It's a Girl!!

Susie and I are proud to announce the birth our first Grandchild. Skye Eleanora was born at 1945 14th February 2005, weighing 8lb 40ozs, 20"long. Mother and baby are doing well after Skye shocked all, even medical staff - she was supposed to be a boy (by all scans & diagnostics, except emnio).

Although Skye was born with a few problems, specialists are confident of a full and complete recovery.

We have been driving 100 miles each way, each day with long visits which has left me wrecked so my apologies for not making the announcement earlier (I'm not a snob). Our daughter really needs her Mum at this time.

Just quietly - YIPPEE

We''l be off again shortly.

"It's not as much fun getting them out as it is putting them in" is a quote our daughter won't forget in a hurry.

I should have said "Great Grandmother, Grandmothers, Mother and Daughter ALL doing fine". Luckily we only had Susie there in person, but the phones wouldn't stop ringing from the others until the final event.

Cracked me up too.

Susie said that in the final throws of labour just before I was booted out. Made the Erin laugh too, which was good.

Brooksy, Our grandson calls my husband Papa. I love that name. He is my only grandchild and he is 16 years old. It feels like just yesterday I was changing his diapers. Love every moment Brooksy, Time will fly.
