Mary and Brendan are thrilled to welcome their niece Maria born last night at 11:57pm. Congratulations Uncle Chris and Auntie Yukiko! Maria weighed 7 lbs, 8 ounces, which is apparently exactly the same as Uncle Brendan.
We gather labour was fast... Chris and Yukiko called Grandma J around 11pm to come sleep over last night, just in case they had to leave during the night. Fifteen minutes later they called back to tell her she had better hurry! Yukiko says Chris nearly missed the main event while he was parking the car...
My own Auntie Mary was in town today as well, so while we were waiting for visiting hours to begin we went to see the tulips again. It was a beautiful summer day and a walk was just the thing.
Elizabeth was quite excited to meet her newest cousin "on the outside". Maria is currently spending a lot of time sleeping, so our picture taking was limited, but I'm sure this will be rectified in the coming days!
