Fiona Grace

Ms. Fiona Grace became a part of our family at 9:55 pm tonight (April 11th) and you have never and will never come across a more proud aunt! After a grueling 38 hours of labour the decision was finally made to deliver by c-section as no amount of pushing was going to force an eleven pound baby out of my tiny sister!! Yes, that is correct, and even eleven pounds! My amazing sister pushed with all her might for over three hours and impressed and surprised the heck out of the doctors and residents with the progress she was able to manage but Fiona was doing everything in her power to thwart her efforts! But oh is she worth every last bit of that effort!!

Fiona Grace

She is simply beautiful with intensely deep blue eyes and dark black curly hair. And her cheeks are so large that they may even make up at least three of her eleven pounds! Until we brought the cameras out with the flashes, she was bright eyed and very alert, and quite content to suck on her middle finger! She did “talk” to us when we were holding her however in the softest little noises.

I think I may be glowing and beaming as much as the mother and father….I am positively bursting with joy!! I am so proud of Alana and Adam and I am thrilled to be Auntie Sav!

  5. Welcome lil Fiona Grace.. She is a cutie.. I do remember 38 hours of labour that wasn’t fun but then again I had a 8pnder, I don’t know if I could have handled anything bigger then that..

  6. Wait till she puts up the pics of the cheeks!!!

  7. Congrats to you on becoming an aunt (I too was very proud the day that happened to me) and to your sister on bringing such a beautiful not-so-little (WOW!) girl into this world. Those cheeks are VERY impressive indeed. I look forward to any more photos you will post. (On a side note, I can’t believe she’s already here, I still remember the post when you wrote about how your sister was pregnant…)

  8. (and please don’t take “already here” to be in any way about the 38 hour labour. Mine was like that too and would never joke about it…)

  9. Sorry about this Sav, but i did NOT mean for there to be a smiley up there I just closed the brackets… *sigh*… I’m going to stop typing now.

  10. ‘glowing and beaming as much as the mother and father’ … Do I detect a subtext of broodiness? :p
