Introducing our Kate...

After 40 weeks and 3 days - I thought I had to wait much longer! - our daughter Kate Elizabeth decided it was time. She was born on Saturday, 2nd August 2008 at 10.41am. It was a beautiful, blue sky morning here in Beijing and the last we've had since which is a pity. At birth she weighed 3.1kg, birth length was 49cm and head circumference was 32cm. My first thought when I first looked at her a minute after she was born was she didn't look anything like me!

Unlike Tom, Kate is born with some hair which is the same colour as Tom's and is a little curly. We were home the next day as I could not get comfortable and was really bored. Kate has settled into home environment really well and Tom has been brilliant with her. A week since she was born and I think she is settling into some kind of routine.
