What a morning

What a morning

Son phoned me this morning at 6.30 his partner had just started labour, off me and granddad go (they live only 200 yards down the road) plan is hubby babysits while I take them to the hospital.

When I got there she was having a contraction, followed about a min later by another one!

As the hospital is about 20 mins away I said to son you had better phone an ambulance.

Ambulance car arrives with a lovely paramedic, has a quick look and says "we will see who gets here first ambulance or midwife and take it from there" - wrong baby decides he is coming first on the sofa in the living room :)

  • no mum has 2, dad has 2 and this is their 2nd together, so 6 in all, mad house, all squeezed in a rather small overcrowded house, but they all have loads of fun and most important they are all wanted and loved :)

  • Oh my goodness, so exciting, he is gorgeous, congratulations! Libby x

  • Beautiful Pink-Fizz. You've now got a wonderful story to embarrass him with in front of his girlfriends in the future.


  • How amazing Pink-Fizz and he weighed in at the same weight as Prince George! Let us know when baby has a name and many, many congrats to you and family. Love to all. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  • Oh what a beautiful baby,congratulations

  • Oh isn't he lovely, Pink-Fizz gorgeous little bundle for you all, he makes a beautiful picture.


  • Congratulations! Pink-Fizz. A newborn baby is a wonderful occasion. Has he a name yet? I think a big thing to find a name that the child will have for the rest of his life. Enjoy !!

  • Had a lovely family tea, grandma's world famous (as the grandkids call it) Spag Bol.

    I picked mummy up in the car, daddy proudly pushed baby up the road with the other kiddies, all fed and watered and dropped back home.

    Mum is feeling really good, she has had a nice nap this afternoon, something nearly impossible in a hospital, she said the home birth although unexpected was really nice, much nicer than hospital. mind I think having the paramedic there certainly helped :)

    Still undecided on a name although it has narrowed down to a couple now, already everyone call him "the baby with no name" I think that may stick :)

  • What a perfect baby. You must all be so proud.

    You will have to let us know what his name is when it is decided.


    Love and hugs



  • Oh what a beauty!! Congrats to the whole family xxxx

  • He's so beautiful. You must all be in shock, that's a morning you'll not forget in a hurry. Big congratulations to all.

  • This is a truly lovely story, baby soooooooo hamson x x x x x
