Been away and missed my baby

Well she's not a baby, she's such a little lady, it took my breath away when I saw her again for the first time in days. We went to New York and left her in the care of her grandparents. Couldn't wait to pick her up and as I sprung into the room I just stopped in my tracks as this little girl in front of me with her long hair in a pony tail. She looked fabulous, so grown up and so, so beautiful.

Her reaction to us was delicious. Lots of kisses and huge cuddles and she kept saying 'daddy, dadddy, look daddy - mummy' and then she'd point daddy out to me as well! She sat astride me, put my face in her hands and snogged the face off me!!!! She kept saying 'Allo dadddieeeee' and then cracking up laughing, she didn't quite know what to do with herself, very funny, very cute.

She's been doing lots of pulling to stand this week, some of which I've witnessed today, on the back of the sofa, lots of crawling, climbing up & down off the sofa and just seems to have really grown up so much is 5 days.

Bless What a little cutie xxx

RTKangaMummy Tue 01-Feb-05 18:49:54

Ahhhh that is lovely

ThomCat Tue 01-Feb-05 18:53:24

NY was bloody fab Twigglett, colder than I could have believed but sunny as well so lovely. I actually put on a pair of ice skates and went skating in central park. I was CRAP, but i let go of the side and went round 3 times, fell flat on my back and made my very achy legs even more achy but loved it. Spent a fortune, bought a v expensive pair of boots, actually make that 2 pairs, a pair of shiny silver trainers, about 12 tops, 3 trousers, loads of mac and Aveda products and we spoilt ourselves rotton, it was brilliant

The best thing about going away is coming home though, esp when you leave such a large part of you behind. Having said that she is now trying to draw on me with her carrot sticks that have been dipped in cream cheese! I missed her like mad but there is a lot to be said for some child free time

Sounds fab TC - glad you had a wonderful grown up (?) time and what a lovely greeting from your gorgeous babe .

Potty1 Tue 01-Feb-05 21:28:01

Aaaawwww absence makes the heart grow fonder TC - glad that you enjoyed NY

JakB Tue 01-Feb-05 21:56:20

Ah, TC, how absolutely wonderful. So glad you had such a brilliant time. And that Lottie was obviously so thrilled to have you back. I have got to meet this child, she sounds just so delectable...

Merlot Tue 01-Feb-05 22:33:38

Glad you had a great time TC and lovely to come home to such a welcome from your little lady!

Have you seen the beautiful video clip thread here , it was probably posted while you were away, but is truly inspiring and put me in mind of your positive outlook and how much that can achieve

aloha Tue 01-Feb-05 22:37:26

Wow! She's talking so much more now isn't she? Lovely to have such a nice welcome home. Did the underwear do the trick, do you think?

Angeliz Tue 01-Feb-05 22:41:38

Ah bless+

Thanks for that link Merlot - you are lovely.

Aloha - LOL - don't know about the underwear but hopefully childfree time in a hotel did the trick, if it didn't it won't be through lack or trying !!!!!!!!!!! Ha haaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!

anniebear Wed 02-Feb-05 21:27:34

Hope you had a great time


JaysMum Wed 02-Feb-05 23:18:17

Distance really does make the heart grow fonder....
So Glad you had a great time.
at the "trying"

eidsvold Thu 03-Feb-05 02:37:11

hope to hear some news trying
if it is any consolation - we started trying last Feb thinking it would take us old folk some time and it happened first time...

Oh just got the latest dsa mag and saw your pic and little article in there. brilliant

ThomCat Thu 03-Feb-05 10:30:44

Thanks edisvold. Can't wait to have a number 2.
Have no idea what article & pic you mean in the DSA mag, haven't done anything for them so.... i'll wait to see what turns up in the post.
Hope all is well with you and your little angels.
TC x

eidsvold Thu 03-Feb-05 12:08:16

ohh it is the pic from your sky dive...

ThomCat Thu 03-Feb-05 12:16:17

oh i see, that makes sense now.
Funny you should mention this though today, the DSA just emailed me and asked if they could use a pic of Lottie in an Ad they are running!

sinclair Thu 03-Feb-05 12:40:31

Hi TC welcome back (was wondering where you were) we missed you but since it was all for a good cause...keep us all posted. So envy you a bit of child-free pampering and how lovely to come back and see real changes in Lottie - bless the little cherub!

rivers Thu 03-Feb-05 21:18:36

Hi TC, Welcome back and glad you had a good time! Lottie sounds so cute and that was a great welcome from her!!
