There is a new baby Hepworth in the world and I am so happy! 

I am so thankful that mother and baby are well.

And that is all I am prepared to say at the moment, because yesterday her father (the family member who declines to be named) called me “the family bugle.” 

There may be more details forthcoming or the new baby may remain in the blog shadows, along with her father. I am awaiting clearance. 

But I can tell you that the baby is a cutie.

Thank you everyone!
Yes, I did knit the cardigan- by request not in pink or blue. Colour chosen by Jaine.

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting;
The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting
And cometh from afar;
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home:

A lovely quote from the Wordsworth poem 'Ode on Intimations of Immortality....' and one I've used on the birth of friends' children. Many congratulations on the arrival of another grandchild!

Thank you, Rowantree for the extract from Wordsworth. It’s very moving. I always think there’s something magical about new born babies.
And thank you Jenetta for your comment.
Mother and baby are well.
