    Default Looks like a long night for me

    Called in for babysitting duties as my daughter in law has just gone in to labour.

    Soon to have a grandson too!

    Problem is now its 2am and Angel has decided she is wide awake and wants to play.

    Any ideas on how to get a 2 yr old to bed who is more excited than she was on xmas eve?

    "I want to stay up and wait for my new little brother" she says.

    When they get up late, i try to keep the lights low and let them know i want to be sleeping. i try to get my daughter to lay down watch a little tv and hopes she falls asleep.

    good luck, hope you have coffee handy (for you, i assume you know).

    best wishes for you and the whole family.

    At the moment it is a toss up between Flynn and lennon, however, we now have a late runner in Finlay which now seems to be favourite.

    Whats wrong with Paul or Chalkie im not sure, but these new fangled names make me laugh!

    In answer to the questions (firstly please excuse me as my eyes are propped with matchsticks):

    Will surely be cooking pasta to celebrate soon.

    Names, well not sure of the final choice yet, only certain that whatever is chosen will seem rather old fashioned to me.



    It is really really exciting and exhilerating.

    Sleepless night for sure and plenty of worries over the coming years no doubt. The worrying is par for the course sadly after losing a child of 12 yrs in a road accident!

    Here are a few pics:

    A very young grandad and grandson:





    Baby acting tough at 6 hours:



    Wide awake at 6 hours old:



    Going to get some sleep now aand will catch up with everything else in the morning.

    Thanks for all your kind words!
    Paul
