It's a Girl! (part two)
Many congrats, of course, to Urban Cowgirl.....and I also have news.
So last night, I'm crawling into bed at the usual time - about 3, 3.30ish - and the phone rings. Me and the Mrs look at each other and say "Anita!" at the same time. Sure enough, it's Anita....one of Marilyn's. "Mum, Paul's on his way down with the kids....and then we're carrying on to the hospital. Waters have broke."
Ten mins later, Lee, Dan, Dave and Jack are unceremoniously deposited on the doorstep. (It was all arranged ages ago!)
Well - kids are all excited, no chance of sleep.....endless cups of tea later, phone rings again. Paul this time. "It's A Girl!" (We did already know, but I don't think he quite believed it....they've already got 5 lads!)
Chloe May arrived at 5.32 and weighed in at 7lbs 13ozs......or as Marilyn said, "How many's that? 17? We need a bigger planner......"
two of Anita's sisters arrived around 9-ish....they had an appointment, we'd already agreed to babysit so we had another four kids to look after....the youngest just 9 weeks old!!!
Just getting back to normal now....everybody's gone home, it's very peaceful......
Hope to have some pics later, son-in-law promised to e-mail me some as soon as they're uploaded.....
Don't think I'LL need any rocking tonight.......
:D :D :D

Super Congratulations to you and yours family, Vic.
By the way, I thought that Mr. Vic Lewis of Newton-le-willows, England just delieved a baby girl. (from the title of the thread...)
Oo Congrats Vic! :D
You definitely must post pics when you get them.
Since you have so much babysitting experience and I could use a good British nanny, the job is yours end of September if you feel like moving. :lol:
All my life I wanted to be somebody. Now I see I should have been more specific.
Congratulations, Vic! :D

I looked on the news forum last night and though oh well not much going on. But, there you all are up at the Pool producing some more the next generation. Many congratulations to you all from all of us down in the South western part of country.
And to boot, there's "Urbancowgirl" with another on the way and photo's too, our best wishes to her too for later in the year.
It's all happening here guys. :D :D :D :D :D
