It’s a Girl!

Finally introducing little Charlotte Mae Franklin.

Arrived safely on the 23 June 2011 at 2.30pm weighing 2.5kg (5.5lb).

The most adorable creature I have ever seen.

Thank you to everyone for all the encouraging comments, lovely well-wishes and thoughtful enquiries leading up to the long-awaited arrival!
