And then…

SHE was here.

Babymac proof

Maggie Roslyn Macdonald arrived yesterday afternoon just before 4pm in the most beautiful way. She is a wee one…just 3.3kgs of pure perfection. It’s been a long few days but we got there in the end in the most amazing end to this pregnancy. The girls are beside themselves with their little sister and Rob and I are so happy we get the privilege of raising another girl in this world. Frank has no idea as yet.
