Happy new year! I hope that 2007 brings better than best things for all of you!
Well, today I was reflecting on the passage of time. I was reading my journal from a year ago. Jamie was only six weeks old.
Here's my entry from this time 12 months ago:
I am so tired and depressed. Grandma has been helping me out. But I am so tired, Bunny. It’s not your fault. I love you to bits. But the breastfeeding problems on top of the colic. I just don’t know what to do!
And here's today's entry:
You rascal! You didn’t want to fall asleep tonight. You cried for ages when I put you to bed. In the end I came in and cuddled you for a while. But you didn’t want to sleep. You lifted your head up off my shoulder and started pointing.
First you stuck your finger in my ear; “Dis!, you cried”.
Then you grabbed the hair at the nape of my neck; “Dis!”.
Then you patted the hair on my fringe; “Dis!”.
Then you poked your finger up my nose; “Dis!”.
And, finally, to finish your repertoire, you poked my eye; “Dis!”.
I tried so hard to ignore you. But by the time you stuck your finger in my eye, I couldn’t help but giggle. You are learning well. Too well. Our lessons on hair, head, nose, mouth, eye and ear are coming along very well.
Life's good :D
