I have passed on all good wishesmto Paul. I wont be going to the hospital till tomorrow, and then I,ll give Caleb a big hug from all qwellwishers

Was,nt sure about the name , it knocked me a bit when I heard it. Knew it was biblical , learned that from the film 7 brides for 7 brothers . where they were all given biblical names, thanks Ron for the info on the meaning of both names.

As most of you know why this is so special a day for our family , I have been on cloud 9 sionce seeing the joy on my son,s face . A sight I have,nt seen in over a year. And from info given me by catherines sister [via catherine] my daughter in law is also smiling , again first time in over a year.

Yes a star is shining brightly in the heavens and I know Jennifer is looking down and smiling also biggrin.gif

Off now for dinner and a celebration with familythen I,ll give Caleb a big hug from all qwellwishers

Betty,

If ever a couple deserved to smile again its your paul and shirleyann, wub.gif no doubt you will be wetting the wee fella's head tonight im very happy for all of you.

A dont think any of us would get a chance at babysitting this precious wee baby. laugh.gif
Anne1

betty2
Babysittin ?ladies want that in writin wub.gif slightly inebriated here , but happy. You have all been very kind in youre sentiments, and lennox you takin timr oot fae yir packin thanks, in return ah,ll try an order up calmer weather fur yir arrival.

Noo java an melody who.s the bouncy castle an rockin horse fur ? methinks you ladies are returnin to chidhood days. rolleyes.gif


Still a few glesses o wine left in the boattle so ah,ll sleep the night. Honestly I have had very little sleep in the past 24 hours, phone husnae stoapped ringin an ftiends calling in . Everyone has shared in this wonderful moment with us. It has certainly put this year off to a great start for all of us. The joy a baby can bring is a wonderful experience and no-one deserves it more than Paul and Shirley-ann. Thanks members my heart warms to you all and tonight you are all in my prayers
