The moment you've all been waiting for...

Some of you may have noticed that we've had just a wee bit of trouble in settling on a name for our newest family member. Therefore I'm pleased to announce that as of last weekend, we have made a decision!

Introducing Riker Donald McMillin:

In the end we decided that Brian could choose the first name and I would choose the middle name. Brian really liked the sound of Riker and chose it for its originality and Donald is in honor of my late father.

All is well and the last three weeks have flown by in a blur. We are still sorting out some breastfeeding challenges and dealing with a general lack of sleep but I think we're getting the hang of this parenting thing bit by bit.


  1. Lovely name, and it suits hime and all of you really well. Being blessed with close proximity (a colleague at ANUgreen) I can confirm the accuracy, and subtle understatements in all of these words.... looks like a great trajectory for this very inquisitive and gentle-seeming new little life and his fabulous parents.

  2. Lovely name, can't wait to meet him (and for the moment the first Australian shortens it to 'Rikey' (!!).) xxx
