Retro-post: 1 week old

This one's brief...and late! But here you go! Two photos* of our little girl at one week.**
This was my nightie when I was a baby... awww....

Daddy and Ailsa hang out, happily, quietly, and unconciously.***

*Of COURSE she always looks like that - quiet and smiling! Hardy har har.

**Ok, it might be gas, but it's the cutest gas I've ever seen!

***Um, shouldn't it be Mommy who's napping???

Proud to Introduce...

Our beautiful daughter, Ailsa* Christine, arrived with a bang on Thursday, June 3rd at 5:41 am.

Weighing 6 lbs 14 oz and measuring 19.6 inches long, she has gorgeous grey-blue eyes and a soft head of dark hair and looks quite like her handsome big brother!

Assorted snaps from the hospital:

Proud Daddy holds his little princess.

Big brother is enthralled by his little sister! He says "baby" whenever he's trying to find her, and can say "Ailsa" quite clearly, too!

Let's not discuss labour and delivery, shall we?

She looks like a little doll when she's asleep, and -- waitaminute! What's that sign?

Apparently, Medicine Hat babies are like Gremlins...

* Many, many questions: It's Scottish, and it's pronounced "Elsa".
