On Friday 26 March this year I became Auntie to little Isabella. She came into the world at 00:03 (*earlier than expected) weighing 3.26kg, with a head circumference of 33cm and a body length of 46cm. As part of my baby shower gift to my sister, I organised a voucher from Jeanette for a newborn shoot. The pic below was taken at the shoot and you can go here to see the rest.

Now the reason for this post, besides being a super proud Auntie, is because my sister has asked me to be Bella’s godmother. What an absolute honour! And what an important role to play! The christening is taking place in December and I’m really looking forward to it. Looking forward to being a role model and guide for this precious little girl. It’s going to be a challenge at times, I’m sure, but I’ll be ready… Any sage advice for the meantime?

* My sister had a c-section scheduled for that Friday morning at 8:00 but little Isabella just couldn’t wait. My sister went into labour late Thursday night and after a very quick and easy labour, she gave birth. My sister and I joke that the reason why Isabella arrived earlier is because I prodded my sister’s belly one too many times. You see I used to push and prod the belly just so I could feel little Bella move.
