Yesterday was an early start for us… we had a sudden trip to Sydney….
I am announcing the birth of my first grand-daughter by the name of Claire Elizabeth. Her weight was a hefty 11lb 6oz or 5.28 kg. Her length is roughly 21 inches or 52cm (I think I have the length correct).
She is in the Neonatal intensive care unit until her blood sugar stabilizes. Her mother is a diabetic with Type 1 diabetes.
I am so glad that it is over, but really a Sumo wrestler? You should see the pictures my son took at the time of the birth 🙂
UPDATE: The mother is out of the hospital but Claire has not been give the all clear to leave. The latest is that she is having some feeding issues. She is being fed with formula because her mother cannot breastfeed. There must be some other reason that they want to keep her there just a little bit longer but hopefully she will be out of the hospital and home by the end of the week. Besides I have a lot of new clothing after my spending spree to pass on to the proud parents.
In other news, I can announce that my middle son and his partner have purchased a property. It is the ideal situation for them and they had to act give such an opportunity!! It is also ideal for my grandson, Nathan and it will not disrupt his life too much 🙂
