On Ava’s early arrival:
Bec: No [I didn’t expect her to arrive early] And Lleyton wasn’t actually here.He was in Melbourne.
Lleyton: But I got there!
On the worry because she was premature:
B: She seemed well and she was able to feed straught away. She is classed as a premature baby, so they definately made a really big fuss about it in the hospital. Before every feed, they took her blood sugar levels, and also wrapped her up so much that I thought she was too hot. But they said premmie babies use too much energy if they get cold.
L: As soon as she came out, everything seemed fine to me — just like with the other two. The difference is she sleeps a lot more because [premmie babies] need to catch up on the growing they do in the womb.
B: It’s made adjusting to three a lot easier — with all the sleep we’re getting!
Ava joins big sister Mia Rebecca, 5 this month, and big brother Cruz Lleyton, 23 months.
