Australian Update


(This is actually old news. The day that Christal sent me this email, I immediately thought, I will have to put that news on the blog. Later that same day I found out Allen wasn't coming home, so I have been preoccupied. So, this is news for those of you who didn't already know. Oh, and I'm just basically copying and pasting Christal's email. )

Brad is officially an Australian Citizen, making him a now very proud dual American/Australian. Unfortunately I forgot the camera for drinks with friends that night, it was a great evening - we even had a cake saying "Aussie Aussie Aussie!" (This is almost our national anthem) Our friends Rod and Di put together an Aussie survival kit eski complete with thongs, zinc stick, vegemite, lamingtons, fosters and a kath and kim DVD (Australian TV show - you have to see it to believe it) oh and also a cute little baby boy outfit. Brad has had a huge week, he starts a new job tomorrow (software testing engineer), found out on his birthday we are having a baby boy and became a citizen!

To add to this, the baby boy's name will be Jackson Angus. And, trendsetters that they are, Angus is now one of the frontrunners for Chris and Jamie's baby, if it is a boy. The name Angus will, I'm sure, become one of the most popular new baby names!

Brad said...

Damn I look fat. Is it possible that my head is actually still growing?

I am sure your head had swelled from all the good things that are happening to you! Has Christal been to the doctor lately? How is Little Angus doing? I got a chance to feel Matt and Sharon's baby kicking - it's still an amazing experince to have a new human being touch you!
