NOT HERE, IN HAMILTON... THERE IS A BABY !

OK, this will be quick, it's 1.15 am and Stew, the kids and I are heading off to Hamilton... our Daughter Kelly is in labour, things are a bit rough by the sound of it... and I want to be with her.

I will update once we are back in Auckland with all the goss.... later.....

We got to Hamilton at around 2.30am.... straight into the delivery room I went to be with Kelly and her partner Gordon.... Kelly was exhausted and really struggling to cope... but with 'our' determination and her hard work.....

A beautiful, healthy wee baby girl was safely delivered! Meet RENA BELLA...... 6 pound 13 ounces, not much hair, EXTREMELY cute. 4.07 am, 22nd March, 2008.

Being weighed. ... the only time is really does NOT MATTER what a girl weighs!

I'm not camera shy .... yet.....

The very very PROUD DADDY Gordon, and big cousin Griffin.

NO, WE CANNOT HAVE ONE TOO.

Yes, very special moments...

Hmmm, after having a major sookie and saying you "COULDN'T DO IT".... look at that Kelly!!! You are a MUMMY, and your smile says it all.

My totally GORGEOUS new Granddaughter !

We are back in Auckland now..... been looking at a few houses this afternoon... now back at our unit trying to rest..... had NO SLEEP (again!).... exhausted.

End of Day: and WHAT a day! I am thrilled to bits that Kelly managed to oblige me and have Rena while we were up here in Auckland! It's been a magic day.... finished off with a really lovely dinner in Mission Bay... and now we are all going to bed early cos we had NO SLEEP last night! It was worth it though.

NSV: I have had NO BLOODY CHOCOLATE, NOT ONE BIT! How good is that, being Easter an all! nite nite, and thanks for all your lovely congratulations..... Rena is my 6th grandbaby!
