A bit of light relief to divert our attention for a few moments.

Meet Charlie, my first baby grandchild born last week weighing in at a chunky 9lb 3.5oz. 😍

I really am, it's a weird old crazy time to come into the world and I'm of course having very limited contact but because they're isolating too, at least I'm getting a little visit. We're trying to be very good and sensible so I'm not getting as many cuddles as I normally would but I'm still very lucky and will make up for it in 12 weeks and then some :). xx

Congratulations 🎉🎊🎈!!!

Thanks

Congratulations Josie! What a beautiful darling he is. Such a big boy....hope your daughter is doing well and I can tell he's prepared to take on this crazy world with vengeance. Enjoy grandma.

Hi Josie,

I'm pleased to hear that your daughter is safe and is recovering well from the birth. It must be such a relief to you and your family to have her back home.

Sophie ❤

Welcome Charlie - thanks for brightening up my day. When I was born I weighed in at 10lb 4oz !

Jo xx

Oo you were a whopper lol. Im glad he made you smile that was my aim. X

I was a big baby too, Jo. My parents said I weighed 10lb 10oz when I was born.

Sophie ❤

Wow - I was born on a Sunday afternoon at home - Sunday’s child is supposed to be happy & wise .... I do my best 🤣

I was born on a Tuesday. According to my dad the doctors and nurses predicted I would grow up to be a singer, as I cried so much and woke up all the other babies on the ward! My poor mum had a hard time giving birth to me, and almost had a caesarean section, but I decided to put in an appearance before she was taken in to theatre!

Congratulations! My son is Charlie too so I am partial to that name. Is he officially Charles? Or just Charlie.

Either way he looks like an alert and happy fellow. 💕💕

Congratulations. Watching my seven-month-old grandson a few days a week gives me life and is the best job I’ve never been paid for. Enjoy him. This seven months has sped by. My daughter also ended up with an emergency c-section. It’s hard to watch them go through that.

How totally precious and beautiful he is!! You are a blessed lady! I am expecting my first grandchild in a bit over month but suspect the baby will come before due date. I am 70 now and dealing with all of this in anticipation of the glorious day of seeing my grandchild sometimes gets overwhelming to me. I am so happy for you and this post made me smile. It has been sometime since I have been on this site and now I know why it was so important to me. Glad to be back.

OMG. How nice to get some good news. Boy he is a big boy. Your daughter is a warrior! He is absolutely beautiful. Look at those eyes. I hope your daughter is recovering well from the c-section although it may take a few days.

Congrats Grandma on the birth of your first grandchild. Look at him...he already knows how to pose for the camera.

What a wonderful thing to happen now during this temporary turn of events in the world.

The circle of life continues. He is beautiful and I wish him the best going forward. Thanks for sharing this photo and letting us share in the happiness that your whole family must be experiencing. Was feeling kind of down, but seeing this just erased that.

Congrats and God Bless.

Wow 9 lbs 3 oz. Mom will be able to hold that over his head, if he ever, in the future tries to give her a hard time. Such a cutie pie. Congratulations on your grand baby, and your families newest precious gift from GOD. XoXoXo

Thanks x

OMG💕💕So cute. Enjoy it is great being a 👵

Thanks. I wish I could cuddle him but facetime it is during this crazy time. I sing to him and talk - I'm sure he recognizes my voice (lol, at 3 weeks probably not but I can pretend) x

Grandchildren are great! My granddaughter lives in CA and is expecting twin girls next month. My first Great Grandchildren.

JI guess we will see I them on FaceTime as we live in Jersey and it is a rough time right now.

But bless the little ones that can take our mind off it for a few minutes. Not a care in the world. They make everyone smile just seeing them.

Enjoy him as much as you can.
