Grandad

Jacob, one hour old, on 23/4/11
My daughter Kate excelled herself this morning by producing my first grandchild, Jacob, six pounds, at 6.15am.  Three and a half weeks early, but the poor lad was clearly feeling too hot and elected for an early bid for freedom.

Congratulations to Kate and Simon, and if Kate reads this (which I don’t think she will) I really don’t think you need to change his name to Gollum – I’m sure his looks will improve!

Congratulations to all. Did he use Jacobs ladder on his bid for freedom?

Mega congratulations, Martin! Now you can really begin to live! Young Jacob simply looks appropriately astonished by the fix he's found himself in now he's out in the world's daylight. Very, very best to all.

Thank you for all the comments. We visited young Jacob last night and were told that he looks like his Dad...!
