You started to wake up in the night.
Tuesday, 28 June 2011
You were getting more and more mobile all the time.
And we would go to get you after a nap,
only to find you had moved all the way up the crib,
or had turned around so your feet were sticking out.
We had spent the months leading up to your arrival getting everything ready
for you so that you would feel at home.
Despite the fact that all you really needed was milk, nappies and lots of cuddles,
we wanted you to have the best we could give you.
Daddy rung Mummy from home before coming to the hospital.
He was worried that the ward was a long way from the car
and whether he should bring your pushchair so you would be safer.
He was worried that it was really cold out and that you might need an extra blanket.
He was worried.
He was a parent.
