My brother Croydon and his wife Fiona gave birth to their first baby girl last night in Nelson Hospital.
We got a txt from Croydon yesterday afternoon saying that Fiona’s water had broke the day before and that they were heading to Nelson to get induced at 4:30pm.
Then at 2:21am this morning, I got the following txt:
