I’m not a fan of newborn pics

but here’s a relatively tasteful one for those of you who sort of are:
Baby Adlard III

Our little girl was born at 9pm last night, 90 minutes after we arrived at the hospital. The birth was traumatic for her and she took a while to adjust, with a very poor apgar at 1 minute, getting better as time progressed. She spent the night in the high care unit on a drip and monitors and by this morning everything was as it should be.

She’s feeding well now and we expect to be all-at-home-together tomorrow.

We’ll settle on a name when we’ve spent a bit more time with her.

MGW is an absolute rockstar.
