My little girl is here!!!

Sorry for the delay in this announcement, but it has been quite hectic here the last week!

Cheriese Adrienne was born on 8th April (her EDD!!) at 2:30am weighing 3.375kg (7lb 7oz) 49cm long with a head circumference of 32cms. Our homebirth was just beautiful, totally amazing and perfect in every way, with Jordan and Jai in awe at seeing their little sister come into this world.

I will get around to writing my birth story properly later on, for now I'll do as Helen suggested and just fill this post with her gorgeous photos!

Now I just need to find some time to do some lovely girly sewing for my new little miss!

I just love the look on your faces! Well done Mama, you've done such a great job. What beautiful children you have. You really should have put a warning at the start: "Will induce you into a hormonal Baby wanting mode"! *cluck cluck* Can't wait to hear the whole story when you have time x

Congratulations Natalie on the birth of your gorgeous little girl. She looks so similar to Jai I think.
It's so true what they say, " A picture is worth a thousand words."
Your after birth photos express such a powerful, unadulterated joy and the raw emotion in them made me cry. I am so happy you got to experience such an amazing homebirth with your husband and your beautiful boys right there with you.
