Home


This afternoon we arrived home with our gorgeous little girl. She was born at 10.17 on Tuesday morning is healthy and I'm doing well. At 4.625kg (10 pound 3) she's a big and very strong girl. Her daddy and I are totally smitten.

For now, we're enjoying lots of quiet cuddles and I'll be back to the world soon.

I was thinking it was a while since you had posted and was wondering how you were. Now I understand - if I'd delivered a 10lb baby I'd need a break too! She's gorgeous - enjoy her.

Great job Melanie and little baby girl!! She is just divine! My babies are in the mid 6 pound range, I realised I just missed out on beautiful checks to pinch. Enjoy your first few weeks, they are so much fun (and a little crazy too as you guys all adjust to each other)

Congratulations! These early days are precious (and painful). If the hospital gave you anti-inflammatories, do NOT stop taking them until you can sit on a regular chair without flinching. ;-)
