Cameron Michael and Shaylie Mai

14 Mar

A couple of weeks back I blogged on the birth of my grandaughter Shaylie Mai

Shaylie was born on the 25th to my daughter Jennifer and Andre ,baby doing well.

I mentioned at the time that my three children were all going to be parents , all within the space of a month each , all is going to plan in the old Emu aka Ians breeding programme.

Yesterday my youngest son and his partner Sandra welcomed Cameron Michael into the world. All red and wrinkly and a bit undercooked as he came a bit early , handsome little devil , black hair and well endowed like his grandad with big eyes to watch the world Mother and baby doing well , mother quite tired and father running around like a chook with its head cut off.

Here is a couple of pics of both mine and Ana’s grandaughter Shaylee Mai and our grandson Cameron Michael

The saga is not over in the breeding grounds of the Emu , my eldest son Ben and his partner Lisa are now on standby for the next hatching due shortly , will keep you up to date My little dicky ticker is getting too old for all this excitement.

        Just one correction… I belong to the 11th A/B Assn., but my father was the paratrooper. (Smitty) He loved Australia and respected her armed forces. I will be happy to take a look at the other links, thank you for supplying them.

      Anyway , hope all is well with you Princess and wish you much love

          Lovely to hear from you dear Shareena after all this time , I had thought I had lost you somewhere in the system , its really great when an old friend turns up, sounds like your life is busy now and I understand that the net tends to take a second place in the realities of life
          I do hope you are well in good health and life is smiling on you, great to have you back and send you wishes for much love and happiness

      Thank you Sue , bloody hell , how many come in a bloody litter
      Years ago they put Bromide in our army tea to cool the urges
      and now in old age they give us Viagra to stop us from falling out of bed
      What are they feeding our younger generation that I missed out on
      Breeding like bloody rabbits , talk about keeping me on my toes
      Congratulations on your up and coming arrival ,glad to know I’m not the only one with this affliction
      You write often Sue about changes but the intrinsic fact in mankind is that the art of love and self generation
      overcomes all other emotions in man
      Congratulations Sue and much love to you

        Iaughing here Emu my friend.. 🙂 Big smiles.. I also think Ian that there is such a need right now for those coming to earth Nothing is going to stop them.. This world is seeing a influx of very intelligent little offspring~ Lets face it they will need to have their whits about them.. But I also know Ian Purpose lies behind all things and I welcome them as any
        Grandparent … AND love the Fact that I can hand them back at the end of the day.. :-)..
        I had my 14mth old yesterday from 8am until 8pm.. I was in bed by 9-30pm.. Phew!… 🙂 but I wouldnt change a thing! hehe.. Take care too.. and congrats again mate.. ~Sue x

          March 15, 2012 at 8:23 am

          8am till 8pm is not damn well handing them back Sue ,5 minutes max is the legal requirement for grandparents to hold their grandchildren
          any longer its legal for grandparents to take out a restraining order on the little beggars , joking aside Sue I appreciate and understand your sentiments , they do tend to grow on you like a bloody wart , you have to live with it , a beautiful experience for any granparent but 3 in a row Sue is stretching the friendship and emotions and sanity all within a month a bit far.Thanks Sue for being around with this experience I am going through , great feeling with friends like you

And I get dropped in on alot.. which I love… but yes 3 now I think even I would struggle! :-)… Good job your the Grandpa… you can go walk-abouts! when the crying gets too much! hehe.. Best wishes sent to all your family and Ana Emu.. and anyway your an Emu.. Dont they usually bury their heads in the sand!?? Hehe
