It sounds really strange, but some of the very best days of my entire life have been spent in a hospital.

I have experienced the highest of highs in those first hours after each of our children have been born. I always feel so energized and overjoyed and I just adore introducing our newest family member to our beloved friends and family.

Here are some photos from the first 48 hours of Frances Kate’s life:
