I’m an Auntie! 25 October, 2005

Posted by monopod in Awwwww.

I am proud to announce that Caitlyn Marie was born at 8.24am Singapore time today and both mum and baby are well – hoorah! Little Caitlyn is apparently adorable, has lots of hair and looks like her dad, although my uncle claims all babies do at the start (paternity claims anyone?).

Bev: She’s so cute! She’s hairy, like Al.

Waiting for photos!

She’s 2.74kg! And SO small and adorable.

That is a good weight. Good for mother and child.

I look forward to seeing cute photos.

Yes, much better than an eye-watering 10-pounder (or similar) πŸ˜‰

I will post photos if mum allows me to! (And if I ever get any – bev! Get down there NOW with your camera!)

Congratulations, Natalie, and to mum and dad, of course! One request – no horror stories about labour. Don’t want to hear them!

PS: are they pronouncing is Kate-Lynn, or did that argument with you put them off that idea?

7. monopod - 28 October, 2005

Kate-lynn it is πŸ˜‰ Pronouncing it any other way in Singapore would be inviting the poor child to grow up dysfunctional…

What is the alternative pronounciation?

Is it an Irish name? Like Siobhan and Niamh?

I direct you to this entry πŸ˜‰

Aaah – does that mean that strangers will spell it Katelyn?

I have a lot of trouble with: Cassie/ KC/ Kasey…

Actually, I think most English-educated Singaporeans would spell Caitlyn correctly (or spell it as Caitlin, which is close enough). A problem would certainly have arisen should they have decided to use the original Irish pronunciation though!

And do people actually think your name ought to be spelt Cassie/KC/Kasey? They should all be smacked and taught proper language, like πŸ˜‰
