The Twins are here!

2008-08-19 Birth of Luc Joseph and Joshua John Colyer (click for more and bigger pictures)

Dear All,

After what has seemed like the longest pregnancy in history the boys have arrived!

Please welcome Luc Joseph Colyer, born 1:40am, 19th August 2008, 2.515 Kg (5lbs 8oz) 48,5cm (19″) and Joshua John Colyer, born 1:46am, 2.620 Kg (5lbs 12 1/2oz) 47.5cm (18 1/2″)!

They are perfectly healthy and happy and have their mother’s nose. We had the whole delivery ward to ourselves and the most wonderful care. Nicki has been a model mother and gave birth after a short labour with an excellent delivery. Everyone was impressed, except the doctor perhaps, who got his shoes soaked by Joshua’s waters!

We will keep you all posted but it all looks very good. Please click on the photo for more pictures.


Kevin, Nicki, Sam, Ellie, Luc and Joshua.

PS You can pronounce Luc however you want (‘Loook’, the French way, or Luke, the English way)

PPS For the Bruxellois, Nicki is in clinic St Michel, Room 314. Visiting hours are 14h30 to 19h30.
