In case you hadn’t heard… We had the baby!!!! She arrived Sunday morning after what I can only say was the perfect and most amazing birth. So with out further ado I would like to introduce for the first time to all of you our beautiful little girl…
Isn’t she the most beautiful little baby ever? I know I am bias but man she is gorgeous!! My heart melts into puddles every time I look at her. She has the softest chubbiest cheeks ever. I can’t stop kissing them. We will be sharing lots more photos and our whole birth story soon. For now we are going to be taking a little time off. Don’t worry though have I got a treat for you!! I have some fabulous guest bloggers lined up for the next week. Baby pictures I am sure will be popin’ up in between because I can’t help myself, but I am so super excited about the guest bloggers. I gave all my blogging friends a special mission to complete for their posts. I can’t wait to explain all the details tomorrow!
Here are just a few photos from the hospital…

a trillion congratulations to you 🙂 as everyone has already said, rowan is a really awesome name!
also, i just adore reading these types of posts on blogs, and cant wait to read more baby posts from you, cos it just gives me so much warmth – not just about your family unit, which i am thrilled for (is that weird?) but because it makes me think that when i was born, thats probably how my parents felt too, and their parents to them etc etc, just people didn’t have blogs back then 🙂
Congratulations you guys!! I was so excited to see on FB that you were going to announce her today that I have been checking your blog obsessively since 9am! She is truly beautiful and a small little miracle that God is going to abundantly bless your family with!! All the very best!
