Baby of the week: Amelie Isabella Di Sotto

PARENTS: Lauren Brown (32) a part-time waitress formerly of Kilsyth and Kevin Di Sotto (33) an IT consultant. The couple live in Forres. Amelie is their second child. Amelie is a sister for five year old Leia.

PREGNANCY: Apart from morning sickness at the earliest stage, all went well for Lauren.

BIRTH: Amelie was four days late. She chalked up a stint in the special care baby unit as a precaution after being born with the umbilical cord round her neck. Thankfully, there were no complications.

BABY: Amelie is putting on weight and is thriving despite this shaky start.

NAME: Both Lauren and Kevin like the French film Amelie and were inspired by the character played by actress Audrey Tatou - and that’s why they plumped for the name. Isabella was chosen in tribute to Kevin’s mum.

GRANDPARENTS: Lauren’s parents Elizabeth and James live in Balmalloch Road. Kevin’s mum and dad are Isabel and Ian who live in Alves.

THANKS: The couple want to thank all the midwives at the hospital for their care and also want to thank everyone who has been good enough to send cards and gifts. Lauren said: “We have been overwhelmed by everyone’s kindness.”
