She's arrived!

My beautiful baby granddaughter arrived yesterday August 9th, on her due date - bless her! 
She is gorgeous and we are all totally smitten.  In fact, mum, dad, nana uncle spent many a moment just staring at her.

Talking to my daughter about her birth experience obviously brought back many memories. Where did those 28 years go?

                                              Daughter day one

                                             Granddaughter day one

              Another mother and daughter  - starting their journey together

                                                Meet Annika Rose, 8lbs 1oz 
                                                   Blond hair and blue eyes

(Well you can certainly see where the 28 years have gone when you look at the two photos of yours truly LOL)
