Meet Floki

My grandson has arrived.
He was born on the Isle of Man on Monday morning.  After keeping his mum, Josie and dad, awake for most of the night.
Welcome to the world little man.
He looks a lot like his dad. 
Floki is a Nordic name, which followers of the 'Vikings' series on History channel will recognise.
There is a strong Viking heritage on the island as many Norse men settled there, marrying and living with the locals, many place names on the island have Nordic origins. So a Viking name seems appropriate.
His dad Jonathan, a fisherman, looks like a Viking these days too!
I would love to be there and cuddle all three of them, but sadly that isn't going to happen for a while.
I'll just have to send lots of love instead. I'm sure I mentioned that I have sent blankets, quilts and hand knits to him already and the little angel cross stitch I recently completed arrived the same day he did! And is charged with watching over the whole family and keeping them safe.
Time to go, I have chores to do, before I sit and sew.
I might get some more pictures of Floki before they go to sleep for the night.
