Elke HeunisElke was a week old yesterday. It is unreal how time has flown since she was born on the 27th of September. Her birth was an emotional roller coaster to say the least. I tend to get very focussed and quite grim during times of stress, so it was only a day or so afterwards that I could think about the “miracle” of life. But it still doesn’t feel like Elke is our own!

As promised, her are some photos (better than the ones that sent from the hospital).

Lene was an absolute star. I have to doff my cap to her for her courage and bravery.

Sofar Elke is perfectly healthy, but man alive she can scream!! Lene is doing sterling work with her, but it is tiring for her. Elke’s worst times of the day is between 12 and 5 in the morning.

Lene is also recovering well from the birth.

Thanks to everyone for all the support and messages.
