Just a couple of days after cooking for the G20 big wigs, chef Jamie Oliver and his wife Jools welcomed their third baby, Petal Blossom Rainbow, into the world last week. Yep, another little girl with a crazy-cute name — Jamie’s other girls are named Poppy Honey and Daisy Boo — joins the Oliver brood. Hooray!
According to People.com, Petal was born on April 3rd at 2:46AM and weighed in at 6 pounds, 10 ounces. Ha! That’s nothing, Greta beat that weight by almost a whole pound! Seriously though, Christine and I were thrilled to hear the good news and wish nothing but the best for Jamie and his family.
As you can see from the pic above, Greta was pretty stoked too, so, I’m guessing we’re gonna have to arrange a Greta-Petal play date sometime real soon…
With the baby due in just three short days — of course, that’s if she doesn’t take after her father and show up late to everything — Christine and I have been going kinda crazy the past couple of days. Sure, the car seat is securely in place, all her little bitty clothes are washed, sorted by size, and ready to be worn, and our hospital bag has been packed and sitting by the door for days.
But, like all parents, we recently started to wonder if we were really ready for her to get here. I mean, despite all our preparations, would we really know what to do with her when she arrives?
So, you can imagine our relief when our friend Wan e-mailed us the handy baby rules instructions shown here. Created by the clever folks at Wry Baby (who’s stuff Christine has been selling in her store for years) the manual has been a real life saver this week. I mean, who knew you couldn’t give a baby coffee and a big old Turkey leg? We sure didn’t!
So, as we leave you now to study up on more top-secret baby rules, enjoy the pics. And thanks again to Wan for the advice…you are a real life saver, chica!
