First Picture of my First Grandchild

How exciting! Adam and his girlfriend had their first scan on Friday then came straight to see us and show us the photo of their teeny tiny growing baby and they now have a due date for the beginning of August.

We have no photos of Adam from scans, it wasn't something that was available then, though we did get them when we had Imogen 14 years later, in fact we have a few because I was very ill throughout my pregnancy so as well as the daily trips to have Imogen's heart rate monitored, we also had weekly scans (it was a difficult time). Names have even been partly decided for both a boy or a girl, though it's still a long wait so they may change their minds before baby makes an appearance.

I've been very lucky, Andy found me some beautiful roses in the bargain bucket (the red ones) and also bought me some gorgeous pink roses to go with them. Last weeks were yellow and lasted quite well.

I love the cheeky puppy climbing up the side of the mantle. I only put him back out this week after being packed away since before Christmas.

This is a plaque that I received for Christmas. It hangs near my favourite seat so I can glance up at it. I do really love Alice in Wonderland and this sentiment is such a good one, especially when there seems to be so much bad news around.

I've been posting on Instagram most days, I've tried to round up some of the pictures and put them on here too. I thought this photo was so cute. Alfie falls asleep in the funniest of positions, this time he was half standing with his head resting on Honey, both fast asleep.

It's my birthday tomorrow, I shall be entering my last year in my forties... goodness me, how did that happen!

Take care

  21. Congrats on your grandbaby. What a wonderful sonogram photo. Usually when the baby is that small it's hard to make out what you're seeing. Lol!! Happy belated birthday to you. I just turned 50 in January. So hard to believe how quickly the time goes. Just found your blog. Looking forward to catching up on your posts!! xo
