Age in Hours
By the end of today I will have completed 10,666 24-hour cycles, making me around 255,984 hours old!
Our son is just 4,890 hours old!
He was born at 9:48 AM on Sunday 28 April, 2013, after 12 hours of labour.
In the next episode, we'll calculate our ages in minutes ... fasten your seatbelts!

One of my early memories is of watching A Bit of Fry and Laurie with my dad. I didn't understand it, of course, but I remember it vividly. I would fall asleep, and then Dad would give me a classic fireman's lift up the stairs to Bedfordshire LOL I would be almost asleep, but I remember how comfortable it was on his shoulder!
