Baby steps

January 19, 2013

London in the snowSo we’ve had quite a week! There were lots of things I was going to write about in this post.

Like how we’re getting on so much better following Eliza’s first full three days at nursery (once she’s distracted she really likes it, once I’m distracted I’m not quite as emotional as I was last week).

Or about my new job (I’m really enjoying it).

Or even the snow (we’ve had loads in London).

But instead, Eliza eclipsed all of that news today by taking her first proper, all-by-herself steps. We were surprised, delighted, utterly amazed. We were also in the pub planning her joint first birthday party, which will be a funny detail to recount in years to come. It was surprisingly emotional; that’s our baby, our tiny amazing baby I grew inside me for nine months. So exciting.

Have a good weekend x.

    Wow, that must be very exciting! Hope Elizas enjoyed the snow and glad to hear she’s settled into nursery. We’re starting settling in visits next week so it’s good to hear positive stories!

    Fantastic! First steps are a huge milestone. Love that Eliza took them in a pub. Definitely a story to recount in the future.

      It did make me laugh – we were there planning her birthday party (again, in a pub – oh dear) x

      Thank you! I know, I’ll be constantly running after her and retrieving her from where she shouldn’t be. Lots of fun though x
