It's Mother's Day and the neat little bump of last year has turned into a beautiful baby girl who loves her Mama and so today was very very special. Little miss only woke up once in the night which was a real treat and then when she'd had her morning feed and was snoozing in our bed with Daddy I discovered that she'd been hiding little parcels in the bottom of her sleeping bag.
Now Kitty clearly knows her Mama well because the parcels had delicious chocolates and she'd even 'signed' her card - it was perfect.
My parents, sister and her hubby came up for the weekend so we all met up for church this morning and then went out to lunch. Yesterday we all met up at Upton House to enjoy the sunny weather and the gorgeous gardens.
Grannie enjoyed pushing the buggy (as long as it wasn't going up the crazy steep hill)
Grandpa liked pulling faces and making Kitty giggle
Auntie Zee brought her camera to really accentuate the mamarazzi experience
And she and Kitty discussed thumb sucking techniques.
Kitty is very like her Dad but has just the smidge of a look of her auntie as well, so it's always fun to see them together, and they have each other in stitches most of the time.
It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon, even if we couldn't go around the house because of a power cut.
My cheerful little joy, you made me so happy when you made me a Mummy and I love you. This was our first mother's day together and I'm going to treasure each and every one of the ones to come.
