Kerry and Glenn Patterson, from Belfast, say the arrival of their daughter, Erin, has changed their lives forever and they can’t take their eyes off her.

Kerry, a business development manager and Glenn, an investment manager, welcomed Erin Mabel Patterson into the world at 9.44am on October 1.

She weighed 7lbs 13oz on her arrival at the Ulster Hospital in Dundonald.

The beautiful baby girl was given the first name Erin, because Kerry “just loved it” and the middle name Mabel after Glenn’s grandmother.

The couple was overwhelmed with emotion on first seeing Erin.

Glenn said: “We were completely overjoyed and full of love for her.

“Seeing her for the first time was the most amazing feeling — it still is.”

And Kerry said the staff at the Ulster were “incredible”.

“From the parent craft classes right through to the day we left hospital, the team were very supportive and caring throughout,” she said.

Glenn and Kerry are looking forward to watching their daughter thrive as the days, weeks and months pass.

“We are looking forward to watching her grow and developing her little personality,” Kerry added. “She already has an interesting squeal!”

The Pattersons would like to thank Erin’s grandparents, Mildred, John and Lorna and all of their family and friends for their kind wishes and support.

“We would also like to thank Dr Ralph Roberts and all the team at the Ulster Hospital.”
