Blurry image of Humuhumu in her red-and-white polka dot short-sleeve onesie and blue trackie bottoms, sitting on our bed and laughing.

Today was my last day with Humuhumu while I’m on maternity leave before she starts nursery full-time. I tried not to moon around too much. I succeeded some of the time.

It was a beautiful day, so this morning some friends came over to walk along the canal and then stayed for a cup of tea and a chat.

I gave Humuhumu her lunch and savoured her smiles and grabs at the spoon. Our nearest friends came over and picked us up to go to the Lickey Hills for a walk. We strolled around and enjoyed the sunshine, and then the mums got an ice cream. Each of the babies got to have tastes, but as I was having a chocolate ice lolly, Humuhumu wasn't allowed too much. She loved it and I don’t think it was just because the cold felt good on her sore gums (she’s teething).

The bloke came home a bit early to give her supper while I made ours. I gave Humuhumu her last bottle and then she went to bed to get her rest before the big day tomorrow.

I hope everything goes well, especially emotionally, for both her and you tomorrow!

And does she interact very well with the other babies?

Thank you! It did, although I spent a good hour on the first day in the campus cafe, hiding behind dark glasses and an enormous cup of coffee, pretending not to cry.

Yes, it would appear that she loves company! She was a happy little thing already and nursery seems to be enhancing that.

:D

Thank you! It did - for her, anyway. I spent a lot of it walking around worrying. And I picked her up fifteen minutes earlier than I said I would because I couldn't take it any more. But she's been three times for full days now and she seems to be loving it. :)
