It's A BOY!!



I've been telling you all for a while now that my brother Paul and his wife Ella were expecting their first baby ... hence the "Moon Dance" baby quilt design. Well ... I received a text message tonight to say that I'm an Aunty!!

James Kevin Kippen ...

... was born at 4:07pm Northern Territory time (4:37pm EST) and weighed in at a healthy 3.74kg, which the proud Grandma tells me is just over 8lb ... BIG healthy baby boy! :0) James is a family name for our side of the family and Kevin is Ella's Dad's name - what a lovely family legacy.

The report from the somewhat shell-shocked new Dad is that the James is pink and wrinkly ... and has ten fingers and ten toes! Tee! Hee! Hee! The important things to report from a 'boy's' perspective! :0) There are 8 nephews and three nieces on my Beloved Geek Boy's side of the family, but this is the first for my side, so all a bit exciting ... though it's another birthday I have to rememebr! Oh dear! :0)

Well ... I'm off to have a celebratory cup of tea ... just thought I'd let you all know that that baby quilt is going to be needed as soon as I can get it bound after Rosalie has worked her quilting magic! :0) May all your news today be good news, too! :0) Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!
(Blue for boys ... of course! Tee! Hee! Hee!)
CHEERS!

Well, what exciting news for your family Kris. I love the name James and have my own nephew named James... but he does get Jamie a fair bit. Lucky you got that quilt made - hope Rosalie can get that quilting done quickly.
