She's here!

Our daughter was born February 13th, chubby cheeks, beautiful, healthy and with big blueberry eyes.

We were between Avis and to some extent Vesper for her name, even though last minute there were so many second thoughts and insecurities. 

As we met her, we realized our Birdie was not an Avis or Vesper, but a Phoebe. So there, Phoebe Angelina arrived to bring joy and even more love to our worlds. My stepson, Sebastian, is ecstatic with his baby sister and adorably proud to not be an only child anymore.

A huge thanks to all of you wonderful members of this site and forum regulars for being so supportive and helpful in choosing Birdie's name.

All the best to you all,

Beatrice, Daniel, Sebastian and Birdie.
