Ten years ago today Gemma-Rose was born. She made an appearance just a few minutes past midnight on the 26th January, making her the first Australia Day baby to be born in our hospital. By the time the news crew arrived from the local newspaper to take photos of mothers and Australia Day babies, we were no longer there. I'd eaten breakfast and then Andy had arrived to take us both home.
Today we celebrated Gemma-Rose's birthday by visiting a native animal sanctuary for a picnic. Going to see Australian animals on Australia Day seemed a very appropriate thing to do.
Happy Birthday Gemma-Rose!
