The Patter of Tiny Feet

Oh wow! I am an Auntie!

My little nephew was born (11 days early) at 4:48am this morning, 6lb 11oz (that's 3.05 kg). Apparently my sister had a rather hard time of it - her waters broke yesterday, she had to be induced, and it was a forceps delivery, and she had to have a blood transfusion, but she and the baby are ok. The baby is called Giacomo Daniele (I've just realised that his parents have named their baby after a brand of whisky... Jack Daniels!!)

I rang the hospital to find out how everyone was, but on hearing that I was merely the sister I was told that a message to say I'd phoned would be passed on.

Thanks to everyone who said a prayer!

Congratulations, Mac! On the name, thank heaven for small mercies. Imagine if the poor mite were called "Glenfiddich".

Wikipedia has a whole article on whiskey brands, of which my favourites are Dufftown and Chivas Regal.

Congratulations to mother and well down to you!

Thanks to everyone for their kind wishes and congratulations...

...I feel like a bit of a fraud... I didn't do anything, and here I am basking in reflected glory...!
