Announcement of family news

We would like to announce the arrival of Samuel Henry Jacob Dodwell (yes, we think that’s just about enough middle names for one small boy). He was born at 2.14pm this afternoon after arriving at the hospital 25 minutes earlier. Samuel’s birth weight was 8lbs, and he’s come home already. Emily and Lois are chuffed to bits to have a little brother, and Carolyn is doing really well.

Thanks to all our friends for your thoughts and prayers, 

Much love and huge blessings from

Andy, Carolyn, Emily, Lois and Samuel
(The Dodwell tribe)


Of course, if i were a real blogger, I’d now write about how i felt during the labour, and post appropriately amusing photos that would underscore my point and make you all laugh. The truth of the matter is that I’m not that good at blogging (which you all know by now), and also that I’m coming down off a massive adrenaline high. We’ve had a long day, my wife had no sleep last night, and so I’m going to wish you all a very good and peace-filled night.
