I-Lin had what sounds like an eventful labour experience and Amelia was finally delivered by C section weighing 8lbs and half an ounce or 3.6kg for those into their metric. I heard Amelia cry on the phone when I spoke to Momma Hall. She and Poppa are doing well but extremely tired. 2nd September 2012 - a special day for this happy aunty. Made my heart fill with joy when I-Lin told me she thinks Amelia looks like me when I was a baby! What a great thing to hear.
You can see from this picture whilst we work hard we also take time to laugh which I think is incredibly important.
We went to the Press Club with our friends Kirsty and Marty and were treated to a sensational food experience under the expert hand of George Calombaris. George cooked for us himself and devised a new and exciting menu that even his team hadn't seen before. A truly great evening and there's more details under Restaurant Reviews.
Saturday we had a stripe themed pub crawl! Not really but this photo seems to suggest it! We met up with some of Steve's work colleagues and their wives so there was Jon and Shern, Andy and Stacey and Steve and I. We started at the Matilda Bay Brewery in Port Melbourne and celebrated the first day of Spring.
It's late now - almost midnight - but I can't sleep. I keep looking at pictures of Amelia Grace! It's like I need a fix. I have instructed my cousin Carine to take lots of photos when she goes to visit and as soon as Momma and Poppa have the energy, I want videos and photographs! She is all I can think about right now. I want to ensure she has a happy life, a healthy life and not have to endure any hurt or hardship. I can only imagine that my feelings are merely a fraction of how I-Lin and Graeme must feel.
