Walking into spring with a bang. 01/09/2018 Thank you, Lord for the amazing blessing of Family. Welcome to the world Alexa-Rose Duminy."

Meanwhile, Sue said: "And then there were 4! Welcome to the world my beautiful Alexa-Rose Duminy. Mom's heart just doubled in size with all this new love, dad's chest expanded twice from all the proudness and Isabella already got a very tight grip around your hand so you are basically stuck with your new BFF for life... Thanks my love @jpduminy for standing next to me every minute of the 26 hours in labour. I hope you can still manage to catch a ball after all those contraction-hand-grasps... And thanks to everyone for the beautiful messages, each one is greatly appreciated!"
