Introducing Caitlin Rose

January 31st, 2008 by Susannah

Caitlin Rose 25.1.08

Our lovely Caitlin Rose arrived at 5.58pm, Friday January 25th.
All 9lb 13oz of her!

Such a surreal, overwhelming and incredible experience. I am still trying to come to terms with the fact that she is out and I am home already. I wasn’t due until this week but I was starting to feel like I was going to be pregnant forever!

Eloise is taking it all in her stride. She is beside herself with excitement at being a ‘big sister’ and we’re all settling into life with a newborn in the house. Having a 3 year old serves as a constant reminder that time flies by so very quickly. I can peek into her room in the middle of yet another sleepless night and be reminded that it all turns out okay in the long run…that’s how I aim to keep my sanity this time around anyway!
