Everybody, Meet Kate!

In the twilight hours of 21 January 2011, M and I welcomed a new addition to our family. She is the most beautiful thing to ever happen to us me (next to M, of course), and we I couldn’t ask for more. We I We argh I have named her Kate, just because it felt right to name a precious one and she looks like a Kate to me. I could snuggle her in my arms everyday except that she weighs right about 12kg.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you my bundle of joy, Kate, all cranberry, fuschia, and yummyish-ly plumish-ly darkish-ly pink. Even my DSLR can’t capture her real beauty. To see her (true colours) for yourself, please form a queue outside my place, thank you very much. Mind you, I charge admission, and yes, you have to take numbers. But don’t go on to say that this money-grubbing Mummy didn’t warn you……you can admire Kate’s clones for free at any good departmental store near you.

But I still think my Kate is prettier.

P.S: No, I didn’t actually give birth to a little fuschia baby.

P.P.S: A huge thank you to all for your comments and opinions on My KitchenAid Dilemma! Kate wouldn’t be here without you!

      pigpigscorner: I had my mind kinda set on that colour (or Pink Charity) before I went shopping for it and spent about half hour standing in front of all the KAs in Selfridges. In the end, still went for the one I love!

    Good choice! Looks even prettier in your photo then it did in the company website.

    And I’m impressed you resisted giving it a silly name – mine’s called Bertie :)

    I’m after a glass mixing bowl for it now, but they’re sooo expensive…

      meemalee: Yes it looks a little brighter on the website, it’s actually a little bit more plum-ish in the flesh. Bertie’s cute!!! I am uncreative and so went for Kate. Indeed! I’m eyeing the ice-cream attachment and another mixing bowl, but they are so expensive!!
