ABOVE:  My overnight bag is packed, and I have Emily's Baby Bag all ready too.....

ABOVE:  PRETTY... I took this Macro photo using the new camera.

ABOVE: Coco.... looking adorable..

ABOVE:  a lovely photo  of Stew and the two dogs.... they always sit on him when he's home, never me.  *sniff*

ABOVE:  resident Junior Stud....

ABOVE:  my 'Main Man'

Today:  got quite a bit on my list of 'To Do'.... mostly hum drum shit.... and I am going to cross everything and hope Amanda goes into LABOUR today... she's had a few 'signs' things are about to start.... SO EXCITING.

ABOVE:  the new camera.  Chosen for it's High Definition video capabilities, it's high Megapixels and excellent zoom.  Obviously not for it's compactness... which is what I thought I wanted until I actually held a slim compact camera... nope, not for me!  I am too used to a chunky 'substantial' camera.  Oh well... nothing about me is 'compact' eh?   ha ha ha.


4% of babies get born on their 'DUE DATE'.....

ABOVE:  Meet Emily Drew O'B****, born this morning at 7.32am, weighing a healthy 7 pound 9 ounces...BANG ON HER DUE DATE!
I was there, it was wonderful.  Amanda did a fantastic job.  But right now she does not want another one!  lol

*SIGH*... I got a speeding ticket 5 minutes from the hospital... doing about 70km in a 60km zone.  BUGGER.  But at least I got there in time eh?  lol

ABOVE:  one more for today.  Emily and her Dad.  So cute.

Spent the afternoon on the couch trying to have a sleep... didn't happen. 
I spent hours on my feet last night at the hospital... and 3 hours driving there and back.. so I am quite tired.
Luckily Grandbabies only happen once in a while or we would be wrecks.

I better pull finger now and do something about dinner....

End of Day:  pork chops for dinner... Steve did them on the BBQ.  Hoping to get into bed early tonight.... sooo tired.
DIET: not bad, not good.
nite nite

  30. Ohhh and of course well done to DAD of Emily!!!!

  31. What wonderful news. Congratulations on the safe arrival of your new grand baby. And very special that she was bought on her due date.

    I think you should contest the speeding fine. I got off one when I was racing my daughter to the hospital when she was little.

  32. Congrats on the Baby!
    I like the camera, mine is 20X optical zoom, and I keep the digital zoom off.
    Let me know if you have trouble keeping it steady at max zoom.
    Great pics too!

  33. Congratulations on becoming a Nana again - she is beautiful x

  34. OH CONGRATS!!!! She is beauutiful, Chris! Hope everyone is resting well and Emily can come home soon. :)

  35. Congratulations on the lovely new granddaughter! She is beautiful!

  36. Congratulations! What a sweet picture of Amanda and Emily.

    Forget the ticket. He should have been sympathetic and let you off with a warning - did you try to talk yourself out of it?

  37. Awww congrats!! I bet the ticket was worth being there!

  38. Wow, what awesome pictures! I looove the flower one. I've never seen anything like it. I love fancy cameras too but half the time I can't even figure out the right settings.
