6WS - Our newest little ray of sunshine

In the early hours of this morning a little ray of sunshine arrived in our family. The first girl born on either side of our families for 34 years - with 7 boys ahead of her.

So excited was she by the celebrations she knew were awaiting her that she got a little bit excited and arrived 6 weeks early. Her mummy got a special flight to Adelaide from the Riverland because of this overeager little bundle of joy wanting out sooner than the doctors had planned.

Her Auntie Fi did a little party dance because while the family have to be away from home, she gets to visit the newest addition before half of the family in the Riverland get to meet her.

She's not shouting her glee from the rooftops too much though because it would have been better for bubby to stay put and be born at home so that her over excited big brother could meet his 'sistah' and so that they could all be together as a family.

We're all exceptionally happy that she arrived safe and well and that everyone is doing fine. This little princess was a long, hard fought for, bundle of joy and I'm beyond happy for my brother, my sister-in-law and their little man who's now a proud big brother.

You guys rock and I'm reserving the top spot on the list for babysitting duties

Love yas, Fi xxx

  9. Congratulations! Will the baby need to stay in the hospital for awhile to gain weight or anything?

    1. Yes Karen, she'll have to stay in till she reaches at least the 37 week mark, so about 3 weeks. Means I get my sister-in-law here with me for that time. It's hard on them though because my brother has to go home for work and also because their little boy had to stay behind with his grandparents.

      Not ideal when babies come early in the country and you have to go to the city for medical support.

  13. Gee Aunti Fi - I was relying on you to have at least taken some photos to share with those left at home! Seems like Dad has forgotten how to take one - she's over 24 hours old now and no photos yet! A real little angel to fill our hearts with more love.
