In true knittyknit style, I've delayed this post far too long! Never-the-less, Alice Jennifer was born on Sunday 9th of August weighing 7lb 9oz. She was speedy to arrive once she got going - 3 hours of contractions and POP! Out she came, half an hour after we arrived at the hospital. The poor student midwife who was helping out didn't know what hit her. Luckily, not literally. Alice was a caulbearer. A term I have never come across before. Alternatively, she was born in a caul, which means to be born with the amniotic sac intact. It's supposed to be very good luck - so they say. Anyway. Here she is!
