Our DC3 was born 9 days ago grin. She is a she and our house shall now forever more be under a cloud of pink over my dead body. DDs 1 and 2 are delighted. Mr Robino is even prouder than he ever was. All is well in the Robino household.

I had to tell you all because I'd confessed on the wedding thread to being pregnant very early on to try and explain away my lardiness glorious blooming on the photos blush

MmeLindt Mon 28-Feb-11 14:06:06

oooh, how lovely. I remember that thread.

Congratulations to the whole family.

robino Mon 28-Feb-11 19:19:50

Thanks MmeLindt. And a shameless bump because whilst everything is well in the household, DH went back to work miles away yesterday so I am stuck to the sofa cluster feeding with no-one to talk to....

Congratulations! How lovely. grin

I remember your wedding thread too!

MmeLindt Mon 28-Feb-11 19:35:13

Bump for those who remember this sweet story.

robino Tue 01-Mar-11 16:43:31

OK. One last shameless and self serving bump so that I have something to read and cheer me up while I'm glued to the sofa with only greedyguts DD3 for company tonight. And then I'll give up, promise blush

Lulie110 Tue 01-Mar-11 16:45:10

I remember that thread. Did somebody not attend wearing festive knickers?
Anyway congratulations - three girls is very cool smile

PaperView Tue 01-Mar-11 16:50:22

DId you used to have an 'h' in your name??

Anyway - i remember too, congratulations

SorryDoIKnowYou Tue 01-Mar-11 16:50:41

Aw, I remember! Congratulations.

Lulie110 Tue 01-Mar-11 16:53:55

KNickers on head, no? Or have I remembered it wrong?

onepieceoflollipop Tue 01-Mar-11 16:54:49

I remember, what a lovely update.

I also remember that you bumped into the registrar when you went for a meal later on your wedding day and she entertained your dds for a few minutes while you had pudding? (I think?)

PoledrathePissedOffFairy Tue 01-Mar-11 16:54:50

Oh, I remember that thread - congratulations to you all!

onepieceoflollipop Tue 01-Mar-11 16:55:24

Knickersonmahead I think is her full name (or similar). Never met her but she sounds lovely.

Bramshott Tue 01-Mar-11 17:01:25

Ooh, I am just looking at your lovely wedding pics again (via knickers link to photobucket). Congratulations to robino, Mrrobino and your gorgeous DDs

I knew knickers came in to it somewhere!

I remember your thread it was just, well... lovely!

Congratulations on your new arrival I'll be VERY impressed if you DON'T succum to the pink haze (3 dd's here too !)

FourFortyFour Tue 01-Mar-11 17:10:20

I remember the thread too and congratulations on your lovely new baby grin.

Aww, another one that was all soppy with the romance and craziness of it all, congratulations smile

Congratulations, I remember the wedding thread.

robino Tue 01-Mar-11 20:28:53

Thanks you soppy lot. You've cheered up a lonely, knackered. post-natal woman tonight! Am stuck to the sofa with DD3, DDs 1 and 2 are in bed, it's another 3 days til DH comes home and there's nothing on the TV!

Trillian - I was pregnant when we got married so not a honeymoon baby. Oh, and we didn't have a honeymoon grin

Northern - indeed Knickersonmahead was a witness and wore her knickers on her head for a photo.

Paperview - nope, never had an H in my name!

Onepiece - yes, the registrar did kidnap our DDs so we could finish our meal!

Doris - I am deluded. We live under a permanent cloud of pink, there is no escape.

Bran - she is Lara Ruth. Bunfight? Would give me something to do while I feed lovely Lara for approximately 37 hours straight.

I may go and read the original thread and remind myself how nice everyone was!

onepieceoflollipop Tue 01-Mar-11 20:33:54

Lara Ruth - gorgeous name.

Many congratulations! I'm sharing the joy of sleepless nights, I'll be thinking of you in the we small hours xxx

Pancakeflipper Tue 01-Mar-11 21:08:23

I remember that!! It was brill to read.

Awwwwww congrats and how many of us do you want to witness the birth?

