3.30 am, Easter Sunday morning:
April had her baby at 1.50 am Easter Sunday NEW ZEALAND TIME!!!
It was 9.50 am Easter Saturday morning in Harpursville, New York State, USA.
I was so lucky to get to watch it from the very start to the very finish.
I was lucky because at 7 pm last night Keera fell over and landed on her right arm akwardly, and she screamed and cried so bad I took her to hospital!
We were there for only 3 hours, which was amazing for a Saturday night. They took her in straight away, she had an x-ray after about an hour and they said nothing was broken, so we got to come home again... JUST in time for me to see the whole baby birth.
It was awesome to watch... April did an amazing job. Baby was born and up and walking around within an hour. So special.
ABOVE: Baby standing up for the FIRST TIME EVER. It was so magical to watch.
ABOVE: Baby having his/her first feed, after only an hour and 20 minutes from being born. So cute, baby even wagged it's tail, just like a baby lamb when it feeds!
So, after watching the birth, and the first couple of hours of baby's life, I decided it was time for me to get to bed.
It's almost 3.30 am here on Sunday morning.
Keera woke up about an hour ago crying about her arm, so I'm thinking it's going to be a trying day once she gets up in the morning. She will have to be careful of her arm as it's most likely quite sore and bruised.
Poor kid, but accidents happen all the time.
When I get up later on this morning, I will share more photos I took of yesterday (here).
But for now... off to bed for ME!

And NOW I will go to bed!
10.11 am: And I'm up! Bex has done the kid thing and looked after Keera for us while we slept in.
Keera is not a happy kid. I have to wonder if they x-rayed the right area of her arm, cos she's miserable. If she doesn't start using her arm by tomorrow I'm taking her back.
Difficult to know with kids... she could just be milking it... or being a drama queen. That's been known to happen! lol
We will just keep an eye on her and see what eventuates.
Meantime, I might just have some brunch then cut out that sheet.
Photos from yesterday:
6.35 pm: Spent a good couple of hours cutting out fabric this afternoon, before exiting ... stage right.
Done enough for today.
We had Pizza for dinner, no one felt like cooking, certainly not me.
I only got a few hours sleep last night and am knackered... Broadchurch is on tonight, hope I can keep my eyes open to watch it.
Signing off now. Hoping nothing else happens for the day!
