On the 13th of January 2014, 08:14, via a Cesarean Section performed by the awesome Dr. Jane La Grange at Mediclinic Vergelegen in Somerset West, little Lotter #2, weighing in at a healthy 3.53 kg, was brought kicking and screaming into this world – say hello to miss Emily Jane Lotter.
Things didn’t quite go according to plan though mind you, Emily did have some fluid on the lungs as a result of the procedure, and as such over-nighted in the NICU (Still that’s a lot better than what poor Jessica had to undergo when she arrived a fair bit ahead of schedule, so I have to say, we’re getting better!).
She also struggled a little with weight loss for the first few days, but other than all that, we’ve been blessed with a very healthy baby girl, with a gorgeous full head of dark hair and a very wise little face.
In other words, awesome.
