Just Born: It's love at first sight for baby daughter
Marta and Marcin Peron from Lisburn are celebrating the birth of their third child.
Lilly Peron weighed 6lbs 7oz and measured 49cms when she was born at the Lagan Valley Hospital's midwife-led unit on April 7 at 9.43pm.
"I was very happy to see her," Marta said.
"The first thing I noticed was she was tiny and she looked like my first son. I fell in love with her."
Marta was full of praise for the staff at Lagan Valley.
"I had Oliver and Mia in the same hospital," she said.
"The midwives were very good that was why I went back to have Lilly.
"They are all great.
"I can't say enough about them. They were so helpful."
Marta (33), a financial administrator, and Marcin (30), a storeperson, are originally from Poland but have been living in Northern Ireland for nine years. Their son Oliver (7) and Mia (2) are also enjoying the new addition to the family.
"They are helping me," Marta said.
"They are very happy.
"Oliver is happy our family has got bigger and it's a little sister so she can play with Mia now.
"Mia is not jealous.
"She is very helpful and always hugging her.
"She wants to be very close to her.
"She is very happy as well."
Marta and Marcin would like to thank friends and family for their love, support and well wishes since Lilly's arrival.
