Did I mention …
did I? Did I mention recently how much I love my small sidekick?
She came to several meetings with met this week … one lasted over 3 hours, she slept on the desk, she drank 2 bottles of milk, she breastfed (just below the table hight so nobody could see) and she just sat and grinned at everyone … it was wonderful and quite lightened the tone of a long board meeting. We also had a few walks, went and met friends and their babies and sat and played with her new favourite toy Mr Giraffe (Mr Sheep has been relegated to second place).
She smiled alot, she got so overtired a couple of times, refusing to go to sleep as she just wanted to look at the world for a little bit longer even though she was utterly shattered and all in all she bought some extra magic into the world and to all who came into contact with her. Hope danced, she shouted, she ate like a small hungry beast and all in all wore me out totally and made me so so happy.
That’s all … she’ll be 16 weeks old on Thursday … I can’t believe it really and I also find myself saying to people, “When she was a baby …”, what a miracle she is, and how lucky am I? And what on earth am I going to do once she starts to be mobile???
The pictures sum up the last few days.
