Gemma Irene Brown

And so, at 38 weeks and 5 days, our beautiful daughter has made her arrival into the world.

Gemma was born at 16:08 on Monday 29th December (clever girl hanging in there til after Christmas!!) weighing 6lbs 8oz and absolutely perfect. We brought her home the same night and are a bit shell shocked but completely over the moon and so very, very happy.

There'll probably be a short blog hiatus while we are settling into life as a family of 3 but rest assured Gemma will get all the web space she deserves and more to accommodate the photos and updates we will put together. In the meantime here are some photos from her first few days in the world. She is just so wonderful and special.

Oh Kathryn, she's beautiful. Big congratulations to you and Ali.

And wishing you as much sleep as possible!

Congratulations, Kathryn - she looks gorgeous - and just crept into 2008!. Hope you are all well, and best wishes for 2009. Be back in touch soon. Stay well. Nigel, Jo & Dylan xxx

Congratulations to you and Ali. Not sure what you mean by "a short hiatus" in your blogging, won't you have plenty of time at night to blog? Only joking!

I bet Ali feels like the king of the world with his girls now!

It was delightful to meet her on Saturday Kathryn - as well as meeting some obviously chuffed grandparents!
