Default New Baby

Just wanted to share our news...

Today (Sunday 29th) my wife gave birth to our third, perfectly adorable little boy.

Born at 14:35 weighing 7lb 4oz. We've named him "Xander".

Both he and Mum are doing great and his two big brothers (6yrs and 3yrs) are completely stoked.

Our eldest had said that if it was a boy, he was going to put him in the bin/trash. But having met him now, he says we're ok to keep this one but if the next one (getting a little ahead of himself) is a boy, that one will just "have to go" apparently?!


I'm not entirely sure what's what from hereonin in terms of immigration status etc, but I'm sure we'll find out soon enough... but in the meantime I'm informed that Xander will be entitled to an NZ Passport from birth.

If that turns out to be true, it's slightly amusing given the rest of his family are still awaiting news of their PR application!

Anyhow... that's it. I'm a new Dad all over again and sat here alone whilst the other two boys are fast asleep in bed, facing the prospect of retiring to a cold bed alone... I just had to share my news with someone!

Congratulations ... but if you are not PR at the time of birth, then he's not a New Zealand citizen. He should have your existing status automatically but you will need to add him to your PR application.

Better make sure it's a girl then. Or if it turns out to be a boy you could always sell it to Angelina or Madonna, neither of them have a Kiwi baby [yet!]

Very many congratulations . Welcome to this world Xander.
May all his days be happy, healthy and prosperous.


As JAJ states , if you are not of PR status, you need to add your new babe to your PR application.

Congrats

When I was expecting our third our eldest, then aged around 3 - 4 years, asked "when we get the new baby do we give her back?" pointing to his sister

Thank you, everyone, for all the good wishes.

Mum and son are doing fine and me and the other two are just about hanging on to the running of the house without her :-)

All being well the two of them could be out of hospital and home tomorrow!



On the subject of passports etc, I figured it was probably too easy but just hadn't had time to look in to it beforehand... he wasn't due until June 10th so he caught us somewhat by surprise! I wasn't too concerned about it anyway as we'd just go along with it regardless.

However...

Just noticed that we'd somehow overlooked an email from Immigration on May 23rd telling us that the status of our application had changed. Logged in to check immediately and it looks supiciously like our PR application has been approved.

Going to email our case-office to ask for confirmation before throwing a party but.... it's looking good so far.

:-)
