We have spent a great weekend up in York and I am staggered just how rewarding fatherhood is. Who cares if we find little time to go to the cinema or play computer games!
Lauren has certainly recovered from her three weeks of illness, her appetite is restored and she is extremely playful again.
It’s the playfulness that is so rewarding. Just sharing a bath yesterday was great fun. Lauren has started reaching for things that she wants rather than waiting for you to give her things. Playing chase the sponge (who needs expensive bath toys) had both of us in gales of laughter. Seeing her smile like that just warms the soul.
