But yesterday afternoon the 'news blackout' was lifted. On Monday afternoon at 3.16 pm, after 21 hours in labour, DsD2 gave birth to a little girl, whom they've called Anthea. The reason for the parents not wanting the news to be spread straight away was that they wanted to ring all their close family and friends first to tell them of Anthea's arrival. And they needed a fair bit of time to do that but first they needed to rest.
As the little family were too tired to receive visitors that night, it was next afternoon that DH and I went for a visit and a lot of cuddles!
DH has chosen 'grandpa' as his 'title'. There are 3 grandmothers and the other two didn't want 'grandma' but I did! So Grandma and Grandpa Goodwin it is!
