Christening Day

A week ago our beautiful baby girl was christened at the same church where Izzy was christened and where we got married last year. Izzy enjoyed dressing up for the occasion in her party dress, and insisted that she wear her christening bracelet as Clara was wearing her’s. She even made up a little song for her sister, “Happy Christening Day”, sung to the tune of Happy Birthday.

15 weeks: Part of the Family

Clara has been in our lives for 15 weeks now.

In that time we have quickly adjusted to life as a family of four. Izzy is still very happy about being a big sister – she is always hugging and kissing Clara and telling her how much she loves her. Yesterday, there was yet another amazing moment of sibling love when she she took Clara’s hand and said “I’m so happy that you are here”. And she genuinely is.

The feeling is mutual – Clara’s face lights up when Izzy is around. When Izzy goes to sit next to her on the floor she reaches out to hold onto her hand or clothes.

Colour Run 2014

Izzy took part in the Colour Run today to raise money for Hospice at Home. She ran/walked/was carried the 1km while being covered in paint – and she had a fantastic time! Clara and I were spectators but still ended up covered in some paint – not as much as Izzy though!

Water baby

Yesterday we took Clara swimming for the first time. I thought we would have a lot more tears as the water was freezing at first but she didn’t seem to mind. She seemed fairly indifferent to the whole thing to be honest. Until the wave machine came on – then she wasn’t happy. We got out at that point – mainly because I was struggling to keep hold of a crying baby and make sure I didn’t get knocked over in the waves at the same time.
