It's a girl
We could not have asked for a better New Year. A beautiful baby girl delivered safely in the early hours of New Year's Day. We could not be happier.
As soon as the shops opened on the following day, I hit them running and bought up everything I could find in pink. As Mandy had decided not to find out whether she was having a boy or a girl, everything she has bought is white or lemon. Already I am planning all the beautiful little dresses I will be able to make for her. Somehow, girls always seem easier to sew for than boys - but maybe that's because I only had girls myself.
I promised myself that I would not talk too much about my brilliant grandchild, but it is going to be hard.
