THE mums of Morningside Gardens – a Wishaw housing development which has become the centre of a real life baby boom – celebrated their babies’ first Christmas this week, en masse.
This year, a total of 18 bundles of joy were born to residents of the new family homes off Morningside Road; a staggering ten on the same street. News of the happy phenomenon caught the media’s attention this summer. Since then, another two couples are expecting having recently moved to the development.
Victoria Dempsey has been the sales consultant at the Stewart Milne Homes development for just over a year and has become something of an honorary auntie to the new arrivals: “With so many babies celebrating their first Christmas this year, it seems sensible to do so as one joint party, otherwise it’d be January before we got through them all!”
The Morningside Mums – the pseudonym adopted by the new parents and the title of their dedicated Facebook page – gathered in the development’s showhome for coffee and mice pieces while the children were treated to some early Christmas gifts.
