Welcome to Seth Frederick Barton Johansen

Welcome to the world, Seth Frederick Barton Johansen! Seth is the son of Tamara and myself. He was born on the 3rd of November 2012, at 12:21 PM EST at the Wesley Hospital. He weighed 2728g (6 pounds), which is a bit small, but just fine. He also got a bit jaundiced (swallowing blood isn't good for you at that age).
 He's now 10 days old, and looking good:

Seth is a biblical name and means "Appointed". Seth was the son of Adam, and is an ancestor to Jesus. He replaced Abel, who was killed by Cain (Genesis 4:25).

He is a little bundle of joy. Good work Tamara (if you're reading this) - you did a great job growing him and giving birth to him - I'm very privileged to be married to you. Thanks Wesley Hospital for supporting Tamara and Seth through labour and the next few days, and to our heavenly father for his blessings, including our first son.
The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps. (Proverbs 16:9)

Also, thanks for the well wishes, hugs, flowers, and gifts everyone. They are lovely and appreciated.

P.S. The Wesley Hospital is a great place to have a baby - I can hardly recommend it highly enough. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and went beyond my expectations.
