This weekend Fred’s mum kindly let me invade her lovely house with a very girly collection of friends and family (well a couple of boys snuck in, but were counted as honorary girls I think). These also including Smidget’s Aston Cousin Luke, who has lent Smidget his baby wet suit (so cute) and actual cousin Wriggler (due in November). Large amounts of tea and cake were consumed, all very tame by past birthday standards but lovely to see everyone, even if it was a bit scary to say goodbye knowing I won’t see most of them again until after Smidget arrives!
Oh and Smidget performed very well, producing some good belly acrobatics to entertain (or perhaps horrify) the girls!
We staggered home on the train on Sunday with a moses basket piled high with pressies including some lovely home made things (thank you Mums and Aunties) and sprouting some shiny helium balloons. I think it’s fair to say we draw a few quizzical looks!
