...the safe arrival of baby Alba!:stork_baby:

Jodie and Gavin now have their own little Disney angel.

She was born 2 weeks late by emergency c-section at 9.53am on Friday 16 October weighing 8lb 10oz.

Mum and baby went home with proud Daddy today and they will be spending a cosy 2 weeks together before Gavin has to go back to work.

Many congratulations to you both and much love from all of us.

I do have photos and will upload them as soon as i get chance.

Thanks for the congratulations and nice comments.

We're both knackered but learning more constantly and it's getting easier every day (and night!)

Here's a couple more pics, there still from her first couple of days as I havn't had a chance to upload anymore yet but as soon as I do I shall share.

Jodie

Thanks guys,

We've had a busy day today, been to register her so she's now an 'official' little person with paperwork.

Gavin back at work tomorrow, was supposed to be two weeks after she was born but as I was in labour forever we made a dent in that. He has a fab boss though so when I was in labour at home she told him to bang out a few emails and said he could class it as a work day and he's also working from home Thursday and Friday.

I know i've got to go it alone when he's working but it seems to have come around so fast!

:)

I know.. it is so hard when they go back to work...

The first day Toņo went back to work, I cried all day, I just felt the task was too monumental for me to do it all on my own... but I survived, and Tatiana survived and pretty soon we got into this rhytm just her and me, and I had themost fantastic time just enjoying and getting to know my baby girl...

You will be fine :)

Jodie
27-10-2009, 05:26 PM
I am looking forward to getting into a routine of my own, when Gavin's at home it's all too easy to go with the flow a little too much.

:)

I can't get over how quickly her looks are changing! :yes: You dress her so nicely. LOVE the little buggie booties! :D

You'll be fine on your own with her. One hour at a time... you'll both get your routine and life will be even more glorious.

Thank you so much for sharing her with us! :hug2:

Jodie
28-10-2009, 07:56 PM
On my own; night and day one down, we survived.

I reckon i've tried to be superwoman though. She has a two to three hour nap around lunch time and rather than take advantage I cleaned the house, did some washing and generally ran around. Tomorrow I sleep!

:)

Tink

Uh oh! :nono: Baby rest. Mama REST!!! :yes: :hug2: Everything else will wait.

I adore how she makes herself comfy when she's sleeping, it's just far too cute!

Although the dress is cute, the onesie/sleeper looks much more comfortable! :lol:
