Welcome Dixie Katheryn Rose Corbett

I am thrilled to announce that my newest niece arrived safely on December 23rd at 1:04 am! She tipped the scale at 7 lbs, 4 oz and measured 21" long.

My sister Denise, who was induced for her first daughter's delivery (Olivia is now 5 years old), laboured at home for about 20 hours. I was the DD as the lower mainland of British Columbia has been unusually blanketed in more than a foot of snow for over a week now and I am the only one who has a 4x4! When we arrived at the hospital, she was fully dilated and delivered the baby in about 20 minutes and 3 pushes! Way to go Denise!  Dr C, our amazing family doctor, didn't quite make it in time, but the nurses as Royal Columbian Hospital were fantastic.

Oh and I should mention that Dixie has a really good latch, has been feeding beautifully and Mom Denise will be pumping in 4-6 weeks with her PumpEase™.

Dixie, named after my Dad Richard, who almost always went by "Dick", is a truly beautiful baby. What an amazing Christmas present! Drop a comment below if you are a Christmas baby or if one of your children are.

Wow, your new little niece has the same eyes as you and your sister! The family resemblance is unmistakable. She is so plump and gorgeous! Congratulations to you all.

My daughter was a New Year's baby (Jan 2nd), and her two grandmas are Dec. 25th, & 27th, so we are well practiced at the fine art of celebrating birthdays during the holidays. It's a wonderful time to be born!

Congratulations to you all!

Hi Suzanne!

Thanks for the comment. My 2nd daughter, Michaela, will be 2 on January 2nd. She was due New Year's Eve but decided to wait it out until a brand new year.

Best to you and your family over the holidays!
