Welcome to the World

I’m an aunt again! It’s been a few days of suspense because Cheryl had a grindingly long labour. Her waters broke the day before yesterday and she spent the day with mild contractions. The contractions got close together enough that they went down to the hospital, yesterday morning. And Cheryl finally delivered a little girl at about 1am (Queensland time) this morning. I haven’t had a chance to speak to them yet (it’s not quite 8am at their place and I don’t want to disturb them), but I hope Cheryl’s okay and managed to get some sleep last night.

I took the cell phone to bed with me and woke up to it jangling at just after 3am (NZ time) to give me the news. It’s so exciting waiting for a baby, waiting for a whole new life to join the family.
