So I knew now anyway. As you might understand, I didn't get much work done the rest of the day. My brother finally called around 3 that they were now the proud parents of a beautiful baby girl! But, even though I live very near to the hospital, only the grandparents were allowed to visit straight away. The rest of us had to wait untill visiting time starts at 7. Which seemed like forever, but she was well worth the wait. She's gorgeous! Welcome to the family, little Nora!
It's taken a few months, but finally.. she's arrived! My niece Nora Luz was born just a few hours ago. I was working from home today, completely oblivious, untill one of my brothers colleagues mailed me asking if I had any news. Apparently they'd gone to hospital in the wee hours of the night, but -as agreed- to avoid stress hadn't notified any family.
