Congratulations, Gabriel Syme!

Great news!  blogger, Gabriel Syme, already Dad to a little toddler daughter, is now father to a second bouncing baby daughter.  The newborn – Felicity Hope  – arrived on Tuesday evening, 28th November, weighing 7 Ibs 9oz. She and her mum are both well.

Congratulations, Gabriel Syme – and a huge welcome to little Felicity Hope, named after an early martyr and a  theological virtue!  Nothing like holding a newborn to a very high standard! 

There’s so much bad news to report and discuss, so here’s an opportunity to relax and congratulate our fellow blogger on this wonderful news. 

A word of warning, though – a “daddy’s girl” she may be, but is this what lies ahead?

Baby jokes welcome!

  1. Wonderful news! Congratulations Gabriel Syme and Mrs Gabriel Syme!

    I know this joke is not pc but it made me laugh:-

    Q Why do we dress baby girls in pink and baby boys in blue?
    A Because they can’t dress themselves.

  2. All the best, Gabriel Syme – can’t think of any baby jokes but if God doesn’t send you a couple of sons, you’ll find it’s no joke battling the wills of three women at home, morning, noon and night, LOL! That’s for the future, though, for now – fabulous news. Enjoy the moment!

  3. I’d like to add my congratulations, Gabriel, but I wonder if your wife is saying that the new baby is the image of her father, but not to worry, just so long as she’s healthy! Ha ha!

  4. Thanks to all for your kind words, much appreciated.

    We are all very happy and baby is doing well – we are very blessed!

    I’ve had a few joking comments about having “a house full of women” (as Nicky hints at above!). I guess I will need to get a dog or something to redress the balance! haha! 😉

    Thanks again to all!

  5. Wendy Walker and I were privileged to know the great pro-life Father Paul Marx (+ R.I.P.). One of Father’s favourite quips was this one…..

    ‘A boy for you, a girl for me – and heaven help us not to have three’.

    If you hadn’t guessed, he was very much in favour of BIG families.

  6. My sincere congratulations and good wishes, Gabriel Syme, to you and your wife. It’s great to have two little girls, company for each other as they get older. That’s fantastic news!
