I am thrilled to announce that my newest niece arrived safely on December 23rd at 1:04 am! She tipped the scale at 7 lbs, 4 oz and measured 21″ long.
My sister Denise, who was induced for her first daughter’s delivery (Olivia is now 5 years old), laboured at home for about 20 hours. I was the DD as the lower mainland of British Columbia has been unusually blanketed in more than a foot of snow for over a week now and I am the only one who has a 4×4! When we arrived at the hospital, she was fully dilated and delivered the baby in about 20 minutes and 3 pushes! Way to go Denise! Dr C, our amazing family doctor, didn’t quite make it in time, but the nurses as Royal Columbian Hospital were fantastic.
Oh and I should mention that Dixie has a really good latch, has been feeding beautifully and Mom Denise will be pumping in 4-6 weeks with her PumpEase®.
Dixie, named after my Dad Richard, who almost always went by “Dick”, is a truly beautiful baby. What an amazing Christmas present! Drop a comment below if you are a Christmas baby or if one of your children are.
