our beautiful girl

Our girl, Elizabeth Josephine was born on Sunday 7th October 2012 at 04:18 weighing 6lb 3oz.

She is a gorgeous, tiny package of loveliness, perfect, cute and the spitting image of her Daddy which makes everyone smile.

She had a tough old start though, the little pickle was rushed into hospital on only her second day and spent her first week in the special care baby unit.  Words are not sufficient to express what that felt like so I'm not even going to try.  I'm still not really able to speak about it, or even think about it for that matter, it is just too distressing and we want to concentrate on the here and now. We are taking our inspiration from the words of a wise old man, well a wise old turtle actually from Kung Fu Panda:

"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.  That is why it is called the present"

She is the best gift in the world, she is home, she is thriving, we are in love and we need more sleep! 

Welcome to the world my beautiful girl, I love you.

ps. thank you to my lovely blog friends who have been checking in on me, you know who you are and you made me smile.
