New Grandfather

Just have to tell my forum friends I became a grandfather today. My new granddaughter was born at 17:05 hrs and weighed 7lb 11ozs. All well..mother, father and baby. Maybe will be looking hints for newborn shots soon!

Congratulations to all.

As you say Ed it's time to look at baby image techniques. Looking forward to seeing them

Re: New Grandfather

Congratulations to you and your family Ed.

Pleased to see the new arrival is the Imperial rather than the Metric version.

Enjoy being a Grandad, it's great.
