Callan Reeves Dobbin is home today.
Clever lad: He decided to make the joy of a first grandchild’s homecoming even greater by giving us a little scare at the start. Callan was born at 12:01am on August 11, 8lbs, 7oz. On emerging into our world, he had some trouble breathing, so he spent his first days in the neonatal intensive care unit…getting a little stronger every day, until at last his parents were allowed to take him home this morning!
‘Look, Ma, pacifier AND nasal cannula, pretty good stuff, am I right?’
With his lovely mama:
And his terrific dad (who was once MY baby…):
Proud paternal grandfather:
The two grans made chocolate-dipped strawberries for the wonderful nursing staff on both the postpartum and NICU wards:
The new family!
‘So I’m going home for the first time, what’s the big deal?’
It’s been a long time since I’ve fallen in love so hard and fast….
