Annuncio vobis gaudium magnum!

Habemus puellam!

Born at 2.33am on 16 September and weighing in at 6lb 12oz (3.06 kilos).

Mother and baby are doing very well indeed.

The 16th September was also the 50th wedding anniversary of my parents and, spookily, my daughter is their ... 16th grandchild! Please God we can be as faithful to our vocation as my parents have been to theirs.

Many thanks to those who have sent messages of support and promises of prayers.

Very grateful to you all!


Hmmm, there will be some blogging-lite for a little time, me thinks. Not too long, I hope.

Yes, Mac, and I was going to tell you on F/B but you've disappeared!

That's because I got tired of the privacy stuff on FB being changed on a whim, as well as preferring to get proper emails rather than itty-bitty FB messages which I never seem to spot!!
;-p

Congratulations. Grab every moment of sleep you can but in the long term grab every moment you can get with your child(ren). It goes too quickly.
