Sunday, the 28th of September

28 Sep

Yesterday, on the 27th of September 2014, Baby Alexander Robert, a brother for two year old Lucas, was born in Wollongong Hospital. Ryan and Ebony made it to the hospital barely an hour before little Alex was born. Twelve hours later they were already on their way back home, where the first family visits soon arrived.

Today, on Sunday, Caroline came from Sydney to see the new baby. Peter and I picked her up from Dapto Station. Caroline arrived on a rail bus. There were no trains today because of track work. Towards 3 o’clock in the afternoon Peter, Caroline and I could see Β the new baby for the first time. He is such a sweetie! The baby had been born soon after midnight on Saturday. So this afternoon he would have been going towards forty hours, that means he is still less than two days old! It was great that Ebony was allowed to go home already.

Soon there were cups of coffee and cheese-cake for everyone.

In the morning I had been going to church. I noticed some beautiful yellow roses and took some pictures of them after Mass.

It was a lovely, balmy sunny morning. In the afternoon the temperature reached 28 Degrees Celsius. We felt that this was a bit like a summer day already. I have not been to the swimming pool for a while. If we have some more weather like we had today, I might have the courage to go for a swim some time soon. So far we had either clouds and a bit of rain or very strong winds. But maybe the next few days are going to be very pleasant. I hope so! πŸ™‚

    Congratulations! What a little sweetie. I think Lucas was more interested in the cheesecake …

      Thank you, Cat. Oh yes, very sweet! Lucas is always very interested in cake. He is very calm and accepting about having a little brother. He acts already as though this baby has always been around. πŸ™‚

        My granddaughter is expecting her 3rd in March. The other two have “ordered” a little sister, and say if it’s a boy, they will send it back!

      Thanks, Sheila. Have a good week too. I am going to enjoy the warm weather while it lasts. At the moment it feels already a bit like summer even though spring only just started here in Australia.
      Cheerio, Uta oxx

    A new little person enters. It is so interesting to look at such a tiny one and ponder who he will become, as they do become their own little persons!

      Exactly, Linda. Look at Lucas, how tiny he was two years ago and look at him now! πŸ™‚
