Oi! Where is OliviaMumsnet's birth announcement?

Or her live labour thread, for that matter? You sneaked the announcement in as a throw-away line at the end of the Parenting News email, and that's just not good enough. Shurely she deserves better than that? So, <ahem>

Many congratulations on your new baby boy OliviaMumsnet! Looking forward to hearing all about him! Does he have a name yet?

Sheesh - give the poor woman a moment - she only had the baby yesterday!

We're sure she'll post about it in due course - from what we've heard, it'll make an EXCELLENT birth story.

(no name yet, as far as we know)

Maybe she's calling him Dave grin.

QuintessentialShadows Thu 11-Nov-10 22:30:36

Yes, or Quint.

BecauseImWorthIt Thu 11-Nov-10 22:31:00

Well she was on Facebook talking about it .....

Just saying.


Saltire Thu 11-Nov-10 22:31:25

Dave the Quint is a good name actually

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 11-Nov-10 22:32:37

Not sure that one was top of her list, Saltire!

QuintessentialShadows Thu 11-Nov-10 22:33:13

Saltire, it would either have to be Dave De'Quint or just Dave Quint.

QuintessentialShadows Thu 11-Nov-10 22:33:35

Quint Dave is also good.

Saltire Thu 11-Nov-10 22:33:55

No, the "the" is essential, IMO anyway wink

QuintessentialShadows Thu 11-Nov-10 22:34:02

But, that sounds a little too much like Queen Dave.

Not good.

Poledra Thu 11-Nov-10 22:35:57

Well, y'know, maybe one of you lot could have made a birth announcement for her maybe? grin

And live labour threads are, y'know, as it happens. Clue's in the name.

Tch. Excuses, excuses

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 11-Nov-10 22:38:05

Don't think she had much time for a live labour thread, Poledra, tbh. Twas all rather speedy.

And no, the announcement is all hers to make - really. She did all the work, innit?...

QuintessentialShadows Thu 11-Nov-10 22:40:14

Helen, do suggest Quint Dave for her, will you? theres a dear.....

Saltire Thu 11-Nov-10 22:42:26

no helen, "Dave the Quint" is a far better option

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 11-Nov-10 22:42:31

Actually, perhaps we should have an MN Olivia's-baby-name sweepstake?

Poledra Thu 11-Nov-10 22:49:22

Oooh, good idea!

I'll have Belgarath.

QuintessentialShadows Thu 11-Nov-10 22:55:33

Or Poledron. wink

Congratulations to Olivia and the new baby!

Congratulations to them both smile

Tee2072 Fri 12-Nov-10 06:54:39

Congratulations Olivia!

KurriKurri Sat 13-Nov-10 21:22:13

Congratulations Olivia and welcome little one. (Kurri is a good name for a baby)

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 14-Nov-10 18:33:45

Hello, sorry that's he's not called Dave.
here's the announcement

Saltire Tue 16-Nov-10 10:03:05

OOh, good Borders surname that you've chosen, love that name, it's my family name grin
