BABY ROSA 14 WEEKS
I have been under the weather lately with a sore throat, high temperature, bad cough and general 'yuckiness' ~ I am feeling a little better now but not quite right yet . . .
This photo of Baby Rosa, received today, cheered me up.
She is a happy bunny these days and she smiles, squeals with delight and gurgles away very merrily. All is well provided she gets enough feed and boy she is a hungry little thing.
She has more than doubled her weight.
I remember last year receiving a Christmas card from my daughter and son-in-law saying something like, "Happy Christmas Dad, love from Selina, Matt and ?" I missed the significance of the '?' until Selina said, "Read it again, Dad!"
I jumped for joy.
Her Nana Sue, Matt's mother, was far more observant and she jumped for joy too, without any prompting.
Our lives are all the richer for having her and I can say I have never seen her mother happier in her whole life. It is wonderful to see her like that.
Peter loves her to bits already.
I am having him to look after on Thursday and Friday and I am going to decorate the Christmas tree with him, which I know he will enjoy. He helped his mum and dad at his house and as far as I can tell he has not knocked it over yet. I have bought some new fairy lights for the occasion.
This is the first time I have felt like putting the tree up since I lost Maria in April 2013. Life is much easier now.
