Some more photos

A couple of links to some pictures of our new daughter:

Bethan Amalie Haszard was born at 4:45 a.m. on Sunday the 15th of April. Bethan is a Welsh name we liked - click on the name for more info. It is pronounced like Bethany, but without the 'y' (not BethAnne or Betharn), but you can call her Beth. Amalie is a family name, from Rach's family. We have not misspelled "Amelie'.

She weighed 7 lbs 11 oz (or 3.49 kg for metricians) and was about 52cm long (although how you measure a slippery, screaming newborn with any level of accuracy I don't know).

To me, she looks like the usual newborn combination of Yoda and angry old bloke, but I love her anyway. Seriously, I can't see any real resemblance to either of her parents, or to her sister. Feel free to weigh in with your own opinions though.

She is also very loud - not one of those newborns that has a cute little ignorable whimper.

She was born at the RREBC here in Hanimalton. It was a water birth, and as everyone told us, it was quite a bit easier than a first baby (not that I did a hell of a lot).

Big Sister Ella is being a Big Help with everything, and is quite often actually helpful.

The 'happy family' photo (wit all four of you) is the best.

My first thought was that she reminds me of Kendyll, but now I'm not so sure.
