Brooke Grace Winen

18 April 2010

We are over the moon.....and delighted to announce the arrival or darling little.....
Brooke Grace Winen to our family.

Alex.... wonder Mum did an amazing job.....we are so proud of her......
They dropped Bella at our place at around 10.30pm last night......and Brooke was born at 11.21pm - 17/04/10
She weighs 6lb 15oz (although they are re-weighing her this afternoon to double check she looks quite a bit smaller than it may change)
She is so tiny....makes the most adorable little sounds when she sleeps....and although I thought she looked different to Bella as a baby.....Ive since changed my mind.....she is a Bella clone....

We are about to head back for another visit and Ill leave you with these photos....

..and just for comparison....and so you can see why I changed my mind..... here are Bella and Brooke..... at almost exactly the same hours old....


  1. Oh my, well done, congrats and all that, she is so totally adorable Mardi. Baby Bella is now a big sister and she looks absolutely besotted with her little sister.
    CONGRATULATIONS again Mardi. Ahhh makes me all clucky seeing little bubbas.
