We had heard so many scary things, but its all going very well, although I am really tired as the little one feeds all night, the accountant, of Lyons, said. But its great to see everything falling into place. William Chin said it was the greatest feeling to be a first-time dad. Its great, everyone should have a baby, he said. I have nephews and nieces, which is cool, but having my own is just awesome. Alexander was born weighing 3.39kg and measuring 47cm. Brody Cooper Sisson SARAH and Brad Sisson may as well join Australias group of psychics. The pair, of Winnellie, predicted the sex of their first child and are rather proud they were right. Even though we did not know the sex, we thought we were having a boy and are ecstatic that he is finally with us, Sarah said. Little Brody Cooper Sisson made his grand entrance at 3.23pm on March 2010. He weighed 2.64kg and was 47cm long when born at Darwin Private Hospital. First-time parents Sarah and Brad are over the moon about the latest family addition. And Brad has already noticed some impressive features of his baby boy he has large hands and feet. You know what they say about big hands and big feet, he said. Eva Oriel Stephensen LITTLE bundle of joy Eva Oriel Stephensen made her proud parents Greta HollisStephensen and Ashley Stephensen more than happy when she arrived on March 21. Finally shes here, I felt like I was pregnant for ever, the 25-year-old first-time mum said. Shes just gorgeous. The couple, of Brinkin, said they had the name Eva which means golden life on their minds for their new baby daughter, but when the little girl was born, they had to confirm with her that Eva was the right name. Shes very alert and watches everyone and everything thats going on around her, but unfortunately she didnt sleep at all the first night, Greta said. Shes a hungry little monster, Ashley added, laughing. Little Eva was born at 7.31pm at Darwin Private Hospital, weighing 2.88kg and measuring 48.5cm. Harrison Turnbull LITTLE footy-star-to-be Harrison Turnbull just could not wait any longer to make his appearance in this world. The bundle of joy was born one week early on March 20 at Darwin Private Hospital, weighing 3.57kg and measuring 51cm. It was all a bit rushed with him being early, so we actually didnt even have a name for him when he was born, proud first-time mum Alison Fry said. The 21-year-old after-school carer said she was looking forward to taking on the fulltime baby carer job with little Harrison. Excited dad Stephen Turnbull, 20, said he could not wait to take his little sportsman home. Hes going to play footy and basketball, and he better likes cars hell have to go to the V8s with me, he said. After the initial shock Im even going alright with the nappy changes, he added, laughing. Joseph Fox Nicholls-Kenny YVETTE Nicholls and Sean Kenny know the right ingredients for healthy and big babies. Their latest family addition, Joseph Fox NichollsKenny, weighed 4.15kg and was 51cm long. And he is only one of three children who exceeded the 4kg mark. I had a caesarean because I knew he was going to be big, Yvette said. I just had three big and healthy babies. Joseph, or Joey as he has been nicknamed, was born at 8.21am on February 10 at Royal Darwin Hospital. He is little brother to Atelini, 5, and three-year-old Olive. His parents, of Rapid Creek, are over the moon about the family addition. And Yvette said there may be another one to come. Alisha Yasandi Perera GORGEOUS baby girl Alisha Yasandi Perera could not have made her parents any happier when she was born at the Royal Darwin Hospital on January 12. My hands were shaking, and when she started crying, we all cried, we didnt know what to do first, excited firsttime dad Duminda Perera, 34, said. It was really emotional, unforgettable shes a gift from heaven, proud mum Chami Perera, 28, added. And little Alisha is already one step ahead of her parents, with her being the first in the family to obtain an Australian passport. Shes the first real Aussie, Duminda said, thrilled. The couple had moved from Sri Lanka to Stuart Park, Darwin, six years ago. When the little bundle of joy was born, Alisha weighed 3.4kg and measured 48cm.
