Hi all,
Just wanted to share with the community the arrival of our son, Joshua Masuo Thorpe was born here in Bali by way of a Water Birth ceremony held at a specialized clinic in the Renon area of Denpasar. Hitting the scalles at 3.2Kg and standing 51cm tall he entered stage right on November 14th 2012 at 18.25pm. I would have posted before but have spent the past four days running around with the paperwork issues during the working hours and covered in a complete selection of projectile launched body fluids during the evenings! Did anyone say sleepless? But fun...

Mum and baby doing fine. Hoping to get a video camera in his mitts as soon as possible....

Cheers,
Mark.

You'll be needing housing for that! Well done! It seems like only yesterday my teenagers were like that!

I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?
