I know that this project is a photography one and the pics I post are not top quality. But the reason I try and join when I can is because I am trying to create memories of these blurry days, which I didn’t do when Emma was a baby. And in consequence, most things I have forgotten already…
Lovely Emma, this week you have had yet another change to accept in your life. Your Bica came to stay with us for a while and she has taken the lower bunk bed. You were happy to see her but because you don’t really speak Romanian (my blooming fault), the novelty wore off quickly and now you need to be explained why she needs to stay with us for a while. “To help mummy look better after you and George”, I tell you. Still, you find it hard, all the changes, all the new people and this weekend you came up with a blinking brilliant plan to get my attention: you “developed” a blinking tic, just when I was around…I have been advised by your childminder to pretend I don’t see it and indeed, it had disappeared by Monday night. I know you find it tough, little one and I acknowledge your resourcefulness but honestly, I wish you could just tell mummy you miss me and need me. You seemed to have enjoyed our special girls-only time last night in McDonald’s, I will try and make it a habit in finding things we can do only the two of us.
This week you have taken to “writing books”, here is you drawing and writing Cinderella, all over again 🙂
Little man, I refuse to focus on the thing that plagues us at the moment, your constant waking shortly after feeding. It will pass. Instead, I will say, you seem to be a very chilled out dude who, despite being in pain, rarely cries(mummy rocks you in the pram when you seem uncomfortable, which seems to do the trick), who has started to smile and is very alert when other people are around. I look forward to taking you to Greece in the summer, to have you sleep unaided by motion and see your personality develop more and more!
Here is a picture of the two of you this week, how sweet you both are:
