Se7en hold #8….

Thank-You All!!! I cannot believe how many of you stopped by and wished us all the best – I loved reading through all your comments!!! And you went to so much trouble to say such nice things!!! I thought I would reward you all with a couple of pictures of life with a newborn…

Together we have held him…


Some of you unlurked! You traveled from far and wide! Yes Debbie you predicted the date!!! Yes Sue I called the father person as you were leaving and said: “Don’t be late home from work…”

His parents have held him…


And to all of you who think we are awesomely and wonderfully blessed – you are so right!!! Eight healthy babies born safely and soundly into our hearts and arms… We are truly blessed and grateful to Our Father In Heaven… And I have to say not a lot of you should go into gender prediction as a career!!!

His big brothers and sisters have smothered him in kisses and pokes and cuddles and hugs… and they have all held him…


There is a lot of holding going on in our house at the moment!!!

Really guys this post is just a big blog thank-you for all the welcoming, prayers and love for Hood #8…

And yes I will tell you the whole story of his arrival… but getting to a keyboard is kind of secondary when I have this sweet bundle to hold!!!
