William Harper McDonald

Meet William Harper McDonald
Born 16:40, 10 July 2008, Prima Medika Hospital, Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia.
3,600 grams
51cm long

Mum, Dad, Lyla and Will, Bill, Billy, Harp, Harper or even Jim, but, under no circumstances, Willy, are all well and back at home after a one-night stay at Prima Medika Hospital.

While the photo doesn’t do the likeness justice, he’s an absolute spitting image of Stuart’s father.

Will gets his first name from Stuart’s Grandfather William (Jim) McDonald who passed away in December 2007.

Will’s second name is just a name we both really liked. Those into music can consider him named in Ben Harper’s honour, those of a more literary thread, Harper Lee will do just fine.

Big-sister Lyla’s first action upon seeing William was to reach down and kiss him on the forehead…lovely!

Birth stories and loads more photos on the way, but in the meantime, thanks for all the messages of congratulations and support –you’re all of course welcome here in Bali to deliver them in person!


Stuart, Sam, Lyla, William
