So where have the last 3 weeks gone? For me, they went in a blur of feeding, nappy changing, cuddling, sleep deprived snatched naps, bathing, winding and most of all loving. Little Nella has rocked our world. She is my third daughter and we feel extremely blessed to have her. I'm loving maternity leave, filling my days with cuddling the sleepy newborn, smelling her sweet milky breath and loving the fleeting sight of one of those sleepy windy 'smiles' - although we all know they're not real just yet.
So indulge me if you will, some photographs of out little bear cub.

So I'm just popping on during a late night feed (thank you iphone) to let you know my little one finally put in an appearance on Monday 3rd January at 6.41am. It was a quick 4 hour labour with amazing waterbirth. So meet Nella Eirys Orlebar, an absolute peach weighing in at a healthy 9lb 6oz (ouch!). We're all besotted as you can imagine. Happy new year everyone!
