Introducing Baby Sister!

Well, after much anticipation, Evelia (Lia for short) finally put in an appearance yesterday, weighing in at a massive 9lbs 15oz, what a whopper! 

Libby is delighted to have a baby sister and Lia has fitted right in. I am wearing her in a ring sling so we’re to keep going with Libby’s normal routine and baby sister just tags along.

Induction was horrific as expected, but not as bad as last time. We came home from hospital yesterday and we’re both doing fine. I will post some more updates soon!

    Hoorrrrrrray! Congrats! Where did the name Evelia come from? It’s really unusual. Sorry the induction was rubbish. But she’s here….yey!

      Thanks Jess, Evelia is a Hebrew name, the name Evelyn derived from it and people have since stopped using Evelia in favour of Evelyn but we preferred Evelia 🙂
