Mother and daughter come home

Yesterday was a long day. To get out of bed at 3, have a new daughter at 5, and get home by 7:30 was hard enough. Then to get Liam and dogs organised, text messages sent, blog updated, errands run etc. was enough to keep me busy till lunchtime.
A big thank you goes out to Ralf and Ute, who took Liam in the middle of the night, and subsequently lent me their daughter Anne to keep Liam amused in the swimming pool yesterday afternoon. Anne came with myself and Liam yesterday evening to pick up Heike and Rosalie from the hospital, here are all 5 of us sitting on the hospital bed.

Liam was very happy to finally meet his new sister, and proudly sat her on his knee...

We passed by Heike's brother Harald on the way from the hospital, finally getting home at about 21:00. The neighbours came out in force for an impromptu Sektempfang, which was great.

Eventually we managed to get to bed at about midnight, having been on our feet for 21 hours. Here are the kids finally asleep...

Al, you have not been paying attention. Look at http://www.macartan.de/labels/Baby.html, there are numerous posts forecasting a girl.
