Introducing Marie Elizabeth Biggs

Marie Elizabeth Biggs was born on the 6th of June 2001 at 8:50pm. At birth she weighed 4000 grams, and was 53 cm long. Is it any wonder girls are so hung up on their weight when that's the first thing everyone wants to know. What else is there to say? She's an absolute angel! Everyone says she looks just like her mum, except the ones who say she looks like me. I think she'll probably end up looking like herself.

Marie was born in Brisbane, Australia at the Wesley Hospital, to proud parents Christopher & Christine Biggs. She was eight days early, which caused momentary consternation to a father who had been counting down the weeks (eg. "last sunday was the 2nd last sleep-in of my life"). A lovely little girl like Marie is worth missing my "last sleep in" for, and indeed lots lots more. Labour lasted sixteen hours, of which the traditional swearing-at-the-husband part lasted less than two hours. Mother & father would like to say a big "thank-you" to modern anaesthetics.

Mum and baby came home five days later, and are both healthy and happy (of course, a little short on sleep...).

Father will be amusing himself over coming weeks pointing all manner of photographic equipment at his gorgeous daughter, so watch this space for more images to come... These first images are scanned by Rabbit Photo, Indooroopilly (with free dust and hair for every image, this offer can't last, ring now!). The Laundry/Darkroom is doing extra duty in the former role just now, but hubby hopes to make some quality prints (and scans thereof) sometime after his feet touch the ground.
