I went and visited my new little niece last night and she really is the most beautiful thing - even if I am biased! So tiny and looks just like her mum!!
Her name is Francesca Shwe. Shwe (pronounced `Shway') is an old Burmese name that means `gold' and is Tanya's grandmother and great-grandmother's name. Tanya is of Burmese origin and really wanted that in the name somewhere. Francesca is just a name they really liked right from the start - not related to anyone they know. Except that Tan's father is called Frank so he's pretty thrilled!
My brother is completely besotted with his new daughter. Watching him change his first nappy was like something out of an old comedy movie but it was very sweet. They are just smitten - and I don't blame them she is just an adorable little creature.
I will post some pics as soon as I can find my camera!!
