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.

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. :)
