05:45am. Staggering downstairs this morning I saw my 7 year old, Evie, was up early as is usual in this house. She’s pretty good though, entertains herself until she gets hungry, which is usually about two hours later.
Thank God for the Nintendo DS. I think that when mothers leave hospital they should issue these devices as standard. I love the way her face is lit up in this image. You can just make out the dog on the floor at the bottom of the frame. Fred tends to gravitate to the rooms that have humans in them. It was nice that he was with her whilst the rest of the house slumbers. Normally I need four cups of coffee before I can form a coherent sentence but fortunately I can take pictures in my sleep.
