but a Mimi I will be.
At exactly midnight I was woken by this message from my son: “We are in hospital, labour has begun! Keep you posted”
I thought “okay, I can doze until dawn or possibly breakfast” (which are basically the same thing) …. Wrong! At 1am I got a text saying “check your email for baby photo” !!
All new babies look scrunched up and slightly alien to me and my grandson was really no different and even sported a cranky frown for his very first photo shoot. He was still absolutely beautiful.
The little guy arrived weighing 3.32kg and measuring 48.5cm long: (7.25lbs & 19.09 inches).
He’s already a film star on my Skype video. I won’t see him in the flesh until next year so thank God for Skype. I was 18 years old before I saw my paternal grandmother and contact was limited to aerogrammes and pre-booked transatlantic trunk calls a few times a year. This little guy is going to think Mimi lives in a computer as he’s going to be seeing me onscreen so often!
