New Life to Celebrate

We are DELIGHTED to announce that our second Grandchild (a dear wee boy) has made it safely into the world.

Meet Owen Robert
7lbs, 5oz

He's a bonnie lad, isn't he?



Big sister, Penny is quite enamoured so far and is spontaneously showing kind and gentle affection for him (so far).



Our son, Mitchell is VERY proud of his wife and little boy and we couldn't be prouder of him!




We had Penny here for a few days while the baby was being born and getting settled.  It was a loud and busy time with lots of fun :) The house seems very quiet now that Penny's back home.  I will miss my early morning tea with her while we watch the sun rise and eat egg on toast together.   My, how toddlers are busy from the moment they wake until they fall asleep is quite something.  Grandma's a little tired :)

  1. Oh, what a lovely baby and such a proud, big sister. Congratulations to one and all! I'm smiling at your last comments - so true, we do forget just how lively they are, but how wonderful to have them. x

    1. Oh yes…. lively is a great word. Small children are just SO FULL of life! They are the very essence of energy and vitality :)

  2. He is just such a cute little bub. I can imagine that Grandma is quite tired now :-) Having a baby is so exhausting for Grandmas!

  3. congratulations.
    how special to have that time with Penny, even if it did tire you out.
    Did it make you wonder how you coped when your own were younger?
    cheers Kate

    1. It sure did! There is a reason why (in general) our childbearing years are in our 20's and 30's. I'm not sure I could keep up with a wee one on a full time basis, now!
