A beau­ti­ful start to the New Year

The Galloway News - - NEWS - Proud Charles, Amy and baby Bella

A Gatehouse fam­ily cel­e­brated the New Year with the most pre­cious gift of all – a beau­ti­ful new baby.

Charles and Amy Coid had been look­ing for­ward to the birth of their third child in the first few days of Jan­uary.

So when Bella de­cided to come into the world on New Year’s Day it was an ex­tra spe­cial mo­ment for the young cou­ple.

Charles, 33, a self–em­ployed fish­mon­ger with Fleet Fish, and Amy, 31 an NHS com­mu­nity men­tal health nurse, were thrilled their baby girl ar­rived on the first day of 2019.

Proud dad Charles said: “Amy’s due date was Jan­uary 3 so Bella ar­rived two days early. Mum and baby are do­ing ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic.”

The cou­ple have two other chil­dren, Scott, aged eight and Grace, 18 months.

Their wee sis­ter was born at 5.56pm on Jan­uary 1 weigh­ing a healthy 7lbs 8ozs.

Charles added: “We are very lucky, Bella has been sleep­ing ab­so­lutely tremen­dous. “She sleeps from 10 o’ clock till half past two in the morn­ing. “Then she gets a feed and goes back to sleep un­til seven.”
