The handle of the crib provided a pretty frame for my second granddaughter's first portrait. Madeleine Lily was born on Tuesday morning, 30.09.14. Unlike her big sister's abrupt and early arrival into the world, she took her time and was about a week overdue. Weighing 7lb 5oz, (3.3 kilos) she is more than twice her sister's birthweight and already seems remarkably settled, calm and much more robust. Needless to say, the whole family is overjoyed at her arrival. She is named after her maternal great-grandmothers. My mum would have been so thrilled.
