I’m an Aunty!!!!!
I’m very proud to announce the birth of my niece, Alissa Eloise Grace, at Sydney’s North Shore Private Hospital at 5:00pm today, by caesarian section. Alissa apparently screamed but was extremely well behaved soon after birth and probably rather pleased to be able to stretch a bit after being lodged in her Mum’s pelvis for the last several weeks! Her birth weight was 3.6 kilos (7 pounds 14 ounces in the old scale), her length was about 57cm.
My brother, Andrew, and his lovely wife, Eloise, are both incredibly happy and relieved as well as awfully tired after several nights of no sleep in the lead up to today, so I’m hoping that they both will get some sleep early tonight and will enjoy their day with their beautiful little girl tomorrow – their first full day as parents!
I’m flying down to Sydney to meet my niece on Friday (and meeting up with Alissa’s Grandma and namesake, my very happy mother, Alison), so I will be sure to have pics up online on Friday night of the entire family! In the meantime, please enjoy the Baby Girl theme for my website!
*proud glow from Aunty Jo!*
