This week’s photo sent me travelling back in time:
How well I remember that utter fascination with those tiny limbs and their perfection, the wonder that this gorgeous new person had come from our flesh. It’s just as well that hormones and instincts cause this total infatuation with infant offspring, otherwise none of us would ever survive the constant disruption of bringing a new person into the world: I met an old friend last week whose first child has just turned 3 months old: little Molly was completely gorgeous and both parents did an awfully good impression of people who weren’t totally off their heads with sleep deprivation. Good luck with it all, L!

My smallest one will be three shortly and I continue to marvel at his big brown eyes and tiny little hands. You are right kids do get you. Just a simple smile and something in me melts.
Oh the tiny feet picture. My kid is now so big that he has bigger hands and feet than me, but I remember when his little hands were so small and warm and sticky in mine. They are still warm and sticky, but now they are like giant puppy paws.
