More special deliveries start 2019 on a high
Catherine Robertson wasn’t the only lucky Monklands mum to ring in the bells with the arrival of a beautiful bouncing baby as three other lovely new arrivals entered the world on New Year’s Day.
Kirsten Morgan was giving birth to little cracker Shay just 26 minutes into 2019 after she and partner John spent Hogmanay in hospital awaiting their new son’s appearance. The Caldercruix couple cosied up to all 9lb 10oz of baby Shay and the Advertiser was on hand to capture the magical moment.
It was a long night for Airdrie mum Elona Pritchin as her new son Nathan came along at 9.50am.
Nathan tipped the scales at 8lb 3oz and both mum and baby are “doing well”.
The final New Year’s Day arrival was lovely Liam Toner, with Plains mum have a wee sister.” Vicky giving birth at 1.50pm.
Dad Alan was also on hand to shower love on his son – who weighed in at 8lb 9oz.
