Her first shopping trip was obviously more tiring than we could have expected..
After 3 1/2 days we are allowed home. We spent the last day and a half in a private room (since being allowed to leave the high dependency ward) as I was desperate for sleep and privacy.
All Baby’s clothes are too big (all 0-3 months and we thought that would be ok as knew she would be a big baby), but we are off to start our adventure together. She looks like she has drunk the shrinking potion from Alice in Wonderland.

Baby didn’t make a smooth, seamless entry to the world, she arrived on Saturday 30th March 2013 at 01.38 weighing 9lb 2oz, after 13 hours and 38 minutes. Baby had to be helped out by forceps, as she started to get distressed, but all is well, with Baby (I’m another story). Oh and how brave am I posting the ‘just born’ picture (thank god for filters).
