Charlotte is Ashley and Lish’s new daughter and sister to Riley. She was born 2 weeks ago on the 24th June but we didn’t get to meet her until we came back to Brisbane.
She is the spitting image of Lish.
Riley and Charlotte are 15 months apart but already Riley is playing his part of big brother, when Charlotte cries he brings her his teddy to comfort her. So far she is a great baby, eats and sleeps. You forget how tiny they start because they grow so quickly.
Watching the grand kids grow and play is very special but watching Ashley love, protect and care for his children is something of a true blessing to everyone who went through the rough years with Ashley. We never thought he would survive let alone be the man he has grown into. Riley adores his Dad and follows him every where. Ashley also adores Lish and we believe it’s entirely due to her and God that has brought him to this place in his life, so thank you Lish for accomplishing the impossible, we thank God for you everyday.
On one of our trips into Goondiwindi we went into John Deere and Chris got excited about the John Deere toys.
He had to buy a little whipper sniper and circular saw for Riley. The assistant in the shop did comment on the noise of the toys but I just laughed and said that was the best part of being a grandparent, they go home with the noise.
