My Gorgeous Daughter, Darcie Alice Hope

Just a quick post... I have been rather busy lately! I'd just like to introduce the newest member of our family, our first baby! Darcie Alice Hope arrived on the 7th of July 2014, weighing 2.780kg and measuring 47cm. Mammy and baby are doing just fine, although the labour was not a piece of cake (OMG thought I was dying), but we were rewarded with a beautiful, baby girl! She's just perfect, and we can't believe how lucky we are! Here's a few pictures...
