After Edward's sleep, we debated whether to take him out to see the delights of our urban village, but decided against it, the pushchair looked too much of an obstacle course so we played with him instead.
Reaching out on the crochet blanket, wearing the Baby Surprise Jacket, it is becoming a little small for him, won't be long before his new jacket is finished, I have started the first sleeve.
Not a good picture but he was happy sitting up and playing with his toys, he has become a smiley baby, yet like his father he can be serious too. We managed supper, bath and bedtime too, he wasn't very impressed with Janet & Allan Ahlberg's Peepo, for some reason we still have our children's copy. Maybe he was tired for he fell asleep immediately, we heard little snuffles through the monitor, all was quiet until his parents were home about 11pm.
Friday and Saturday we couldn't believe how tired and shattered we felt, it was a foggy exhaustion, the awareness of the responsibility, how everything has changed since ours were little, the time taken to feed a seven month old child even one who enjoys eating, the fact that he didn't cry or scream has given us the confidence to do it again when we are needed.
