Elliot and Grandpa

Welcome to the world, Elliot

My daughter Susanne gave birth to her first child, Emily, when she and Dave lived in Australia, so i had no chance of experiencing her first year. Now she has just given birth to their second child, a boy that they call Elliot.

It was a complicated birth and Elliot was born a month early on the 15th of February and had to lie in an incubator for the first nights. But Susanne and Elliot came home after nearly a week and now everything is fine. I paid my first visit to my grandchild a month later and you see me with Elliot. Images taken by Susanne on her iPhone.

Elliot was asleep all the time in my arms, so Susanne thought I was a “child-whisperer”.
