Baby, Baby Baby The First Of Many

Today i would like to share a baby card i have made for one of my sons, whose friend from work has just had a baby boy. There must be some thing in the water on the south coast as there is about to be several new arrivals over the next few weeks. Emily's friend from work had a little girl 2 weeks ago and her best friend Sophie is due the coming week. Then Charlies mum and her partner are expecting a little girl at the end of the month.
