She's called L.....


Granddaughter now has a name! Hooray. But I'd better not tell you it. Yesterday Grandson and I left her sleeping peacefully in the company of her mum and dad and went to the museum.


He was very busy making wheels go round by pressing things.


And more things. Can you see my reflection, by the way?


He seemed very happy but did suck his fingers a lot. I think more teeth are coming in.


He also enjoyed walking over this metal flooring. It made a good clanky noise. He tested it thoroughly.

But today we took Sirius Cat to the vet because he's been a bit listless and his breathing is slightly noisy. After x-rays and blood tests (and a lot of money) he was deemed to have fluid or something in his lungs, so he's on antibiotics and we await the result of some of the blood tests tomorrow. It's illogical to become so attached to an animal but of course we love him a lot and are worried about him. He's a very good-natured and tolerant cat, a benign furry presence, and we do hope that there's nothing seriously wrong with him.

I would quite like life to be boring for a while.

Annie said...

Hooray - a name! Though I was getting rather attached to the idea that she might be called Minnie :)

Two beautiful grand-children - how lovely. *sentimental sigh*

Hope Sirius gets better soon.

What was that Chinese curse? 'May you live in interesting times'? Boring is definitely a Good Thing. x

Congrataulations on the arrival of Miss L! Hope it's all going well for the newly minted family of four.

Molly said...

Boring is lovely, I agree. Too much excitement/drama is bad at our age!
Could she be named for her auntie? Sorry---Sherlock tendencies.....Hope the furry one recovers soon!

Jennifer said...

Lola?

Oh, poor Sirius - hope he gets well soon. Animals are definitely part of our families.

Hooray is a nice name!

I must stop lurking and tell you how much I love your grandson and watching his adventures. I am sure his sister will be just as cute and now I am waiting to hear about her name.
Get well soon Sirius.

I love RR's comment!

Jee said...

Yes,I could do with some boring too - I might manage to write a blogpost! Oh well. I'm now mentally trying every name I can think of to see which seems to suit her best - what about Lovely?

Fran said...

Congratulations! She looks very cute. I think the name is 'Lil'. It's no good hiding it.

Thimbleanna said...

Haha -- I think Relatively Retiring has caught you with the name -- too funny! L is such a beautiful name, what fun it will be to watch this new little life grow into it.

And, Isabelle, my dear ... you live in Scotland! Life will never be boring. You want boring? Move to the middle of the US!

Well, if what I read over at Molly's is correct, I LLLLIke it. And new babies are so infinitely appealing, you just want them to snuggle into your shoulder and gives little sighs, coos, sniffs and beeps.

it has been almost four years and i am still waiting for LuLu to grow into her REAL name - her parents kept it a secret for so long that i referred to her as Littelle and LuLu before and after she was born ... and now she calls HERSELF LuLu ... which isn't as exciting as Hooray.

Your granddaughter is beautiful and I still marvel at how quickly your grandson has grown from an infant to the busy little boy he is. Hope Sirius is well soon.

Molly, little L doesn't have my name (she has more letters) but she does have my initials. Though now it's been suggested, I quite like Hooray!
