She's Here!!!!

I'm extremely pleased to report that baby Eva Frances was born yesterday morning at 11.12am following a dramatic and exciting morning trying desperately to get the hospital in a blizzard!

Mel and Darren had to abandon their car at the foot of a hill in the snow to call an ambulance so that baby could be delivered safely - it was that or the back of the Vauxhall Astra!

Trying hard to get the hospital in time, their 8 year old son and I travelled in every which direction to get through and were blocked by cars and snow at every turn. Luckily we made it through eventually when a passer-by gave us a new route. The ambulance raced past us on the way to the hospital. We made it!!!

Both mum and baby are doing amazingly well and should be at home later today.
I took almost 300 photos of the awesome event and we will post the best few once Mum has actually had a chance to see them!
