........and more news from the Pond

Sorry for that giant snowy picture!! Somehow I didn't get it to go down to the size I wanted!

But that's not what I want to tell you, really. On Thursday our wee Declan became a Big Brother when Connor arrived two and a half weeks early. His mummy went to the hospital to be told that she wasn't having a baby yet. She was sent home, but wise young woman that she is, didn't get out of the car at the house - said 'take me right back to the hospital', where an hour later she delivered a gorgeous little boy.

Mother and baby are well and anxious to come home, but we are snowed in and this may take some figuring out!!

Re:
Frances's Avatar Wow, this is huge news.

Congratulations to all, but very special congratulations to the newly official big brother Declan!

The snowstorm that you sent across our continent did not result in much dramatic effect in New York. Maybe we will get another sprinkling of flake tomorrow. xo

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar Eeeek somehow I missed your post CONGRATULATIONS - thank goodness Mum kept her head and yes it is very scary that the professionals got it so badly wrong.

How is the snow now? More importantly how is Mum and baby - wonder what Declan will think of the new addition.
