No! Not that one! This is about me totally "gaga" over the latest addition to our family! On the 1st October at 10.15am little Sophie entered the world much to the joy of her mummy and daddy (Louise and Dan) and the absolute delight of her great "auntie Anne"! Big smiles all round
Can I just say a big thanks to all of you who responded to my last blog with well wishes and also a big well done to those of you who guessed the names correctly? Apologies for the delaying getting back to you but I've been spinning around on cloud nine :)
I am writing this blog sitting in Louise's living room watching little Sophie get ready for her afternoon nap. If I was to tell you that she is just like a little doll, utterly beautiful and a delight to behold, I guess you could accuse me of being slightly biased. Well you'd be right!
Check out all the lovely photos, I have loads but perhaps just a few at this point in time will suffice. (I am very aware that this doting auntie could quite easily go into overkill here!) This little lady's full title is Sophie Anne-Marie – Anne after my mum and I, and Marie after my sister.
My only complaint is how far away they are – Nottingham! Although it's only a couple of hours or so drive away, that's a loss of valuable cuddling time! I tell you what though, it may be nearly 17 years since I last did the whole baby thing, but it does indeed all come flooding back in an instant!
There is an up side to this distance though, as it means when I visit I get to stay for longer periods. As a result, the men in my life are having to fend for themselves for a few days as little Sophie and I get acquainted, but I'm sure they'll cope!
I promise more regular contact by way of blogs and responses as things settle down, but in the meantime I will leave you with the words of Mary Popppins, Sophie truly is "practically perfect in every way"!
Take care you lovely lot!
