THIS IS JAMES PATRICK HIRD

Young James was born in the Angliss Hospital birthing suite (Ferntree Gully, Melbourne) early in the morning of July 3rd 2001.

A fairly short but dramatic labour.....


James weighed a little more than Therese on arrival at 8 pounds 14 oz.

And baby makes four


Here is one taken at Melanie and Peter's house on the day of James' church blessing - August 5th 2001.
