A new life enters the world
Less than a week ago my 4th grandchild, and second grandson, arrived into the world. That’s two new babies during Covid for our family – it’s hard enough at the best of times having a new baby, but with the extra (totally understandable) conditions placed on things like hospital visits and border closures, it hasn’t always been easy.
I’m happy to say that baby Zachary and his family are doing well. They are settling into life with a newborn and a 2 year old at home. It’s an exciting time for everyone – but tiring too!
I was thrilled to meet my newest grandson later on his first night in the world and I think the smile on my face says it all.
The ebb and flow of life
A few days later, I was nursing baby Zachary, and as he clutched onto my finger, I was taken back to that same day 3 years ago, when I held my father’s hand for the final time. In those three years a lot has happened and my dad has been sorely missed.
Life – it ebbs and flows doesn’t it?

Despite my three daughters living in different states of Australia, and one living in England, I have managed to be there when each of my four grandchildren have come home from hospital. How amazing is that? I know I’m lucky to be in the position to have been able to do this and appreciate the fact no end!
I’m very happy with that statistic as you can imagine! I’m also lucky to have had a grandchild each year since 2018. Girl, girl, boy, boy. So much love!
I’m grateful too that my granddaughter in England was born before the Covid restrictions hit and although I can’t see her in person, I am a part of her life.
Thank you to my daughters and their families for allowing me into their lives to help welcome their new babies home. Sharing the news with you all is also something I don’t take for granted and I always get permission beforehand.
Thanks for all your congratulatory messages and love.
Life is so precious isn’t it?
