A successful cut and extract

Two girls each weighing 3kg (7lb) were extracted at 8am (14th and Good Friday) today after Hippie Niece went into labour at about five weeks premature. Both are well, as is Niece. No humidity crib required. They have nice names, even though one is gender non identifying and the other a slightly hippieish  name. I like the names.

Tradie Brother's dog broke the news to his neighbours.

  1. Wonderful news.
    7 pounds, and over a month premature? They would have been HUGE if she had gone on any longer.

  2. Congratulations to your niece and the rest of the family.
    I repeat EC's comments about their size. I guess they knew it was time to say hullo to everyone.

  6. EXTRACTED Andrew?????? Really?????? Mum thought you had been to the dentist there for a while but thought 7 pound teeth was a bit too far fetched. What great news though, aye?? Tradie brother's dog did a great job on the announcement. I'm sending whippy, sloppy kisses to the little bunnies but Mum would like you to give them a cuddle from her. Could you do that?? Oh ...... and she said make sure you smell their heads. Babies heads apparently smell good to her. Go figure, aye???

    1. Charlie, I wrote cut and extract because I can't spell the big C word, not that you will ever know anything about that. My first cuddle with them will include you. Babies do love a good dog lick. I like the milky smell of babies. Does that come out through their heads?

  7. 7 pounds each?? No wonder she was nearly unable to walk. My biggest baby was a bit under 7 pounds and I thought that was quite big enough.
    Congratulations to your niece.
