I’m over the moon to announce that my little sister has given birth to her second child. Emily was born at 2.44pm July 8th. She was 3.2kg and 49cm long.
She’s super cute and I can’t wait to meet her. She looks amazing and I’m forever in awe that humans can produce other humans.
I’m usually all for living in Melbourne, we’ve been here for almost 9 years, but I have to say, at times like this… when a little one comes into the world, I really miss out and hate being so far away.
Thankfully I have a family that still includes me (mostly), they kept me up to date about Emily’s entry into the world and have kept a steady stream of photos coming so I can ogle and goo and gaa if only from nearly 1,000 km away. We’re heading up there next week and I can’t wait.
Big thanks to Alek, Emily’s older brother, who snapped the last three photos for me, paparazzi style. While the middle one may be blurry I kept it here because it shows just how awesomely he has done with the other two. The room where Emily is currently sleeping is a low-light room and Alek, at only 13, hand-held these shots. He’s shooting with my old Canon 400D at 33mm f4.5 and just 1/15th shutter speed. Hand holding awesomeness at its finest.
