Playing possum

Poor little Romy is not 100%. Which is why I've been offline for a couple of days. She is running a slight temperature and has been very clingy, not wanting to be put down.

She's been waking up several times a night and won't resettle without a feed. So needless to say I'm a little exhausted! She's also been off her food and really just wanting breastmilk. While it's tiring looking after her, I am feeling like a very proud mummy in that I am able to soothe and comfort her in a way that no other living creature can. It's an amazing realisation and feeling.

I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again. I do love being a mum.

Those pictures are wonderful - did you take them!?

Hope she is feeling better :)

Yep I took them! She doesn't usually like me taking photos but was quite happy this day.

She's still out of sorts, but if it's teething this may go on for quite some time!!

Keep up the good work.

Oh Lily, she is such an adorable little girl! I loved when my babies were all clingy, that was the best part of being a mom, just loving them and having them know you were there security. I hope she is feeling much better.
