We've been so busy of late, and didn't have the time to write to you. Sorry for this belated welcome, by the way your name is Panop (here in Thailand it is customary to also have a nick name, and yours is Matt).

The story of your arrival would make a great Hollywood (well, perhaps more like Bollywood) story, the doctor mentioned that you should be arriving on the 13th of May, but on the 4th at around 11pm your mother started having contractions, not strong but we decided to call the hospital, they said we should come in for a check up (as there were some bleeding), so off we went (luckily we had only packed an hour before).

Anyhow, to cut the story short, the nurse at the hospital called your doctor (his name is Adinun), that must have been around midnight. To our surprise the doc. said that he was coming in to take you out! You should have seen our faces, I mean we were physically ready (we have already bought all the things that you would need) but mentally we (well probably only me) weren't mentally ready... and he was coming in!

IMG_1409 You screamed at around 2.14 am on the 5th of May, the birth queue was pretty bad, as it was a good day (it's a Chinese thing), you were the second to be born at the hospital on that day.

I know the pic. isn't really flattering, but to us you were fantastic, you should have seen your mother's smile (and mine too, although I was in shock, we have a VDO to show you as well, but don't tell the doc. it is forbidden to take VDO in the operating theatre).

So you are now just one month old, and I have so many stories to tell you, I'll leave that for next time, just to say it hadn't been easy (but a  superb experience and a total joy).

You are now as sleep... so is your mother... then only time I get to write is when you are both as sleep... and that isn't very often silly boy :)
