Z is emotional…

…in a happy way. El has just sent photos of her baby and there’s a lovely profile with the features clearly shown.

Dilly and I were talking and she said it made her feel quite tearful too. “If it were a friend’s baby, I’d be interested and pleased, but I wouldn’t feel like this,” she said. “It’s different when it’s family, isn’t it?”

And it is, so I won’t go on about it here – though I won’t promise not to show you a picture when the baby is born.

    Unless they pick an excruciating name…that’s gotta put a dampener on it.

    I really feel for some of my parents’ friends whose grandchildren have been lumbered with the most appalling names.

    Not that you’ve got anything to worry about, if “Squiffany” and “Pugsley” are anything to go by…

    Excellent news. And how pleasing – a profile and everything! My first scan was tremendously pleasing, because we’d nothing else, but the second one, which like El’s, had a profile visible, just knocked me out, and still does. Happy times. 🙂

    I can’t imagine my daughter picking an awful name, but I’ve friends who don’t greatly like either of their grandchildren’s names. My m-i-l thought El’s name was a bit odd at first and kept forgetting it for a week or so.

    I’ll write about the best bit, from my point of view, later. A bit rushed right now.

    My daughter is going all soft over her friend’s newborn baby so maybe she’ll get broody herself and make me a gran. (Gotta find a man first though . . . . .ah well.)

    Let’s hope she finds one soon, Sablonneuse!

    Very useful, grandchildren, WG – they can fetch me my stick and my glasses when I’m old. And dig the garden for extra pocket money.

    Soft? Moi?
