She’s here! Introducing our little Hannah…

We have been truly blessed…
On the 24th of October,
our little girl 
was born.
Hannah Elise
…a very special addition to our family and little sister to Asher and Lydia. 
She's a little dot of a babe.

at just 2.850 kg / 6lb 5oz.
Our first 10 days together have been spent taking in and celebrating the little things…
trying to commit these precious moments to memory in all their detail and wonder.
As you can imagine, I have so many photos that I would like to share… too many in fact. So, I have simply chosen a few of my favourites.
Some final bump photos on the 23rd, the last day of my pregnancy.

Early morning, Wednesday the 24th of October, we finally meet Hannah face to face…

Sweet sleep…

Hannah's first bath. Such tiny toes…

We quickly discovered that the 0000 sized clothes we had organised were going to be too big for our little girl, so DD (doting Dad) headed to the shops to find a premmy outfit for her to wear home.

Didn't he choose well? So sweet! Tiny booties, hat, suit and jacket… a perfect fit, but we still had to roll up the legs! : )

On Monday, we headed home to begin our life together.

For now, that means little sleep, endless loads of washing and hours of lovely cuddles while getting to know each other.

A blessing indeed.
Just one more, that I simply must share. One of my favourite photos was taken by our 17 year old daughter.… a special moment between sisters.

Until next time,
