Jessica Ann Rettberg
Jessica Ann Rettberg was born two days ago, on Saturday April 19, at 11:45 am. She weighs 3655 grams and is 50 cm long, and is absolutely beautiful. Everything went very well, really, well, you know, obviously the whole giving birth thing is extraordinarily hard work (just try relaxing through a hideous contraction so the baby can finish rotating down the birth canal) – but I had great support from Scott and the midwives at our hospital and everything went really well. We’re back at home and apart from her tendency to want to sleep all day and wake all night, we’re doing wonderfully. Here she is, just ten or fifteen minutes after she was born.
Jessica hasn’t started blogging yet, but Jason Nelson made us a beautiful birthday present for her, look at this!

jill/txt » the World of Warcraft Reader makes a very nice cat bed
[…] In between feeding Jessica, cuddling Jessica, changing Jessica’s many nappies, trying to give my eleven-year-old a bit of much-needed big sister attention and (not least) trying to catch up on sleep, I’ve been eagerly following the fate of the World of Warcraft Reader. It’s risen like a rocket on the Amazon bestseller list, from 132,000th most sold book last week to around the 6000th today. Yesterday it even had a brief spell in the 3000s! Awesome. Even our cat, Maestro, approves of the book. Not to read, I’ll admit, but it’s a real comfy cat bed! Filed under:General — Jill @ 10:53 [ ] […]
