“Little Lotte thought, ‘Am I fonder of dolls,
Or of goblins or shoes?
Or riddles or frocks?
Or of chocolates?'”
Introducing the newest member of the Renlish clan, Lottie Elizabeth, my new niece.
And I love her name.*
She was born on February 18, at 10.22am, coming in at a respectable 8.51lb (or 3.86kg) and about 54cm long by c-section. Like her big brother, she’s long but will probably fill out quickly.
And the person probably the most stoked at having a new person in the family is my nephew, Phoenix, who has been wishing for a sibling for a couple of years now.
“‘No – what I love best,’ Lotte said,
‘Is when I’m asleep in my bed
and the Angel of Music sings songs in my head…
The Angel of Music sings songs in my head…'”
*Yes, her name is taken from Phantom of the Opera.
**Because I would have killed someone if they called her Arizona.
