Our Little Princess...

Just quickly to say (in case anyone didn't know ;)) that the Mardon family welcomed a beautiful baby daughter into the world on Wednesday night, 27th June at 5.40pm (yes, in the car... more details to come I promise). She weighed 3370g (7lb, 7oz) and is 51cm long (rather long arms and legs though!
We have named her LANI FAITH. Lani means 'heaven' and we thought it more fitting than others we liked seeing as though she definitely had angels around her at birth!

Anyway, here are some pics from her first few days of life.

A couple of hours after arrival: (we didn't actually GET any pics in the car unfortunately!! I know, shame on me as a scrapper huh)One day old:
Me and my princess at one day old:
Finally, with her eyes open with her smitten Daddy, 2 days old:
Two days old:
With her big brother Jaidyn (the other brother doesn't stay still for 2 minutes!):

Having her first bath (the bit she didn't scream for), 2 days old:

All rugged up after her bath, 2 days old (love this one!!):

Little Lani is sooo beautiful!!! I'm still amazed that you gave birth IN THE CAR!!! You are so brave - it must have been surreal.
Jaidyn looks like such a proud big brother :)
I can't wait to hear the whole story - no pressure though - I can't believe how much you've posted already. I hope you're getting plenty of rest - well as much as a mum of a newborn can get :)
