I am a proud Grandma
Thank you for visiting my blog - I seems ''forever'' since I did a new post as I have been away from home for more than two weeks, and have another week to go. I am so glad that I traveled with my computer!!
The grand-baby I was awaiting when I made the thank you cards of the previous post arrived on the 1st of May without any complications, and only a few days past her due date. It was a real joy to be there during my DD's labour and the birth of Lydia Grace Edna!!
This photo was taken just and hour and a half after her birth!!
DD is now home and she, Lydia and SIL are all enjoying each other and the new responsibilities of being family. Meantime I have taken on the more mundane tasks of running the house, and changing dirty nappies - DD thinks that is a great take on parenting, and I am besotted enough to do it willingly :-).
The second photograph was taken this morning at the start of day 5.
We are all fascinated by the dark hair - both her parents were fair as wee ones, although there are one or two dark haired folk in the extended family.... quite unexpected really. Of course we realise it could all change!!
Thank you for bearing with this besotted Grandma and her bragging ... and for your visit - I do love seeing that you have visited.
