Cowart's Common Room

Fast worker obviously this Butterbean, who at the time of writing the last and now inoperative message, was already about half an hour old. Rolling Eyes

We have no name as yet or even a weight. No doubt that will all come in due course or she (did I say it was a girl?) may just stay Butterbean.

So Theo (who we are looking after and who has just poured milk all over an armchair) has a sister. Not sure how we shall manage with two of them. Bah humbug!

Photographs later. Very HappyVery HappyVery Happy

Faith's Avatar Oh congratulations Fennie, how lovely - a pigeon pair! Like I've got! Milk all over the upholstery will smell vile - hopefully it was an accident and little Theo didnt pour it in a jealous fitLaughing Wonderful news - happy daysVery Happy

Fennie's Avatar Age gap, Ivy, is three years and three months. Thanks for the congratulations. Faith, is that the word for a boy and a girl - a pigeon pair?

Ivy's Avatar Oh he will be so "helpful " then..... but let him, in my opinion its the best way to prevent jealousy. Hope you could save the chair or is it IKEA again?

Fennie's Avatar What's so wrong with IKEA? Cheap and cheerful! Covers are washable. Theo is very helpful to his toys, so why not to his sister?

Blackbird's Avatar Congratulations to your and your whole family, Fennie. What a blessing for your daughter to have a quick labor this time.

I am positive that Theo will adore his little sister and that together, in years to come, they will delight in trips to Ikea. I know that I do- you never know what you will find and their children's area makes me wish for a little one to shop for myself.

Purple vibes and hugs to all for an easy transition home.

Ivy's Avatar Fennie, NOTHING is wrong with Ikea! I am blessed to have not only one shop in town but 2 and the first inner city shop is being under construction. I love to mix and match old and Ikea, only with looking after Theo, having a new born "Butter bean", you might have other plans than going to IKEA.

Faith's Avatar I've never been to Ikea, maybe I should. My two year old grandson is great with his baby sister, so I am sure it will work out ok. Yes, a pigeon pair is a boy and a girl. They used to think that the two eggs that a pigeon laid were always a male (first egg) and a female, but I don't thnk it's actually true.

Posted by: Faith on 3rd May 2012 at 07:38AM

Fennie's Avatar Wow - do pigeons only lay two eggs? I have learned something today. And two Ikeas, Ivy - or should that be Ikeae? We have the biggest store in the UK (I think) in Cardiff. I am a great fan: good design, good value for money and practical. Thanks for all your good wishes.Very Happy

Westerwitch's Avatar Congratulation on Butterbean Very Happy

PS We love Ikea - but our nearest stores are an hour and a half away :(

Withy Brook's Avatar Many congratulations to your daughter and husband and every good wish to Butterbean. Yes, a pigeon pair - I achieved one too but none of the children did - all either girls or boys.
The bit of Ikea I like best is the food corner, where you can get Scandinavian things. We have a big place in Gateshead's Metro Center but I have not been for ages.

Fairy Nuff's Avatar Helloooo ButterbeanVery Happy
(not a bad nickname if it sticks that one, a friend of ours Grandson is still referred to as Bad Boy even though he's now 25!)

Never been to Ikea... our nearest one is Three and a Half hours awayRolling Eyes

Toady's Avatar Welcome Butterbean.
BTW you can buy Ikea online. Our nearest is Bristol so I had a jolly good browse online and had it delivered. There's a place to put your postcode in and they'll quote you the delivery charge. I think we paid about 40 delivery charge but that is less than it would have cost us in petrol and no aggro.
