Yes, My youngest SIL delivered a healthy baby girl at 9.16 am (India time) this morning 🙂 This is her second baby girl, her first born is a cheerful 3.5 year old, girl too.
It was a pre-planned caesarian delivery as the doctor had appointments fixed for the rest of the week. Her due date is supposed to be on the 9th Jan. Everyone inclusive of my MIL wanted her to wait until the due date arrives, but these days the doctor’s diaries actually decide the birthdays of our babies, sadly in India.
Spoke to my second SIL this morning at 4.30 am (Edinburgh time) , Yes, I could hardly get a proper nights sleep with the excitement of knowing a baby was being born into the family. I was back calculating the 5 and 1/2 hours time difference as the caesarian surgery was to begin at 8.45 India time. Later, My MIL called to give us the good news.
For my in-laws this is their 6th Grand child.
- Grand daughter called E (10 year old) from M, who is their first daughter.
- M (7 year old) Grand son – from J and S (Yes – Ourselves) J is their second son.
- C (6 year old) Grand daughter and A (3 year old) Grand son from A , their third daughter.
- C ( 3 year old) Grand daughter and New born baby – grand daughter ( 1 hour and 15 mins old) from V their fourth and youngest daughter.
Exciting times ahead as we will be waiting to meet the new born for the first time during our next trip to Bangalore, Though the baby’s parents live in Chennai.
It’s 5.30 am this morning as I type this blog, I’m sure I cannot find a more exciting topic than this for today, than a new birth in the family !
Have promised M that as he wakes up this morning, I will give him the news about new cousin – for now I know, a baby girl 🙂
