She is here. She is finally, finally here! After being pregnant for what felt like forever, I now have my little girl to hold in my arms and cover in kisses.
She was born in the very early hours of December 13th weighing in at 7lb 4oz and measuring 49.5 cm.
My partner and I were fortunate enough to be able to have a home birth. It was so nice to be able to "sleep" in our bed after everything was over. Our midwives were amazing and so supportive. Even though it was the most intense, terrifying and painful experience of my life - I know I am blessed.
Neither my partner or I are very avid photographers, but I think this little girl may change all of that.
Georgia Grace; my little monkeybum.
