Been a while my friends but as the title suggests we have grown in number!
Frederick (Freddie) Stanley Griffiths finally arrived at 12.06 am on Thursday 10th November. Almost a re-run of Eliza's birth 20 months before, he decided he would vacate the mothership through the sun roof due of a decreased heart rate. Nevertheless, he appeared fighting fit and at a healthy 7 lbs 2 oz. He seemed so tiny for the first few weeks but now at 11 weeks it's amazing how quickly he's grown. He's giving us lots of smiles now and gurgles and coos when we chatter to him. Eliza has loved him to pieces from the first day we bought him home. She gives him lots of kisses and can't seem to understand why when she says "Freddie, Freddie, Freddie, Freddie" for the millionth time that day, he doesn't answer!
Life in the Griffiths house is a little crazy nowadays. During the Christmas period there's been as many as 9 of us in the house at times with kids, boyfriends, girlfriends, friends etc and it has got a little overwhelming at times. The constant tidy up is enough to make Mary Poppins weep. There are also days when I feel all of my (nearly) 41 years and think "I much too old to be doing this again". But then there are those fabulous moments, the moments of smiles and giggles, music and laughter and of course the usual and somewhat smutty Griffiths humour. We do know how lucky we are though to have such a big and wonderful family and that our house is filled with life.
Thanks for stopping by! x
