New baby!!

The last couple of weeks I've been feeling a mixture of excitement, anxiety and anticipation, as the due date for the birth of my daughter's 2nd baby approached. This is the hat I knitted for the baby (unknown gender), the pattern was from Gina.

 Barney was born by emergency C section at 33 weeks but to our great relief this baby stayed in!! He was born in a great rush on Feb 18th at 3 minutes before midnight, just 3 minutes before the due date.

After a few days in hospital, his first minutes at home and first cuddle with his big brother.

Barney is so excited about his baby brother, William Henry, and is so sweet with him. A few ups and downs but both proud parents and baby doing well. As for Granny, or Gaga as I'm known, I'm excited and very tired!! An emotional and busy time.


  1. Lovely pictures Anna, hope you're not feeling too Gaga!

  2. Ohhh, what a cute little baby hat ... for a cute little baby !
    (our latest grandson got 9 months on the 18th of Feb !
    Huge is he, when you look at this !)
    Love the results of your lino cutting class !

  3. I love the hat - it reminds me of an aubergine!

  4. William Henry is totally adorable. What a loving brother he has in Barney: they are two gorgeous little grandsons!
    Many congratulations to you all.

  5. Congratulations! How lovely two beautiful boys, glad he arrived safe and well and on the due date brilliant!

  6. What a result! Your boys look gorgeous together Gaga. Now you're doubly blessed.

  7. What a lovely picture of the two boys. I very nearly put that hat aside for the new baby... but fortunately have made something else instead!
