Amelia in Red

Amelia looked lovely today. She was wearing red cord trousers and her new, japanese-style wrap top. I also put her in some new red shoes and she looked adorable. I must try and get a photograph of her tomorrow (I managed not to get her too covered in pureed pumkin and potato this evening).

I took Amelia to the NCT coffee group this afternoon. She had rather a nice time, I think, as did I.

The fabric for Barnaby's fish costume turned up this morning. I will start cutting out the pattern next week. I am hoping that the foam will arrive on Friday.

Barnaby had a go at feeding Amelia this evening, which makes it all the more remarkable that she didn't end up plastered in runny-pumpkin!

The expensive cradle-cap oil from "Green Baby" seems to have done the trick. Of course, I am now wondering whether common or garden olive oil would have had the same effect. But, it felt a bit weird slathering her scalp in olive oil. Plus the smell, of course.

I have been feeling a bit low and short-tempered this evening. I think I'm tired. I did the unthnkable this evening. Amelia woke up crying and I'd tried and tried to get her back to sleep. In the end, I just thought, b***er it and brought her downstairs for a spell. Bad move, I know, but I thought it preferable to me being upstairs with her feeling more and more resentful or just letting her cry herself silly, which she had also done for a bit. So, I'm off to bed. It's 10:18. I need to get Amelia back to bed again. I do hope I haven't set a precident.
