The Hegarty clan has a new member: Eve Ferrier, born yesterday morning in Melbourne, weighing in at a svelte 8 pounds 4 (we don't do things by halves in my family).
Welcome Eve. I'll be over there to read Olivia to you in a couple of weeks.
I'm sorry your parents have not bowed to the intense lobbying to name you after me, but maybe next time. I'll start the campaign as soon as they wake up.
If your great-grandfather were still here, he'd be singing, "Thank heaven for little girls" all over the hospital, as he did when I was born, and when your mother was born. If you hear a faint song on the breeze, that'll be him.
