Hello there Iím here with the first of your eight reviews!

I donít think I have quite recovered from the cuteness of it all. I donít think I have ever read something quite as adorable as this one-shot. The mother-daughter relationship is so rarely explored in fan fiction but after reading this it makes me want to read more!

I loved how you described how Rose came into the world first with the gentle kick, and for it to then turn out more serious. It seemed so Hermione like to not even care how serious the birth was, as everything was alright in the end, and she got her Rose. I loved Ronís reaction to the whole birthing scene too.

The way you portrayed the Weasley family was great too, and it seemed perfectly in character. I think one my favourite bits about that was the mention of Fleur, and how her views had changed towards her. It just showed how much motherhood could you change you, and how it almost softens you and allows you to accept different things.

Hermioneís parentsí reaction to Rose being born seemed perfect too. The way they were a little wary at first, but then came to terms with it. I never thought about how Rose would have been named, but it seemed right that Hermioneís mum may have had some input into the decision.

I thought this was a wonderful one-shot. I think the key reason why it worked so well was that Hermioneís love for Rose never seemed to fail, and it always seemed to be there. It was just so pure and innocent, much like a baby really!

Author's Response: Why hello!

For some reason I'm obsessed with stories about mothers and daughters (well families in generally, actually) and seeing as I adore Hermione, I really wanted to write about her and Rose.

I'm so glad that you liked Ron in this. I found him quite difficult to write, and really wanted to do him justice, even though he's not such a main character here!

I've always thought that Hermione's parents are sort of sidelined in the books, and though I can see why JKR did it, I think that Hermione having a baby is the kind of thing they'd definitely want to be involved in. I liked the idea of Hermione's mother coming up with Rose's name as it kind of continues the mother/daughter thing...

It's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed this, and it's brilliant that Hermione's love came through consistently! Thanks for a lovely review :)
