She was a tad early (but not as much so as her Mum) and Arabella, Ingrid and Frances are all doing well, as are Alex and I representing the male side of the business.
We will be visiting later this evening and photos may be taken! Watch this post, although Arabella may get her own blog, at least until she is old enough to sign up for Facebook!
I will try to avoid schmaltz - check wikipedia for the lovely etymology - in this and future posts about herself. So we went to visit her some 5 hours after birth and, as we were escorted in by proud and tired Dad Alex, saw herself through the nursery window.
By 13 January for quite a bit of the day she was hanging out with her Mum in her private room. So Grumpa was able to get a snap from up close.
By 17 January the jaundice had declined quite a lot. She also managed to keep her eyes open long enough for me to get a look and a snap of a happy chap(ess).
On 19th the eyes could not be persuaded to open. Not even by tickling behind the ears, which will persuade the Mammal Who Cannot Be Compared (who said 'woof'?) to do most anything! Frances did get this very peaceful shot of a small person without a gavage tube: Yayyyy!
