And I thought that ducklings were exciting!

They are, but not as exciting as the arrival of our first twin grandchildren! Don’t worry, this isn’t going to turn into a  gloating granny blog, but I couldn’t resist sharing our special event. Jake and Holly were born yesterday, to Matthew and Sarah, in the early afternoon at 33 weeks. Holly was first into the world weighing 4lb 7oz, Jake half an hour later at 4lb 12oz. A bit of an ordeal for poor Sarah but she is now fine and both babies doing well, Holly being taken out of her incubator for the first time today letting the new mum and dad have their first cuddle. It looks like Jake might have to wait for his until tomorrow! I’m pleased to say that Matt also sounds fully recovered today!

    Well, now you know how it feels to be grandparents! So happy to hear of the safe arrival of the twins, although I dreamt last night that they had arrived and were boys, so half right. Congratulations from the Granny in Broughty Ferry, it’s such a joyous occasion, and I can’t help thinking of the fun they will have with all your residents, feathered and otherwise.

      Thanks Aieane and yes, we’re looking forward to the future when they visit and we can introduce them to Garybuie goings-on! They’re ‘Townie Twins’ after all so hopefully they’ll find everything exciting!

      10 pounds?!!! Goodness, there must be something in the New Zealand air! Having said that, mine were both over 9 pounds so I know what you mean about not being able to imagine a baby so small! They look so fragile.
