Annabelle's Arrival

I did say several weeks ago that when I had the chance I would post some pictures of the day Annabelle arrived - finally here they are!

Me & Maddy - just before I went into hospital

the fetal monitor

Tired already - and there's still a long way to go!

Some people laboured easier than others!

A reassuring sight - gown and nappy laid out ready

Here she is - with a nice 'bun' on her head
courtesy of the vacuum extraction!

Our first family photo

A very proud Daddy!

Our birthing 'coach' - Aunty Danielle & Annabelle

Maddy meeting her cousin for the first time!

Maddy, Annabelle & Oliver - when I look at this picture I can see
just how much the jaundice affected Annabelle's colouring!

Day 8, our last day in hospital

Packed up & ready to go home!

Home at last!
