And is starting to look around. This one and the first one were taken today, after her bath and just before I left to come home this afternoon. You have no idea how hard it was to leave. But I have that IVG thing again tomorrow to look forward to, and physio. Sigh. I needed to give her a long cuddle before I, very reluctantly, handed her back.
But here, my friends, is the moment I first got to hold her. She was yelling at the time. This is SO special. This is the moment Granny fell totally absolutely in love.
And here are the 3 grandparents just after she was born. Instant adoration. Isn't it amazing how one little bundle who weighs under 7lbs can command such love?
I got there half an hour after she was born, but before anyone was allowed in to see her and her very proud parents. Thank heavens for clear roads. My son got there for the last hour or so of labour, and Granny2B2 was there to support her daughter all the way through the labour. She was a star. And so was Ann. In fact, the only thing I can think of is the joy. The laughter, smiles and happiness.
And Isabelle you are the winner of the "Guess when" contest! You guessed the right day, and the closest time, 8.18pm, and the exact weight! So email me your address, and your mystery gift will be on its way!
You know, this has been such a mad, happy, totally out of the ordinary experience, my friends. I am loving every minute of it and can't wait to be back with them all. But I have some leg stuff to sort tomorrow. What a contrast. My mind is all over the place and I am struggling to think coherently. She is here.
And there is much rejoicing all over the world.
