brand new





Tiny, brand new, fresh baby smelling. Ewan Thomas Litchfield. Born this morning - very early. 6 lb 15 oz of perfection. My eighth grandchild - fifth grandson - a handsome boy. He has a thick shock of blonde hair. A double crown like his mama. And skin that seems a bit too big for him yet. He is calm and alert, gently swimming through the air in that dreamy newborn way. Precious, so precious.  Although he shares my heart with seven others, he has it all. I am excited to watch his life unfold. To see and know the person he will be. My heart is full this evening. Life is very good. Well done Hannah and Thomas. I love you all.


He is even cuter (if possible) after a bath. And yes, I am in love again.

Esther - Meeting them after all the anticipation is the very best moment. It beats everything.

He looks like Thomas and Hannah's baby alright! What a handsome baby - and no doubt he will grow up to be a smart guy (if he's anything like his dad and brother he will be rambunctious too!).

What a perfect addition to Thomas and Hannah's family!