Pancakeflipper Tue 01-Mar-11 21:09:01

did - not Do. Rahhhh

Congratulations, and thank you for posting it is really nice to hear the next instalment - photo please! grin

FourFortyFour Wed 02-Mar-11 16:18:38

I hope you printed out the thread and do the same with this one. It will be a lovely story for your children to remind you when you are too dotty old to remember it grin.

ArfurBrain Wed 02-Mar-11 16:24:30

yay! Many congratulations

Fuzzywood Wed 02-Mar-11 16:28:29

Congratulations, lovely namely the way. I only have one DD and failing in my attempt to hold back the sea of pink and glitter, you have no hope grin

Fuzzywood Wed 02-Mar-11 16:29:57

That was supposed to say 'lovely name by the way', I blame the sleeping but wriggling baby on my lap smile

robino Wed 02-Mar-11 20:40:14

FourFortyFour - no, I don't have a print out. I meant to and forgot. I will do it soon; thank you for reminding me!

Blatherskite Wed 02-Mar-11 21:09:38

I remember that thread! I think I even had a name change for the occasion...

Congratulations on the new baby. Lara is a lovely name

robinosotherbridesmaid Wed 02-Mar-11 21:11:58

Wigeon Wed 02-Mar-11 21:18:40

Aw - I remember too (lurked on your wedding thread) - belated congratulations on the wedding and many congratulations on the birth of Lara. And I specially remember from the photos how gorgeous your other DDs are too. smile

Nice to be reminded of Knickers and her headgear too!

foundwanting Wed 02-Mar-11 21:25:07

Congratulations to all the robinos.

I remember your thread, and always eye people hopefully when I walk past the registrar's office, just in case someone needs a last minute witness.

AmandaCooper Fri 01-Apr-11 07:26:07

Of course we remember your thread, it was awesome! It's lovely to hear your news. When and where is the Christening?!

Fimbo Mon 18-Apr-11 16:47:45

Oh I remember too, congratulations. The other lady who was a witness had gorgeous shoes.

FoundationGarmentsOnOnesHead Tue 26-Apr-11 16:54:18

Beautiful name Robino!

So, the big question....Does anyone know yet?

robino Mon 02-May-11 09:15:47

Knickers! Foundationgarments! Will update you on the other thread!

ThinkingAboutBoden Wed 08-Jun-11 15:53:13

I remember that thread! It was one of the first I really followed after joining/lurking around Mumsnet for a while beforehand.

I "Mumsnet" (not a verb I know!) a lot more now but that thread/your story will always hold a special place in my heart as something I often repeat to people whenever I find myself discussing internet forum type stuff and how it's not always only for weirdos/thickos etc etc!

Anyway - I also think it was the longest/nicest thread I ever read out to discussed with my husband too.....

Also the first time I ventured onto somebody's profile to look at a picture etc....see? Told you! A special place in my (usually) cold, cold heart!

Ahhhh - great news about your third baby - three girls! How utterly wonderful - spoken as a third baby girl and easily the bestest sister! ;-)

Many congrats to you all!

ThinkingAboutBoden Wed 08-Jun-11 15:54:51

Oh darn it! I meant wink - always forget to write it or leave out the - !!

Concordia Wed 08-Jun-11 15:57:15

i remember! congratulations.

koolforcats Sun 12-Jun-11 10:14:27

Wow, I've just been doing idle MN drifting.....had no idea I'd stumble across this.....which of course led me to reading your entire wedding witness tale! Talk about giving me the warm and fuzzies! A gorgeous story, fabulous photos and a lovely new baby girl! Ive never before felt compelled to randomly post on a thread but I just had to say huge congrats to you all! wine

Ps I've not spotted your witnesses on this thread yet....I'm sure they'll love your news smile

WuzzAndBuddy Mon 20-Jun-11 12:34:50

I'm another one like koolforcats... stumbled across this thread, ended up reading your whole wedding thread! Even shed a tear a year too late! blush

So here I am, saying congratulations on your marriage and on the birth of your DD, yes I know I'm way too late but your story is lovely and made me smile today, thankyou!

stretch Thu 23-Jun-11 12:28:47

I remember the thread as well, wore my F5 button out that one did!

Congratulations. Lara is a beautiful name.
