you know when you're first expecting a child, they tell you that you will feel a love for him/her that you've never experienced before. And it was true! When G arrived in our lives, we loved her, with the very core of our being... it sounds really corny, but i suppose it really is a different league of love. now the other thing that is equally strong, equally constant, and felt with the most acute and nagging pain, is that of guilt. Yup, nobody told me about that one! i never realised the sort of guilt that exists until i became a mother. it's the single other emotion other than love that is always present - the guilt of not spending enough time with them; not knowing if you've done enough for them; guilty for wanting to not spend 24hrs of your time with them; guilty for scolding them too harshly.... Last weekend, little K somehow rolled off the bed in the wee hours of the morning. I still keep having lots of horrible guilty 'what ifs' thoughts about it..... i think we never forget the experience, the very sound of her falling off is permanently etched in my memory. Luckily she is okay, although i'm sure we will be attributing all the little things that crop up to this incident.... wondering all the time if it had damaged her growth in any way.
Some pictures to share of the 2 over the weekend..... K has now started to sit unsupported! But she still falls over quite easily, so we're careful abt putting her upright. As always, she's always such an adorable smiley baby... she especially loves G doing the "on the knee" song and just laughs out loud when G plays with her.
There were tons of the kit leftover for lots more projects and LOs after my DT assignments for SOMO this month, so i created a few more for the family....
O and these arrived! Pure Merino Wool..... don't you just love the colours! :)
