Early wake-up call for mile­stone

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Lifestyle -

JADE Paolone had been plan­ning a trip to Las Ve­gas to celebrate her 30th birth­day.

In­stead, the new mum spent the day at home in Alexan­der Heights, look­ing af­ter her new bun­dle of joy, Bianca, who ar­rived only seven weeks ago.

“I woke up on my birth­day to bub want­ing a 3am feed… ‘Happy Birth­day to me’,” Mrs Paolone mused.

Many of the gifts Mrs Paolone re­ceived from fam­ily and friends for her mile­stone birth­day last Mon­day were as much for Bianca as they were for her, such as a baby swing.

Like Mrs Paolone, Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group is shar­ing the

d440661iii gifts of its 30th birth­day this year.
