Birth of baby Janine

Posted by Dawn at Saturday, January 28, 2006
This morning, I woke up and quickly checked my TV whether the channels are all gone and I was happy I could still view all the cable channels. So happy. I received call from my mum early in morning to let me know that Pam is in the hospital as she had contractions...

Pam is my sister in law. My bro and Pam got married in Dec- few months later than me and during their trip to Mobile, Alabama to visit me and my parents after the accident, we found out that Pam was pregnant as she had no appetite when she came. So we brought her to the doctor near my apartment in US and discovered she was pregnant. It was indeed God's gift to our family as it was timely.

Anyway, time passes so quickly and the baby was supposed to be due 2nd week of Feb. So, I was kinda shocked to hear she was in hospital already. At 905am, my bro sms me and told me that Pam gave birth to baby Janine at 9:03am weighing 3.05kg at 50cm. She is considered to be tall..Thinking of my brother as a dad seems unthinkable as he loves to play and when the next phase of life comes, it is just difficult to accept and watch people 'grow up'. Hehe..But def, I was very happy for my brother and Pam.

My mum went to Thomson Medical Centre with Pam's parents in the same car and I went later. Marianne and Joshua were already there when I went and it was a joy to see everyone taking turns to carry the baby. She has lots of hair...

Of course, I brought my camera along to take lots of pictures..It is always a pleasure to take pictures, though my preference is scenery...

Baby Janine's chinese name is Hui En. They chose the name to represent God's gift to them..I remembered in Alabama when we told dad about Pam being pregnant, he told us that he was praying for a grand child and it seems that God assured him. God is good!

Janine was happily sleeping and at times, she would open up one of her eyes to peek...

Here is the happy family...
