Grandmarnier and Grandpa Moss

On Wednesday Laurie met her paternal grandparents for the first time.? They seemed to like her, and I got Dad to do some shelving and Mum to make lunch, which sounds like a fair deal to me.? Favours for access.

Err, where are the instructions?

OK, Pip’s asleep now, and I’m holding the baby.? She’s as good as gold as long as someone’s holding her.? Two minutes after she’s put down, she starts to cry.? So my sleep tonight will be in 30 second pulses, unless I can find the instructions.

First Week Photo Album

There’s a new album of photos from the first week, where Laurie sleeps a lot, and meets her relatives for the first time.

First Day Photo Album

There’s a photo album full of pictures of Laurie’s first day here.

Great, it’s Great-Granny

Today Laurie met her Great-Granny for the first time. Laurie’s her second great-grandchild (after Oliver, who’s six), and her first great-granddaughter.


We’re all home now.? Pip’s having a bath, I’m learning to type with a baby.? Thanks for all your messages of support (girls) and commiseration (chaps).

She went back in on Tuesday morning for another heartbeat scan, and it was recorded as dropping a few more […]
