The Arrival....

The day finally arrived and we welcomed Lirys Erin into the world.
We were all very tired and emotional after a long labour and a sudden emergency c section.
But just look at Bethan's face!!
Matt's first cuddle.
And mine!

Then there was some much needed skin to skin contact .
Lirys decided it was all too much and went to sleep in her Daddy's arms.
Isn't she gorgeous???

Uncle Gareth came to visit and you can see he was overjoyed!!
It didn't take too long before he was having lessons on nappy changing....
Lirys was 7lb 3ozs and was born on the 29th June ..

Gorgeous - and great photos. But you left it three months to tell us. . . or have I missed something?
Congratulations anyway.
