Brand New Bathtub Baby

Just had news that Grandson No 4 has finally arrived - he my have been overdue, but he made a very sudden entry to the world.   I won't go into details, but the title gives it away.

Another little Londoner.   Still no name, they want to get to know him a little.  All I know is that he weighs in at 8lb 10oz and has dark hair.



I still have some comments to answer, from my previous post.   I will be responding, just a little distracted tonight - texts and photographs are whizzing around from various members of the family and I don't want to miss out on any of them.

    1. He was born in the bathtub - which was fortunate, because had he been 20 minutes earlier, he would have been born in the family car, stuck in a London rush hour traffic jam... I understand that everything happened in a great rush!!

    1. Thanks, Scarlet. It could have been a similar story with this one! He was one of those babies who took a long time to decide to make a move, but then he got quite a wriggle on! Hope we manage to see him before too long.

    1. Thanks, Sue. Another little city boy who will learn to run around like a wild thing, getting muddy and climbing trees - when his legs are a bit longer!

      (Glad they arrived and you like them. The man who served me in the POffice asked what was in the parcel - you can imagine the look he gave me when I told him!)

  19. Thanks Jennie. Ha - his mum had just been to see the consultant who said the baby didn't look as though it was going to come any time soon and that she should be booked into the hospital for delivery...the baby decided otherwise, on the journey home from the hospital.
