all about the girl

I've had a few thoughtful emails this week asking about how Tilly has coped with the disruption in the house recently.

Pretty well, I think!

We have been careful to always be clear who would be home with her and who would be at the hospital with Henry (Adam and I did shifts) but we were also very lucky to have Ad's folks, Jim and Jen, staying with us for the duration which gave Tilly a bit of extra stability too.

These two photos were taken by Jim sometime when I was on the hospital shift: does she look unhappy to you?! Gorgeous girl. And cute boy in the background too. Bonus.

Nice pegs.

But I digress.

I had a breakthrough tonight in which Henry finally moved on from jelly to minced meat, hooray hooray! Unspeakably happy. (Jelly is the devil's food and I have nothing good to say about it except *cough* I guess it has single-handedly kept H-Bomb's blood sugar levels up this past week.)

As a complete aside, also, I am celebrating the fact I'm about to hit 11,000 page views on this humble little old blog and I wanted to say THANKS FOR READING!!! Really. And commenting. You KNOW I love that.

You're marvelous, thank you for your company. I feel like I'm sitting down for a cup of tea with you every time I write a post. I love it, and I'm grateful.

Oh, Matilda looks very lovely and happy! If she’s anything like my kids, she’d be happy for the peace and quiet, and loving the extra attention!

Congrats on your acheivement, too!
