Welcome to the World

As many of you know, we are now proud parents of our daughter, Matilda Lillian Batten. Born at 1:29am on July 31 by c section after around 25 hours of labor. She weighed 8lb15.8oz (so pretty much 9lb) and was 51cm long.

I won’t bore you with all the details of the labor but to say that Jodi did an AWESOME job! Man, once a guy shares that with his wife you get to see just how amazing they really are!!! (Thanks Dannii for being there and helping us get through it. You’re fantastic!)

Anyway, here’s some pics:

Thanks Phil & Shelisa. The Hug-a-Bub works a treat! She falls asleep within a minute of being put in it!

Fed & Content.

They’re in hospital until Saturday. They’re both doing really well. Matilda has started to feed without the help of the midwives but still having a little trouble latching on.

I’ll post more pics on the weekend.
