Happy day! My nephew and his wife have just had their first baby-a girl weighing 9lbs 12oz! I'm a great aunt now as well as a Nanna!

9 lbs 12 oz - blimey oh riley!

Congratulations how wonderful wine I hope you get to see a lot of the new little one.

Congrats KateK.
Aren't all these little ones great. I have great nieces and nephews and one of the girls was over 10lb...ouch!!

Wonderful news, congratulations! flowers

My latest DGS was 10lb 4oz. He hadn't been flagged up as a big baby and was 3lb heavier than his big brother.

Wonderful news....'Great Aunt' sounds so dignified!

Katek Wed 20-May-15 13:43:45

My dgc were tiny at around 6lb and that was bad enough! I feel as a great aunt I should go a bit Margaret Rutherford or perhaps Joan Hickson??

Katek Wed 20-May-15 13:45:21

Posted too quickly! Thanks for all the good wishes, it's just lovely to have another new baby in the family! grin

Katek Wed 20-May-15 13:46:36 dc not dgc! Think I need a lie down!

Jane10 Wed 20-May-15 13:53:49

Have a nice lie down and feel all happy when you wake up and remember your lovely (whopping) great niece!

I've been a Great Aunt for nearly 20 years. I suppose Great Great Aunthood might be beckoning soon. shock

I've been a great aunt for 25 years - I found the experience quite unnerving as I was only just 41.

PRINTMISS Wed 20-May-15 15:43:20

Lovely news Katek. A new life is always a joyous occasion. What are they going to call their new baby?

Nelliemoser Wed 20-May-15 16:10:42

Congratulations Great Aunt. I was a great aunt 11 yrs before I became a grand mother. That is a big baby.

Congratulations to all. Hope they haven`t bought too many first size clothes, they won`t be needed for more than a week!

Marmight Wed 20-May-15 16:50:54

Conratulations Katek on your elevation to great-auntdom! I will never be an Aunt or G. Aunt as I was an 'only' sad
My middle DD was 9.10 and it was the easiest delivery of all three. My 8 gc's were all under 7lbs confused

How lovely KateK!
Welcome to the world of great aunties- I think that sounds a very dignified position somehow.
The weight made me wince shock

annodomini Wed 20-May-15 17:10:53

Joyful news! A lovely big great niece, KateK. I have seven 'greats' two of whom are in NZ. I'm seeing the others soon when we celebrate my sister's 70th. One of my GSs was 10lb 10oz - but he's a skinny, wiry, almost 10 year old now! flowers for great auntie.

Congrats, katek!

Congratulations Katek. Lovely news.
I am a great aunt to nine, the eldest is 18 and the youngest 3 months old.

Congratulations to all smile

Thanks again to all! Have just received first pics of a lovely little girl. She is called Orla - very old and pretty name which apparently means 'golden princess'
