He weighed in at 8lb 13oz in the early hours of the morning.
Congratulations Claire from all the TrainingZone team.

    Many congratulations to you and your partner.

    Perhaps an “official” birthday in June might help spread the expense….?

    Very best wishes

  10. Congratulations
    Congratulations Claire and Tomos.

    All the best to both of you in 2008 and beyond!

  11. Thank you!
    I was really touched to read all your messages.
    Tomos is doing fine, gaining lots of weight and sleeping like a dream – sadly for me in 1.5hr bursts!
    Thank you so much for all your kind words.

  12. 1.5 hr bursts..
    Hi Claire..
    Not wanting to worry you but one of my daughters was a bit like that – but slept only for 2 hrs…. she did that till she was two and a half!

    I suppose the other way of looking at this is that you are receiving state of the art training and coaching in the art of the power nap!

    Take care
