welcome to the world, baby girl...

At 2:22am on Father's Day, Sunday 1 September 2013, Evelyn May entered the world, after a speedy 5-hour labour. I still cannot quite believe I had nearly 8lb of baby hiding away in there!

Although I went into labour on my official due date, wee girl saw fit to chose the first day of Spring as her birthday - cannot say I blame her, what a gorgeous day to be born! Plus Father's Day, such a wonderful thrill for V.
We are both utterly besotted with her. We celebrate our 5-year wedding anniversary today, all the more fitting that our baby girl is 5 days old today.

She and I are both doing well - she is having some treatment for jaundice, but we expect to be home Sunday as originally thought. More to come then!

xoxo
