Sunday Morning Happy

Given that I haven't had more than 3 quiet hours to myself for several weeks, I had slightly mixed feelings about my daughter arriving with baby Harriet for an extended weekend, Harriet's daddy joining us for a two-day visit. It's been just a bit too busy around here, and it's very tough to ignore baby gurgles in favour of marking papers.

But the papers will get done, and the fatigue seems persistent no matter what. Meanwhile, as Paul served us a lovely paella last night, my daughter adhered to a little one's bedtime routine and my sink became a bathtub. Amazing how contagious is a Baby's Contentment. Thought I'd share the Happy. . .

Have to go now as I've just been delivered a still-warm-from-sleep Baby to Cuddle. . . .

  7. Baby skin - downy baby head - the smell of just-bathed or just-fed baby - lucky you! I will get my fill in the summer, but in the meantime .... thank you for sharing.

  8. She looks like a very happy baby. Love those fresh from the bath cuddles...
    snuggling is so soothing. I hope that you are able to catch up on some ZZZ's soon.
    It was a lovely day of sunshine too!

  9. Hi Mater, we are back from our hols and I'm sorry to read that you have had an especially rough week. Glad to see, though, that you have had some baby cuddles to lighten your heart. Take care.

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
