We were doing the Aged Aunt's shopping this morning when we got a call to say that Davina has had the baby - a little girl, weighing in at 6lbs. 2oz - so 11oz heavier than Harry was. She was born at 10.04am this morning.
Poor little babe had a slightly complicated delivery, so she and her mum are being kept in for a day or two. Her little face is beautiful (obviously) but on the photograph you can see she looks a bit battered, but that will sort itself out in a few days.
She has dark hair and pretty large hands and feet, so she probably takes after the Appleby side, well, that's what your dad says.
We dropped Nicki's shopping off, made her some lunch, gave her a glass of fizz to toast the baby and told her as much as we knew. Before we made the trek home we were able to nip into the maternity hospital and see Davina and the baby for twenty minutes.
Davina was looking radiant and the baby was fast asleep. Both doing beautifully.
I must dash now and ring the Aged One to furnish her with a few more details. No doubt her telephone will be red hot today!
We have to collect Harry from nursery very soon, he will be staying with us again tonight as John is staying with Davina until much later this evening.
When do you start work again?
Look after yourself, let me know if you are available for a Skype call anytime.
Ooodles of love,
