Baby Hunter Lane’s hurried entry into the world ensured he had plenty of time to celebrate Australia Day with his parents and three brothers.
The son of Heathcote couple Sandi Thompson and Joshua Lane, Hunter was born early on January 26 after only a two-hour labour.
Sandi said the couple was excited their baby was born on such a day.
‘‘I was absolutely rapt,’’ she said.
‘‘His dad Joshua was so excited. I love it. I reckon it’s grouse.
‘‘He’s a true blue little Aussie born on Australia Day.’’
When he was born at 6.58am on January 26 at Bendigo Health, Hunter weighed 4167 grams (9lb 3 oz).
He is a little brother for Ryan 7, Jack, 6, and Isaac, 2.
As well as being Australia Day, Hunter’s birth date holds a special significance to his family as it was also the birthday of his late great-great-grandmother Florence (Flo) Richards.
His full name, Hunter Steven Alwyn Charles, also holds some family history, with the infant taking either the first or middle names from his late grandfather and two deceased great-grandfathers.
