heart + stomach

We interrupt this meme to bring you what may or may not become a regular feature: Abby Blogging!

The innermum having just had a bionic hip fitted, is in hospital and I have been recruited in to help the rents with their weekly babysitting schedule, which starts, as most days do, with breakfast.

The problem when you're hungry and there's Oatibix that you really want, is that sometimes one spoon isn't enough. This morning, for instance, Abby picked up one spoon in her left hand because it was closest, then proceeded to use her empty right hand to shovel Oatibix into her mouth. I put a spoon in it to avoid the resultant mess.

We would have gone swimming today, but I appear to have contracted the norovirus, which kind of sort of precludes that kind of thing. Still, having slept most of the afternoon (which is more than Abby did) I think I'm on the mend. Next week, that swimming pool is ours!

So that's a spoon in each hand, plus I see a third. Is that a spare?

That's mine. Because sometimes baby's hand-eye coordination is slower than her stomach.

Siobhan thinks that Abby is not only very cute, but has the right idea RE: multiple spoons. "But I think she might just be playing with them," she said, tolerantly.

Actually, you'd be surprised how little playing goes on about something as important as food.
