Hello Elliot

Good morning everyone, hope you had a good weekend...

It was a very exciting and emotional one here. As you know Daniell was induced on Thursday , and her labour lasted until Saturday lunchtime when her consultant decided that it was time for a c section. So at 2-45pm baby Elliot Elijah Rice joined our family.

Adam was hands on at the birth, and I am so proud of the way that both Danielle and Adam have handled everything that life has thrown at them this past few months.


Elliot is only 34 weeks but a surprising 5lb 1oz, and such a little fighter..

We went for our first visit yesterday and it is so hard not being able to cuddle him, but I know there will be plenty of time for that. He is struggling at the moment with his oxygen levels, and obviously can't feed but the nursing staff are amazing and he is in good hands...( oh and the subbed is helping too.)

It is going to be a busy weeks, I have workshops in Hazel Grove, and Edgeley, dt samples to make and a magazine commission to fulfill.....oh plus Mummy and Granny duties...

Have a great week all...

Much love and hugs

From a very excited proud to be called Grandma....

  1. Congratulations Grandma. So glad all is well.

  2. Congratulations again Jo xx

  3. Congratulations Grandma, that first hug will be so special when you can finally have it. Sending well wishes to Danielle, Adam and baby Elliot. Xx

  4. Bless his little heart, proud Grandma and a proud mummy.
    God bless you all xxx

  5. Poor Danielle must have been exhausted! and Adam too I expect :) He looks such a lovely, cuddly baby too (not Adam, Elliot - well perhaps to his mum maybe). He still looks comfy! Amazing little boy.

    See you tomorrow xx Chrissie

  6. Thanks ladies for your lovely comments Danielle is exhausted but we are so proud of her and Adam . Baby Elliot is doing so well and has been allowed out of his incubator for cuddles with mummy and daddy...hugs all round.....xxxxx
