I'm Auntie Laura all over again!

My sister had her baby in the early hours of this morning and it's a little boy! Even though I had the feeling it was going to be a boy all the way through Sally's pregnancy it's still a bit of a shock. What with my sisters Sally and Emily and my niece Robyn I'm a bit used to dealing with girl babies so having a nephew is going to be a real change!

The baby doesn't have a name yet, bless him. Robyn seems very pleased with her new brother and he seems very content and quiet... at the moment!

The photo above is me with my new nephew (he needs a name!) and Robyn.

Give Robyn & big hug & my love - what a beautiful sister to have :-)

Finally, good luck! I hope all goes swimmingly over the next few weeks.

Congratulations Laura!

The main difference between girl babies and boy babies is the nappy change.....point it down! Also when he gets cold he'll go again so don't take the nappy away till he's done...i've learnt the hard way at work on postnatal!

Enjoy him xx

Congratulations on being an auntie again and to your sister's family!

Are you having a competition for naming the baby?! ;-) Probably best not ...

What super news for you, lots of people were busy 9 month ago! Your sisters arrival is the third I have heard of this week.
Enjoy him whilst he is little, they grow up so quickly.

Aw - thanks everyone!

No Sue, no naming contest! I hope Sally and Paul hurry up and give him a name soon, though.
