Welcome, Nephew!

What a privilege it is to announce the arrival of Angus Harrison Cam Barr, born 3:30 this afternoon, as I was writing the last post. The birth went well, although Angus will spend the night in the special care nursery after experiencing a small lung tear in his first breath. We are all so proud of our sister Rach and Michael for their part in bringing this treasure into the world.

Dear Cam and Elizabeth
Congratulations on becoming aunt and uncle! I’m sure that Angus will be fine. While the Browns have been trying for years to catch up with the Shiners/Lindsells production line success, I now believe that the Harrises/Barrs/Bains will not be far behind. Adam & Narelle and Dj & Conor had better start trying a bit harder to at least be in the running. Go Browns!

Procreation issues aside, we are so relieved that you came through OK Cam. I was quite excited to hear that you didn’t get sores in your mouth and that your gut behaved itself. Why you may ask? Well, I specifically fasted and prayed for a day just for that. I also prayed that you wouldn’t get an infection from your normal flora, which Elizabeth said was quite common. I feel though that I have let you down. I should have prayed against legionaires disease as that is what just about killed you in the end. If there is a next time, I will cover all basis and pray against legionaires disease, malaria, leprosy, gangrene, flesh-eating viral infections, the hospital burning down, a bus running you over while hooked up to the IV and terrorist attacks. Oh yes, and I’ll pray against mouth ulcers too.

Take care the both of you. You do have some thinking to do about the future. It sounds like a hard choice to make.

Much love, James, Elise & Naomi

Thanks, Cam, for the announcement, I can hear the pride in your voice and although we’ve never met, I can tell you’re going to be an excellent uncle.

Hello Mr Harris!
Layla here (yr 7, 2004 – incase you’ve forgotten me- but I am pretty annoying so could be tough to erase me from your memory!) currently Jacqui and I are sitting in Yr 11 english and you’ll never believe who our teacher is….*drum role* Mr Marlow!! Imagine that!! Still stuck with MCC teachers! Well because we are indeed old MCC students he lets us do pretty much whatever we want in english. Its pretty cool. :D Well lately Jacqui and I have been thinking (yes, scary) about you (even scarier). We really loved having you as a teacher and you’ve impacted our lives more than you know. We’d really like to catch up with you sometime coz we miss you (but not in a freaky, stalker way *shifty eyes* o_O).

All the Best
Layla…and Jacqui…but mainly Layla :D
P.s we’ve both left you comments just so you have to reply to one of us!!
