I'm officially a DADDY

In the red corner..weighing in at heavy on your mind..LIFE

In the blue corner.weighing in at 3lb 7oz..Samuel David Tyson.

Fight begins and Samuel is hit by a few low blows..6 weeks early..lightweight and not ready for the contest. However, the prayers and good wishes start raining in and he gets the upper hand..GO ON SON!

What can you say. No warning. Just off to work and the wife calls me back to the house.. ten minutes later and we're in an ambulance! hour later and he's born. No messing. No fuss. Just unalduterated panic on behalf of his mother and a bizarre sense of calm in his father.

Surgeon reckons another hour and he'd have lost the fight. Puts your world into perspective I can tell you.

A week later and he's just come out of an incubator and into a cot, feeding well, off his drip and off his monitors. Top stuff. Early days but fingers crossed.

A week I wouldn't want to wish on anyone, but I wouldn't have missed it for the World.

My cousin was born and she was under 2lbs, now she is a happy, healthy 6 year old and has done really well.
Hope he continues to do well

Tizer congratulations!!!!

Best wishes to Mrs Tizer and little Samuel!

Good things come in small packages you know, and you cannot get better than a new baby son

My daughter was 6 weeks early and 6lbs 12oz. She would have been over 10 full term.

I hope the young one will have a long, healthy and happy life.

And will like U2.

My best wishes also to Mrs. Tizer.

Forget all those 200+ page manuals for TV's, cars, computers and cell-phones. Just be careful!

*hands Tizer a cigar*

Well done!

C ya!

“Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.”

Congratulations. Well done etc. It wont be long and Sam will be dropping toast, jam side up on the only clean part of the carpet, drawing on the walls (I hope you dont have french wash walls like we do) and asking questions you have never even considered eg "why doesnt the moon shine in my eyes"

PS Do you have a photo you can share with us?

FLASHBACK Second Feb 2004

Tizer: my unborn child...is it a girl or a boy?
Beli: Boy.
Beli: My unborn child, is it a girl or boy?
Tizer: Boy

I was right (what a fluke!). We just have to wait a few months to see if you were right too.

Congratulations again.
