Just Born: Little Harry Cadwallader
The birth of a baby boy to Siobhan and Richard Cadwallader
Siobhan and Richard Cadwallader from Lisburn have welcomed a son into the world.
Harry weighed 8lbs 3.5oz and measured 52cms when he was born at the Ulster Hospital on August 21 at 12.36am.
Harry's middle name Thomas is a family name on Richard's side.
Siobhan (26), a service manager, and Richard (32), a team leader, are thrilled with the new addition to the family – their second child.
Harry's big sister Isla, just 19 months old, is excited to have a little brother.
"She's very thrilled with him," Siobhan said.
"She didn't fully understand until she met him. She wanted lots of cuddles – it was nice to see.
"He looks like his sister when she was born, but with a bit more hair. Richard and I were delighted to see him, we thought we were having a wee boy."
Proud dad Richard is looking forward to checking out the latest boys' toys with Harry when the time is right.
"We are both very happy," Siobhan said.
"Harry's arrival was very emotional. Richard is delighted he can buy a Scaletrix set – any excuse now he has a little boy to play with."
Siobhan described the Ulster Hospital team as "fantastic".
"I had a really good experience," she said.
"It's the second time I've delivered there.
"The midwives are all lovely."
"We have been inundated with lovely messages from our friends and family," Siobhan added.
"We are looking forward to getting home and settled."
