I am now a great grandmother, yea!
Here is Clio Therese.
Born last Thursday at 7.05
weighing in at 7lb 14oz.
and 52 cm long.

She's all wrapped here but she has hands like
Muhammed Ali and feet like Ian Thorpe.

My granddaughter's happiness
made me tear up.
I anticipate a weekend of blubbing.

I can't think of a better or more beautiful reason to weep.

EC, She rang me and had that euphoric new mother voice, I hope it stays like that.

Andrew, She takes after her mother who had a really wild hair do when she was born. It would have made you jealous.

lotta joy, A lot of tragedy in the family but I think could be the real start of her own life.

Annie O, in our young days a great grandma was practically on the way out, now great grandma is the new grandma. She was born on the night of the last sliver of the old moon.

Robbert, hardly any boys born in either family, women rule!

River, I like them when they talk, newborns terrify me. They're so tiny and breaky.
