Dear Dainty,

You’re here!  You’re here!!!

We’ve been so excited.  We’ve wanted to have you for a long time { since your big sister, Bunty, was 9 months old } and we’ve prayed for you and when we finally found out we were DEFINITELY going to have you { via CVS genetic testing }, we were overjoyed.

Welcome to the fam!

Welcome to the alpha thalaessamia trait fam where we – me, your dad, your big sis and you – all have two abnormal alpha global genes on the same chromosome!  I’ll explain it to you when you’re older but basically, do not follow in my footsteps and marry someone with the same blood genetic disorder otherwise you’ll be in for a lot of heartbreak.

Anyway, you arrived in a different way to your big sister and I must write down all the details before my mummy brain takes over and I forget.

I have described you as ‘little but loud’.  However, you’re not exactly little weighing in at 3.73kg but you’re a little little-r  than your big sister who was 0.1kg heavier { but in all fairness, she baked 9 days longer than you… }

We can already see a lovely sister bond forming between you two.  Every time your big sister comes home, she rushes to see you and she says “Big sister is home now” and kisses you.  It is simply gorgeous.

That said, she said you were smelly yesterday when she kissed you!!  But that’s because you had some dried spit up in the corner of your little pouty mouth haha.

You’re 8 days old today so you’re still sleeping most of the time and I am going to enjoy as many newborn baby snuggles on the couch as I can.

We love you loads and can’t wait to have more precious daily moments with you.  Thank you for joining our fam.

Love your Mama x
