She’s Here!!

My beautiful niece arrived at 5.48 on Monday afternoon!

20140401-172249.jpgI’ve been up to the country today to collect the Kettles, and we went straight to see them (now ensconced in a very posh hotel!) on arriving back in town.

Poppet was sleeping when we arrived, making little snuffling noises and moving around inside her swaddling. She was roused so we could all have a nurse.

How can such a little being hold such a large place in my heart? We’ve only just met but my heart is swollen with so much love for her. She is so beautiful, so tiny, with a cute little nose, long fingers and toes, and a mop of dark hair. I suspect she has us all wrapped around her little finger!

And my LittleBigBrother, a big 6 foot man, handles her with such delicacy and tender care!

Much love
Auntie Meredithe x
