Emerson Noni Lowry
has seen us welcome into the world a new member of our little families; my twin sister Christina's little baby girl Emerson Noni Lowry. Congratulations to Christina and Dave!
Emerson made her entrance Monday morning and she and Christina are doing well. Her middle name references yours truly and I feel very privileged that Emerson is in part named after me. Noni is a nickname that my first nephew Kaleb bestowed on me when he was little and couldn't say Fiona, needless to say it has stuck and over the years I have become Noni to all of my nieces and nephews (and also to some of my grown up friends).
My PhD and books got put aside this week as I stayed at Christina's house with her three year old boy Cohen while her husband stayed with her at the hospital. We had a wonderful few days of colouring in, shopping for the baby, going to play group and visiting the hospital. Cohen adores his new little sister and has been loving all the visitors coming to see the baby. My only regret is that Emerson's maternal grandparents have chosen to absent themselves from our lives since my wedding in September and have missed out on this wonderful time.
