….a baby that will only be quiet when her Mummy is holding her…..or……a young lady called Maisie!
This little monkey won’t even be calm for her Daddy! Her Mummy was worn out and we’d all had a go of her, then Maisie had a go… She walked around with her and bounced up and down a bit like a comedy policemen and a wonderful quiet surrounded the room…we heard little baby snuggley noises and then Imogen was asleep!! Maisie sat on a comfy chair with her and Imogen slept for the best part of an hour. Maisie was in her element and even refused her tea so she could carry on holding this snuggle bunny…special moments indeed xx
Tyler appeared to be unimpressed with his blanket but it was a bit intimidating opening up a parcel in front of a roomful of onlookers….he asked me where the rest of the presents were! I guess he remembered the bag of gifts I produced for Imogen when she was born. I think I will have to be on the look out for some bits and bobs for this little man ready for the next time we visit them.
Barry took this lovely photo of him a while later…he went upstairs to watch his favorite DVD’s and it seems he did like his blanket after all. When we were leaving, Tyler tugged at my trousers and said ……’Marianne, I don’t like my blanket’…… ‘Oh well,’ I said, ‘never mind, Daddy can have it’. He was told that it was a bit rude to say things like that and I have to say I felt a bit of a lump in my throat. His Mum wished the earth would open up! Tyler hadn’t finished telling me though, ……’ I don’t like my white blanket’….he said quietly to me so I just blew a raspberry on his chest! His white blanket is his old special snuggly blanket from when he was a baby…now that’s a bit of a result eh?
