This is Evelyn.
She has the biggest gummy grin and the smooshiest cheeks. She likes cuddles, her siblings, nectarines, boobies and attention. She is pretty much the cure for everything that ails you (except PPD – but we’ve already told that story). I applied Evelyn to the angry six year old and five minutes later, it was all giggling and kisses. I applied to her to Frogpondsrock who had just been told that she is a massive troll online [Digression: I KNOW. How dare they. I have lots of thoughts and feels about this] and it made things better. Or at least more baby smile filled.
She’s pretty amazing.
We have struggles still, yes. Everyone tells me how good she looks and I know that. She is fat and smooshy and adorable. She does not look sick, or weird, or like she struggles with mobility. But that’s okay. We see the physiotherapist this week for a comprehensive development assessment. That should be interesting.
I spend a lot of time just kissing her and enjoying the fact that she is small and smooshy and likes to snuggle with me. Also that she doesn’t have pokey elbows or knees, like her siblings.
Evelyn! A cure for all your ills. Even if she is a bit worried about the clicky sound that the camera makes.
PS, my Evelyn can only be borrowed. If you want a smooshy baby, you’ll have to procure your own.
