DID you welcome a bouncing bundle of joy to the world during 2019?

Throughout the past year we have been asking readers to send in pictures of their newborns to celebrate all the new arrivals - and create a special souvenir keepsake in The Northern Echo for family and friends.

We were absolutely thrilled to be inundated with pictures from proud mums, dads and grandparents and hope you all enjoy seeing your young ones here in this gallery.

If you missed the Born in 2019 souvenir supplement in The Northern Echo, we have a limited number of copies still available to order.

You can order a copy by calling 0800 1381420.
