A special day

When the phone rang at half past five this morning, I didn’t need to hear the words… my younger son’s voice said it all… though the awed wonder of the words ‘she’s just perfect’ had me in tears.

This morning Hollie Olivia, was born.

Laura looks impossibly beautiful… Alex has that dazed look of one who has witnessed a miracle, which indeed he has.

And he’s right. My granddaughter is just perfect.

Welcome to the world, little one.

      The children didn’t want her all over Facebook… but there are photos 😀
      Ani has been so funny… she adores babies and is sooo gentle with them… and has been glued with her nose to me after I’ve been holding Hollie.
