Well here she is, Rhian at only 13 hours old and sleeping like a baby should. She is tiny, that babygro she is wearing is for premature babies. She has had her blood sugar monitored frequently since she was born and it is now reading normal so she is doing just fine. Jenny is tired and drugged up with painkillers as is only to be expected after having gone through a prolonged labour and a difficult birth but otherwise she is recovering well. Such a relief that they are both okay.
Kyle is very emotional and was very tearful just after Rhian was born but now he is just a very proud and happy daddy. As for me, well I'm just relieved that they are both well and that this new little family are so happy.
It's amazing how one wee baby can put a smile on so many faces - look at me, I'm grinning like a Cheshire cat!
What a New Year! Rhian was the second baby born in East Ayrshire this year, so she is starting off life following in her grandmother Juli's footsteps and appearing in the local paper :) Needless to say, Juli is absolutely thrilled with her first grandchild.
From one very tired but delighted great-grandmother bye for now,
