baby days

Welcome to Althea, born on Saturday morning to my wonderful friends Julie and Al. We dashed up to pick them up from the hospital, and do a little bit of looking after and quite a bit of cuddling the baby (though there was quite a long queue for the cuddles). The reams of advice they have to give these days makes having a new baby such a complicated business. The midwife was most insistent that she should not wear hats in the house, so she is going to have to take a daily trip up and down the street to ensure that the whole collection of home made hats gets used.
We are all looking forward to being part of her life.


  1. Makes one wonder how we managed before all the advice - but we muddled through somehow. Love and cuddles have always been a part of the process though so I suspect they made up for a lot of ignorance!

  2. Hi there! Thank you so much for commenting on my blog. Enjoy that new baby in your life. I really like her name! No hats in the house...that's a new one!

  3. So precious. Congratulations.
