A FAMILY have welcomed a ‘lovely little man’ into their lives.

Dave Sams and Gail Brown from Weymouth welcomed Archie Ernest William Sams into their family on October 25 weighing 9lbs and 2oz.

Archie is brother to Gail’s children Harriet, 19, Ashley, 15 and Jessica, 12.

Dave said: “I’m really proud. It’s good, really great.”

Gail said that Archie was doing well. She said: “We’re getting on fine. He’s two weeks old now and he’s found his lungs. He’s grown really well.”

Archie was a big baby and broke his collar bone being born, as well as having jaundice, but the family say he is getting on well.

She added: “He’s brilliant, a really lovely little man.”

The family would like to thank the midwives at Dorset county Hospital for all their help and support and especially Pat, Michaela and Bev.
