I've been missing in action again all week.
But I have a VERY VERY good reason for this.
I became a granny on saturday morning - a whole week early!!!!
Let me tell you I am so thrilled and excited. It is such a wonderful feeling - I seem to have a permanent smile plastered on my face at the moment :)))
I'm going to put some pictures up before I tell you all about the exciting (and nerve wracking) week we have had.
Gran (that would be me) and Riley :))
A Lovely Mum and Baby Shot
Isn't my girl lovely?
The Perfect Wee Family
I think you might agree that Riley is a wee stoater (that's a good Scottish word for best thing since sliced bread, lol).
Ok, after that picture fest (hope you aren't too bored with my showing off :)).
Laura has struggled a wee bit for the last couple of weeks with the usual aches and pains of late stage pregnancy but on tuesday evening she started suffering from very bad kidney pain (she does suffer from a kidney problem but it's not too severe a problem normally).
Anyway it got so painful she had to pay a visit to the hospital very late on tuesday evening. It was discovered that she had a uti and was given painkillers and antibiotics.
On the thursday she went to see her obs consultant who decided she was going to be induced on friday, however she went into labout herself on thursday night at around teatime.
They waited until 4am on friday to go to the hospital. All day friday was a waiting game, receiving and sending texts from Kevin to tell me what stage she was at.
And after a 35 hour labour I finally got the text I was looking for at 1.45am on Saturday morning.
Baby Riley born at 1.26am weighing 7lb 1oz. Mum and baby doing well.
We went visiting yesterday - I could hardly wait to get there, lol. I'm pleased to report her kidney problem seems to be on the mend and she is looking so good for a girl who is totally exhausted.
I'm so proud of her!!!
We are going again next weekend and taking Karen and Emma with us. They couldn't go as both were working and couldn't get away.
I have to warn you that you may get a wee bit fed up of baby pictures on this blog after a while - I hope not though. :))
