I have a new nephew! My sister Alicia gave birth to Xander on Tuesday. Here she is at Charlotte's wedding just over two weeks before. She barely looked pregnant...

And here is little Xander, born 6½ weeks early! He is awesome - he's small at 2.5kg (about 5½ pounds) but he's chubby, has good lungs and is doing fantastically!! He will have to stay in hospital for a month and visitors aren't allowed to touch him, so we won't visit them in Sydney until after he comes home.

Monday was an exciting day - while I was thinking and worrying about Alicia being in labour, Tassy decided to get her ears pierced! She was very brave and is sooooo excited about finally have pierced ears! I was so proud of her for being so brave even though she knew it was going to hurt.

Another wonderful memory recorded and so beautifully. I Love the pinks and lace and flower. Tassy is such a lucky girl to have these records kept of her life experiences. Doing Family History I often wonder what each ancestor was really like - most I don't even know what school they went to, yet Tassy's ancestors which have a wonderful record of her life. love you aaj

I'm so excited to meet Xander too! He's such a cutie in all the pics.
I'm so happy Tassy got her ears pierced! Do you think I convinced her? On the morning of our wedding I was telling her how I got my ears pierced for my 8th birthday and how Nanny and Poppy bought me my first pair of real earrings and how I still have them! I asked was she going to get hers pierced, at first she was like NO! Then after I had told her my story she was a little more for it! LOL!

I'm glad Tassy was reddly to get her ears pierced!
