My telephone was set to ring as loudly as possible throughout Thursday and into Friday. The message I was waiting so anxiously for, finally came from my son in the wee small hours of Friday morning ... my first grandchild had arrived safely in the world at 12.30 am precisely!
So far, Master Toby Carter is a very calm young man, no doubt because he has such incredibly relaxed parents. Anthony and Hannah are making deft work of their new arrival, taking every new experience one step at a time and loving the learning process. I am completely confident they will be the very best of parents and can't tell you how delighted I am to see the oh-so proud grin permanently spread across my son's face - I don't think I have ever seen him quite as happy as he is right now!
As for me - well where to begin?!
Holding my grandson for the first time was beyond words. I am so thrilled to be Nana to this precious little boy and absolutely over the moon for my son and Hannah, now that they are a family.
Welcome to our world little Toby xxx
