Nadine Almas Noor Huda.

She literally popped right into our world.

In 25 minutes.

After labour pains of 16 hours, that is. But it was worth it.

It's nearly 24 hours since we brought her home and apart from the first night together trying to get used to parenthood, we are slowly trying to work out a system. M and I and the fur-children.

It's rediscovering, relearning and re-adjusting our lives again.

And in case you're wondering, "Nadine" is hope in Hebrew and Arabic. "Almas" is diamond in Arabic (and is also my mother-in-law's middle name) "Noor" means light in Arabic (and is also my dad's middle name).

Thanks guys! M remarked that she has all my features but all of his temperament - I think so too. I'd be too difficult to handle(!) LOL. And she looks much cuter after a good bath at home.. :-)
