Hi everyone,

Despite all the terrible things happening at the moment, i thought i'd share my good news with all of you. My daughter gave birth to her Son yesterday at 12.03pm, weighing 8Ib. Mt first grandchild, his name is Noah. He's absolutely gorgeous and looks just like my daughter! I'm so excited to meet him when they come home, hopefully in the next couple of days. :)<3

    @poppy123456 Congratulations Nanny Poppy! I was only thinking about you yesterday and wondering if the baby had arrived yet. So very pleased for you and your family. A new baby is always wonderful xxx Just think you will soon be nuzzling his little head :) Please update us when you meet him!

    Well that has kind of worked if you click the link. Think that is the best i can do @poppy123456. I tried!

    Thank you everyone for all the kinds words. It certainly is lovely to receive such wonderful news and even more so during these horrible times.

    I'm still waiting to meet Noah because they haven't come home from hospital yet. My daughter wasn't feeling so good yesterday due to the hemorrhaging and he wasn't feeding very well. She said hopefully they will be home sometime today.

    @Cressida i will certainly update once i've seen him.  :)

    @anisty i'm not sure how to add a smile like that either. I did click the link to look though, so thank you :)

    Home sometime today! How exciting is that?!!! Love the name btw. 
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Member Posts: 22,218 Disability Gamechanger
    I'm trying not to get too excited because i thought they maybe home yesterday but that changed when i spoke to her mid afternoon yesterday. I'm sure she'll contact me sometime this morning and hopefully she'll know by then.

    My youngest daughter is super excited and can't stop looking at pictures of him. As her school is a special needs school (although she likes to call is colloge) it's not shutting because of the virus, as there's only 2 other students in her class. I only found this out yesterday when they contacted me. She's going today as normal. I have promised her that i will wait until she's home before going to visit them but i'm counting the hours lol.

    It's lovely to have something to look forward to during this extremely difficult time.

    Fingers crossed you both get to meet the little one tonight @poppy123456:) I'm glad you have something fantastic to hold onto at the moment!

    (@anisty: I've fixed the gif issue for you. If you're using our desktop site, it should be a simple right click on the image and a copy-paste into the message box. If you're using mobile, it's a bit more complicated, but we'll see if we can come up with a solution or guide soon!)

    Aw thanks @Adrian_Scope! That looks really cute there now :)
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Member Posts: 22,218 Disability Gamechanger
    Unfortunately, they can't come home again today because my daughter isn't well and needs a blood transfusion this evening and then they want to monitor her before they let her go home.

    Sadly there was more complications than i was made to believe. Worried, is an understatement. :'(

    Noah is doing well though.

    @poppy123456 I'm sorry to hear your daughter needs a transfusion. She is in the right place and I'm sure they will look after her well. It's nice to hear that your other daughter is so excited at becoming an auntie!
