Introducing Mia

Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, may I proudly present to you Mia, my newest granddaughter.

Mia was born at 01.48 on Tuesday 23rd August by cesarean section as she was not coping well with mild contractions and they were worried about her heart beat being erratic.  DD2 had kept me updated, and I was updating our side of the family. She phoned at 00.50 to say they were taking her for a section and then again at 02.50 to say she had a daughter. She certainly has a powerful set of lungs as well as a head full of hair. She weighed in at 7lb 12 oz.

I was surprised how well she was opening her eyes and seemed to be listening to every word I said when I was up visiting.

love the hair.

DD1 took the older children up to meet their new niece on Tuesday evening.

with Fifi

They got home from hospital on Wednesday afternoon and we popped over again on Thursday afternoon. I got to give her a bottle, daughter is breast feeding  her but her milk was not in so she is supplementing her for a day or two. She then snuggled in and fell asleep.

surely I do not look this old???
