grand child in both families. Blaine’s Mum, Penny, is as excited as I’ve been:-)
We’re off to the hospital shortly to see them all, and hopefully give Tom a welcome hug!
