I can't believe I'm actually typing 8 months. It's going too fast. Anna is such a delight and easy. Having a brother and sister help but usually she is with me in the sling or next to me. She's just started to shuffle on her bottom so let the fun begin! Oh and just for recording notes purposes she said "dada" and "mama" the latter when crying, arms outstretched.
February has been so wet and windy but at least the house didn't freeze over like last year and previous years. There have been meltdowns, giggling, camping infront of the fire, late night playing, tears, baking, laughing, illnesses, arguing ,drawing and discovering. Most of these occurred indoors too.
We took full advantage of the rare sight of the sun on Sunday morning and also what later became apparent the rare occasion of 5 healthy people at the same time if only for a few hours. Because literally within an hour of returning home I was hit with the dreaded stomach bug. But I'm thankful we had a lovely walk and thankful I never used the stomach cramp tablets given to me during pregnancy. They've definately come in handy now. We're hoping for more beautiful sunny days. I say this as it pours down with rain.
