The simplest toy, one which even the youngest child can operate, is called a grandparent. ~Sam Levenson

Well I have just entered a new phase of my life and what a glorious phase that is!
The young man responsible for this change was born 8th June 2011 in the year of the Rabbit, weighing in at just under 4 kilos, 53cm long, with the thickest head of hair and he has captured the hearts of those all around.

Henry Thor is the first grandchild born to both sides of the family...he is totally loved by us all and no doubt will be utterly and unconditionally spoiled and adored by his doting grandparents.

Apparently after we left the hospital on our very first visit the nurse said to Olga and Ross 'are they by any chance first time grandparents'....were we that obvious?

I could literally sit and look into his face for hours...Ross calls this the grandparent zen position.


  1. He is gorgeous Nanna Vicki, you all look so proud. I cant wait to hold him. xx

  2. Have been waiting for this post. I saw Henry on Skype the other day....he is perfect. I can't wait to hold him either. XX

  3. Yep! He's adorable as are his parents who are doing a wonderful job, so relaxed and natural. We're all truly blessed.

  4. What a beautiful baby! And thanks for your blog - I am also an "Icelandophile".

  6. Thanks everyone, he is a beautiful little soul and has inherited his parents easy going, placid natures.
