Elijah's first proper smile today

I thought at first that he was just about to fill his nappy, but no, it was a proper smile
Mr Bubble and I have talked about how strange and sad his first impressions of life must have been, lying in his plastic cot in a hospital room full of weeping MW's, doctors and his parents. Poor little thing, not exactly "the celebratory atmosphere" that the books suggest you get the champagne out for. And with sad parents around I've been worried he'll grow up with an innate "I'll get me coat" complex. Sorry if my (attempted) humour seems inappropriate but it gets me through some days.
After the grimness of Bo's cremation yesterday his smile has meant so much.

not at all inappropriate bubbles.. please enjoy elijah, and everything he does...he probably saved that smile especially to help you after that very difficult day.

Bo will never be forgotten.

First of very, very many. It cannot be wrong for him to grow up knowing that he had a darling brother who was much loved too, bubble
Well done young Elijah

lots more where that one came from

Aw Bubble... the wee star! Just to cheer Mummy and Daddy up on a sad sad day.

He's obviously very instinctive.... a very good and rare quality in a man!
