After exactly nine months of morning (and afternoon, and evening) sickness, baby Ridd was born on August 26th, 2010 at 4:13a.m. Although his full name is Peter Ridd McKenzie, he will go by Ridd. He is named after Jeremy’s (Megan’s partner) wonderful granddad Peter Doerksen and the three Ridd’s who have so profoundly influenced Megan’s life: Karen, Bev, and Carl Ridd.
In contrast to the two days of labour with Micah, Ridd was born after a ridiculously short labour- about eight minutes after their arrival at the Women’s Hospital. He weighed 7 lbs, 6 ozs and is a healthy, alert little boy and an enthusiastic eater. Ridd’s big brother says, “Micah yikes Widd and wants give Widd yots big huds.”
Congratulations Megan, Jeremy, and Micah.
