The arrival of Toby

My elder daughter, Bryony, and her husband, Mark, have a new arrival – Toby Arthur.  He weighed in at just over 8lb in the early hours of Tuesday 18th.  Mum and baby are both doing well and are already home. 

Err, what's all the fuss about?

Aren't I handsome!

Toby is my first grandchild but is about to be followed soon (hopefully very soon) by my first granddaughter as my younger daughter, Helen, and her husband, Ian, are expecting the arrival of a girl who is now two days overdue.  Toby was nearly a fortnight late (poor Bryony!) and we are hoping that Helen won’t be kept waiting so long.

All this waiting can be boring.


  1. ♥ Aww, how cute! ♥ Congratulations to the parents - and the grandparents, of course! :)

  2. Cousins...hope they get to be good friends. You are entering a most special time in your life.

  3. Congratulations and a huge happy dance for the new arrival!

  4. Congratulations, double congratulations in fact.

  5. Congratulations to you all! Two weeks overdue - poor Bryony indeed! Good to know she and little Toby are well.

  6. CoOngratulations to the whole family!

  7. Hurray! Welcome to the world, dear Toby!
    And much love and congratulations to the newborn parents and to the two of you, brand new grandparents!

  8. Adorable!! I'm sure the two will be great friends, these babies... being born almost at the same time, and all. It's nice to have "built-in" friends, innit?

  9. Thanks everyone for all the kind comments.

    Signed, Toby's very proud father
