Here she is!

At 40+6 and after a barnstorming labour of under 12 hours, we welcomed with some drama and flourish our beautiful daughter Alice Elizabeth, who looks like neither of us but is very much herself!

We are sleep-deprived and in a haze but learning more about each other every day.

Here are some photos from her first week.

Alice’s first cuddle with Daddy – one hour old

Alice sucking her thumb

Thumbsucker. We think those eyes will stay blue. 

Daddy’s shoulder

arms up

She sleeps like me with her arms above her head.

Alice and Mum

pout

This is my pout.

My favourite picture of my favourite little girl.
