I’m happy to introduce to the world, Audrey Elizabeth McBride! (For you non-Swiss folks, “grüezi” is equivalent to “hi” or “hello” here in Basel.)
Audrey was born in Basel, Switzerland at the Universitätsspital (University Hospital) at 8:50pm on Tuesday, 24 November 2015. She weighed in at 6 pounds 15 ounces, and measured 19.7 inches in length.
Both Alicia and Audrey are doing great and getting a lot of needed rest. Audrey’s middle name is borrowed from Alicia’s great grandmother, Elizabeth Daingerfield. The selection of her first name followed precedent set with Marlowe, and wasn’t decided until about 20 hours after her birth. There were many great choices, but in the end we chose Audrey and an overwhelming majority of the hospital staff agreed. :-)
