G is For ...... Gorgeous new Grandson

My Gorgeous first Grandchild has arrived and I'm over the moon.

Our daughter and her fiancee have made us very proud Grandparents.

Our new little Grandson was born on the 15th at the Angliss Hospital, Upper Ferntree Gully Victoria.

His birth weight was 3380 kg (7lbs 3oz) and his length was 48 cm.

With that mop of hair it's any wonder his mum had heartburn and it's also very lucky she is a hairdresser!

Mum and Bub are both well and Dad is recovering and being wonderfully supportive.

The only drawback is that we live 3 hours drive from them and with having a 7 day a week General store it takes some planning to get away.  

Bub wasn't due until the 2nd of July and we were closing up shop to go and spend the weekend with his mum before the birth but Friday morning she rang and said she thought she may be in labour.
It never rains but it pours around here and as it happened Friday morning there was a very sad fatal car accident at our corner which took out a power pole and our electricity.
We were trying to wait until the power was restored before we left but it was taking ages as a new pole had to be brought in.
Then our daughter rang again about lunchtime and said she was going to the hospital so we decided that was it. We unplugged everything that we could just in case of a power surge and luckily we have a very lovely neighbour who kept an eye on things and fed the dog.
We arrived at the hospital only an hour before his birth.
Being country bumpkins every time we went to the hospital to visit we got lost and took a different road!  There a lots of scenic routes around that area.
Monday morning we had to come home and I so didn't want to but I am hoping to be able to go down again next week for a few days. 
Fingers crossed!
