Welcome to our world!

We are so happy to welcome little Tessa Araceli to our family!



Friday morning I woke Brian up at 5 am to wish him Happy Birthday and also to let him know that he was probably going to be sharing his birthday with our new baby, and turned out, in less than 6 hours, he was!


Little Tessa made her entrance at 10:46am, born at home and caught by her loving daddy, assisted by a team of fantastic midwives.
She weighs 8lbs and 14oz, is 21 inches long and has a full head of dark hair!


Her name
Tessa is short for Terese and we named after the wonderful and inspiring Saint Therese the little flower, who’s feast day (Oct 1) was the day before her birthday. We came to really want her middle name to Honour Mary, the mother of God and came across the name Araceli which is a Spanish title of Our Lady, the “altar of the sky”. We pronounce it “air-a-chay-lee”.


Thank you for all the prayers and love and support, we have definitely felt it! The big kids are so happy to welcome their little sister to their lives and we are just enjoying every second as we get to know her!


About Amy

Wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt, Godmother, all those good things any many more. Crafter, extrovert, life-long-learner just for the fun of it, when my 4 little (and not so little) babies give me the chance for anything beyond keeping them fed and clean and our lives relatively calm and peaceful.
