Auntie Babble

Today I met my niece, Elizabeth Hannah. I would be smiling at the camera, but I couldn't stop looking at her. She could do amazingly complex clever things like sneezing, moving her eyes around and possesing tiny, perfectly manicured fingernails. Who taught her how?
Considering her extended family have been umbilical-free for several decades between us, and have seen thousands of babies before, it seemed absurd that we were in such surprised, awed delight of her, while she seemed so cool about all these new adults, even though all she'd ever seen in her life is the inside of my sister.
She fell asleep in my arms.

Too too too sweet for words. Small babies. They are amazing... :-)And I'm reliably informed by my friends with babies that when they fall asleep in your arms it's cos they feel safe.. (doubly sweet eh)

Hello Miss Babble!

Lovely to see you last night and to see a proper pic of the little niece and you.

Well, I've found your blog now, so here's the link to mine:-

You will need to sign up to MySpace (it's free) if you want to leave comments etc, but I think you can pretty much look at everything before signing up. You can also see some of my friends and my pet snake in my friends list :)

See you soon

I miss you. I miss you. I miss you! What a cool story. I love the name Elizabeth too! Its my middle name. Are they going to call her that? Such an english lady she is, huh? Queenie. I do love babies when they go home to somewhere else.

You have to check my blog. I mentioned you! Without your permission. Is that plagerism?? ;-)

Love you lots sister. Enjoy R2!
