New year bub

Tara and Josh Leighton, along with their daughter Lucy(four) and their sun Samuel (three) welcomed Ava Jane into the world on Friday January 4 at 7.55am at Calvary Hospital. She takes out the title of the first Yass Valley baby for 2013. Ava was predicted to be a 2012 baby but, five days late, the 3.66kg (eight pound, one ounce), 50cm long baby arrived.

Ava is a little sister for Lucy, four, and Samuel, three, who have been showering her in love and kisses since arriving home (inset).
