Today, at 10:44am, my sister gave birth to a baby girl. For a while it looked like it was going to be yesterday, but she was in overnight and so the baby didn’t arrive until this morning. At the moment, they’re undecided on a name, so for now she’s just Baby A.
Until this point I’ve not mentioned Genine’s pregnancy on this blog, because it didn’t feel like my story to tell, and I was silently pretty anxious about the whole thing. But the baby is here now, and she’s beautiful, and healthy, and Genine is okay too. Everyone is okay.
They live in London, so I’m not going up/across to see them until the weekend. Mum and Dad have seen both mother and baby (and husband Louis) today, and everyone is doing well. Though, I’d imagine, they’re absolutely exhausted.
I’m excited to meet Baby A, and I’m excited to give my sister a hug. I’m scared of holding the baby, so I might just leave that to people who know what they’re doing, and I’ll just coo over the cuteness from a corner.
Until tomorrow, welcome to the world, Baby A.
