I had some lovely moments while at my parents’ house today.
Dad is better. He is more energetic and alert, and I love hearing the love in his voice when he greets baby girl.
Mum is more relaxed, and just chilled. She made us a beautiful lunch and baby girl was celebrating the pasta made especially for her, by applauding and “hooray”-ing for about 5 excited minutes.
I love how baby girl is now one with nature, all barefoot on the grass. Jumping about, wanting to do a picnic every chance she gets, and running at high speed up and down the length of the yard.
Sitting under the trees, the four of us, in the leafy shade, just talking. Playing catch with baby girl. Laughing. Eating fruit. Talking about plums.
There was such calm and peace about the day. It was all about taking it easy, absorbing the moment, and enjoying what we have.
Soon it came time to go home, and baby girl and I departed with contented tummies and hearts.
And that’s the way it should always be, shouldn’t it?! 🙂
