oh what a beautiful sound

May 26th, 2006 at 7:12 pm by michelle

at lunch today i sat while both my girls fed themselves blueberries and cheese slices. now for tea its blue berries veggie sausage rolls (jo) and marmite toast (for soph) . and now sophie is smacking her little lips as she eats.

we have had a huge improvement in soph since we started bottle feeding her on mon – she is down to just 2 breastfeeds a day and is thriving, slept through 3 out of 4 nights (only about 10 times in her life!) and is so much more energetic. even her head seems to have changed shape and filled out -the poor child seems to have been hungry and thirsty for along time – thank god for miracles.

gill you will be pleased to know she even stayed in a crawl position for a little while on her own 8)

    lack of capitals and general sentence structure are the giveaway ben;)

    i once told my english teacher that ‘i dont do sentences’ which she and my class mates found surprisingly amusing. personally i think that she was still harboring bad feelings towards me for taking her star english pupil’s mind off english (back when she taught james at selborne)(james inserts the possesive apostrophe out of need;)

    I guess little girls are like middle aged men – give them the bottle and they fill out, sleep through the night….although if one extends the analogy you coulod run into hot water…;-)

    ja, i was a little confused, but hey! good to hear your voice, Michelle… great to hear about soph’s progress, and you feeling the benefits too.
    i must say, i get a little lazy with capitals too, especially when i’m tired. you guessed it. we’re adding drugs to ant’s bottle at the moment. works wonders. i’m think about doing the same for me…
