Rachel Emily Scott was born on at 6:07am on Friday, 3rd March 2000 and weighed in at 8lb 11.5oz. Her parents are Martin and Ruth Scott, and Ruth being my sister, that makes Rachel my niece, and me an uncle for the second time (the first time being the birth of Rachel's brother Jamie).

I've been very lax about putting up any more pics but here's Rachel the week after her third birthday (with Jamie getting into the picture in the background).


Since I last saw her in October all her shyness has gone and she's as bouncy as a bouncy thing.
