(pronounced Eefa)...a beautiful Irish name for a beautiful Irish/Australian girl. Slow to start, your labor sure picked up speed...10 pounds but not a stitch...your momma was the picture of calm and strength and your dad was right there lending his own quiet strength and telling the world that you were a girl!
What luck to have a nurse who used to work in a birth center (the same one where I, myself, gave birth to my second son), as well as such a wonderful doctor - a true gaurdian of the sanctity of birth.
Welcome to the world, Aoife!
My 4yo was right - you were born on 2/10!
