Meet William Harper McDonald, the newest addition to the Travelfish research team. I'll be taking a couple of days off, so please excuse any late replies to emails, posts etc.

Born 16:40, 10 July 2008, Prima Medika Hospital, Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia.
3,600 grams
51cm long



Mum, Dad, and William, Will, Bill, Billy, Harp, Harper or even Jim, but, under no circumstances, Willy, are all well and back at home after a one-night stay at Prima Medika Hospital.

Will gets his first name from my grandfather William (Jim) McDonald who passed away in December 2007.

Will’s second name is just a name we both really liked. Those into music can consider him named in Ben Harper’s honour, those of a more literary thread, Harper Lee will do just fine.

Big-sister Lyla’s first action upon seeing William was to reach down and kiss him on the forehead ... lovely!

A belated congratulations. The smell of a babies skin has to be one of the sweetest smells on the earth. The 10th of July needs to become a new national holiday throughout SEAsia.
