The best news in the world 

Good morning to everyone i know i havn't Blogged in a few days as i have been having such a exhausting but wonderful weekend and this is why !!!

Please say hello to Carter James Rogerson  my beautiful Grandson .Born 10.17 pm on Sunday 24th March weighing it a very healthy 8lb 2oz . I had the honour of being with my Daughter Astra from the start of her labour at 2am all the way through till she gave birth . 
I am so proud of Astra for having a natural water birth but it was so hard seeing someone you love in so much pain . Im also very proud of her partner Ashley who supported her the whole way through (even though he was nearly sick when he saw the placenta)
 Being a Nanny is the best feeling in the world and i will cherish every moment with this beautiful little boy .
Hope you all have a lovely day ((hugs))
