Welcome Arabella Lilly Russell, into a complex world

At 10:58am Adelaide time, on the first day of the Southern Hemisphere spring, Arabella was born as planned, 10 weeks premature and 1.06 kg (37 ounces). Pink and wiggly, and spending at least 6 weeks in hospital.

As some of you know, Alli and I are separated: she left me 3 months ago. I came to Adelaide for Arabella's birth, then I'm going back for a couple of weeks to pack up the farm, then returning to Adelaide because Arabella is here. I hope we manage to raise Arabella OK despite our split.
