A Child is Born

My younger sister had her daughter at 16.20 today, after a long day at the Wellington hospital. My niece weighed in at 7.5 pounds (I am not sure of the kilogram conversion and have no idea why people tell me things like a baby's weight in pounds) and both she and her mother are doing well.

Sometimes it is nice to take time out and post a bit about my personal life. I won't be here for my niece's first birthday - or for my youngest brother's 13th birthday, for that matter - as my contract is until 27 July 2009. I hope that things will go well and I will be delighted to extend my time as an ALT with JET; but as I've said before: I'd like to take this one year at a time. A lot can happen in twelve months!

To the future!

Thanks, Tina. As of now, my niece is still in the ICU because she had a little problem with breathing. She and my sister should be out of the hospital in a few days, so keep praying :)

I'm not really big on baby pics, so no promises ;)
