My sister gave birth to the cutest little baby girl today - she is so perfectly formed and a very nice size - 8 lb 12 oz. Wow, 6 oz heavier than Giselle, so there's a new family record there! She's got the most gorgeous thick hair, with flecks of blonde in it. She's a beauty!
We went down to hospital to see her tonight. My sister looked tired but sooooo happy. And my brother-in-law was beaming ear-to-ear. His little girl fit so perfectly in the crook of his arm. He's just in awe - swears that her look changed even in the 6 short hours since she'd been born! Parents of newborns are just full of awe and wonder... probably mixed with a bit of shock too!
My kids were happy to see the baby but also a bit unsure as to really how to react - the baby is just so little to them. Giselle was a bit afraid to touch her, and was concerned when I stroked the baby's cheek "mommy, don't touch her she'll wake!" Already she's protective!
