Christmas in July and Baby Jack

Afternoon my friends, a little late with this post.  My life has been a whirlwind since last Sunday. Spent most of the week at ERI, with Kenny and Hayley, she was in a slow off and on labour, but at 2 cm kept getting sent home, on Thursday morning, we were back in the early hours, and they were determined to send her home again, without a check!  It turned out she was at 4 cm and headed then to the Labour Ward, where she gave birth to Jack Alexander Brian Watson at 12.15pm, he came in at a healthy 8lb 5oz, after being told on Monday that he was just a 6lb ish mark...Jack was not due until the 25th so a very early and welcome addition to our family.

Today we have a new challenge starting at:-

Here is my card:-

Using - Say it with Words

I made this card weeks ago and have been singing this song since then, mind you the weather, makes me also think it beginning to look a lot like Christmas, LOL.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Crafty Calender - Christmas in July
Daring Cardmakers - Christmas in July
Die R Us - CH#9 - Christmas in July

I would like to leave you with a picture of Baby Jack our 11th and hopefully final grandchild for a wee while anyway, LOL...

I was given the honour of being there, when this little bundle came into the world and was most surprised with his head of hair..our family the babies are bald, until about 3 years of age..LOL.

I am sure I will get to your blogs this week, did try doing some on Saturday night, but was interrupted with a visit from this wee and hugs to you all.

Oh my word what a little cutie, he is gorgeous, congratulations to you all. Both my boys had a head of hair when they were born which would account for the terrible heart burn I suffered during both pregnancies.

Fabulous Christmas card.
