Two sweet bundles of joy
Last Thursday saw the Monklands population grow by two, as a pair of little beauties were born less than a couple of hours apart.
First to arrive, at 9.59am, was baby Julia MacKenzie who weighed in at 5lbs 12oz.
The new tot is pictured with delighted dad Victor, from Airdrie.
Coatbridge couple Liam and Emma Boyle then welcomed son Arlo into the world at 11.39am, with their wee bundle of joy tipping the scales at 9lbs 5oz.
Both babies were born at Wishaw General Hospital’s maternity unit.
The Advertiser wishes the newborns and their families all the best for the future.
