IT'S A GIRL!!!
Our dear friends and national guides for America World, Lineker and Amy, are proud to announce the arrival of their sweet baby girl. She is healthy, weighed around 7 pounds, and was delivered via c-section at 3:30 p.m. on September 27, 2007. According to Lineker, they only got to hold her for about 30 seconds and snap 2 pictures before she was whisked off to the ICU for 24 hours. Apparently, it is customary in China for all babies to spend the first 24 hours in the ICU even if there are no issues.
CONGRATULATIONS Amy & Lineker and new Baby Girl!!!!
Update: Amy and Baby came home from the hospital on October 1, a big day in China -- National Day. They have decided on her English name and Chinese nickname: Xiaoxiao (meaning "smile, laugh") is her Chinese nickname and her English name is Beth. She gets more beautiful by the minute -- please see the additional photos below.
