Alastair and Ishie have a new baby sister.  Born June 6, 2013 Harriet Barbara is John and Mairi's new beautiful daughter and our 4th grandchild.

John took this photo of the family when Harriet was one day old. She was born in the Southern General Hospital and this is her little cot at Mairi's bedside.


Kate D. knitted this Shetland shawl for Mairi's first-born and so it has been brought out of the cupboard for use again. 


Harriet in the doll's bed wrapped in Kate's shawl.  Weighing 8 lb 6 oz at birth she will soon be too big for the little doll's bed (which I got from someone in Maxholme Playgroup 35 years ago!) All the babes have had their photo taken in this little bed; that is for another post.


Time for tea and cupcakes.

Auntie Iseabail visiting on Sunday.  Alastair and Ishbel enjoying the gifts and attention.

Ishbel and her new little sister in the back garden on Sunday.

Time to wet the baby's head (at Maggie's in the back garden with friends.)
