to put this in context-dd2 is four weeks old! I am enjoying the changes and was feeling much happier about her getting bigger, more alert, less scrunched up, sleeping more. Then I was reminded about how mil ( who I adore and respect in most ways!) reacts as my children get bigger. There are frequent comically (usually) grief laden comments like "where's my baby gone?". Said this this morning! Reminded her that her baby was actually right in front of her! I know she's being light hearted but I don't really enjoy it.
