Ready to be a big sister after baby's arrival

TEAH De Piazza was jumping for joy at the arrival of her baby brother Lyndon John Brown born at Gladstone Hospital on August 13.

Lyndon weighed just 3039 grams and was born at 1.30pm. He is named after his grandfather.

Teah said she couldn't wait to get her little brother home.

"When we get home I'll be helping Mum out with everything," she said.

"I have always wanted to be an older sister. Now that I am, I am really excited."

Mum Tenylle De Piazza said she fell pregnant almost immediately after deciding to try for a second child.

"It was like the perfect birth, nothing out of the ordinary. I was in induced around nine in the morning so it was all pretty quick.

"It was strange - I didn't have any weird cravings this time, I'm just glad everything turned out okay."

Dad Joshua Brown said he was hoping to get Lyndon into rugby union as soon as he can throw a ball.

"There are a lot of things I'm excited for - but mostly just watching him grow up and his first day at school," he said.

Ms Piazza will become a stay-at-home mum to ensure she doesn't miss out on any precious moments.

"We might consider having another child down the track," she said.

"But right now two is definitely enough and we are all very happy."
