Presenting…….Charlotte Emma Grace Cairns

After much deliberation we decided on a name! it only took about 8 hours! We had 6 names this morning, which was narrowed down to 3 by the time we got from the operating theatre to the room. We spent most of the day flip-flopping from name to name! We just couldn’t make up our minds.

At 11:30 I took Luke home for his lunch and a nap. When I came back to the hospital, both myself and Jen had discarded one of the 3 names. So it was a choice of two! Charlotte or Emma. We couldn’t decide! So we just thought, why not give her both! but which one would be the first name?

We had a great nurse, called Tanya, so we asked her and she said she preferred Charlotte, that is the way Jen had been leaning so Charlotte its is!

She is feeding well and has only dropped 2 ounce over the course of the day. Well enough of rambling I know you want to see the pictures. So here are a few snaps. More will follow!

    She is just perfect, as is her name. She looks so much like Luke already. What a little darling! Hope you are all doing well.

    Tim and Jen, she is beautiful! Is this what a newborn is supposed to look like? She seems so tiny. Can’t wait to get my chance to hold her. Guess I’d better get myself on the nursery rotation soon! Again, many congratulations to your growing family.

    Congratulations to you both. The name is perfect, like something from a beautiful story or better still the author of a beautiful old story. You will see a big difference with Charlotte and Luke, girls are really different in temprament from the getgo. They are also smarter :p
