The Princess has arrived


My sister-in-law just gave birth to the first baby girl in our family.

I found her awake yesterday morning a little before 5 AM complaining of the ache in her stomach and how she's got blood all over. I clapped. Hee! My brother was getting ready for the hospital while she sat down and calmed herself and I told her of how it was when I first had signs of labor. Almost 12 hours after that, her daughter was born.

I've got pictures! But I can't post it here since I have yet to tell my brother and sister that I plan to.

The baby, who happens to be named after my grandmother and myself, will be staying with us for a couple of weeks (with her parents of course) and I've been baby-proofing the house for bacteria, mosquitoes and stuff. The place is cleaner than an Intel Lab. LOL!

It's been so long since there was a baby in this house. Needless to say, I'm very excited.

Can I keep her?

I wish she'd permanently stay with us.

My brother and his wife --- they live in the South because work is nearer. We're in the East. They only come by once or twice a month.

I'm already gonna miss the baby.
