It was an absolute pleasure to meet you last night.
Your Mum told me she’d try to hold on until I got back from my trip, but you came out to join the world while I was still away. That’s OK though – she’d waited a long, long time for you, with far too much heartbreak along the way.
And now that you’re here, I just wanted to tell you that you have the best parents a little girl could wish for. They can’t wait to take you home so you can start life as a family. (I’m sorry you had to see your Dad’s cheesy Star Wars themed birth video on only your second day in the world, but I suppose it’s just as well; you’re going to have to get used to it. Content yourself with the knowledge that you already have more hair than him).
Speaking of family: beyond your parents and your furry siblings, you have a huge extended family of friends and relatives who are very excited that you’re finally here. You’ll be seeing a lot of us! I will be your babysitter and your diaper changer, your Auntie and your friend, and I’ve already signed up to go on your first outings to the aquarium and Science World.
So much fun lies ahead! I can’t wait to get to know you.
All my love,
