Here are the first few minutes of Sophie Helen Puspita Hynes’s life.
Sophie was born at 11:23 PM, Monday October 6th at Puri Bunda Hospital in Bali, Indonesia.
Weight 3560 grams and 52 cm long.
First image, My husband Sean is cutting the chord. Everyone had told him the chord would be surprisingly difficult to cut so, of course, he tried to hard, you could probably hear the SNIP! from a few miles away.
Then for the first time I meet my little girl outside the tummy!
She must have been surprised because at this point, all she did was wail, howl, weep & cry.
I am on the other hand am tired but delighted.
The last (and biggest) image, shows Me & Sophie Helen just after baby has been whisked away for a little personal hygiene & grooming. Sophie Helen’s not crying any more and I can’t stop beaming with pride. Sophie Helen Puspita Hynes is now about one hour old.
I was there in the background totally wiped out and can’t remember who’s taking the photo.
At some point, anyway, we slept.
Freshly bathed, dressed & accessorized, little baby Sophie Helen takes a few minutes out of her busy schedule to be photographed with fans in this case Auntie Galih and Grandma.
The next day, October 9th.
Picture took with the doctor.
Later that day (just after we meet the doctor) we’re allowed home. Which gives us all the excuse we need to start playing dress-up with our new toy:
So there you have it: the opening hours of Sophie Helen’s life after a gruelling 41 week wait.
