Updates on Victoria Lily Joy van den Broek, born 120705.

Tuesday, July 11, 2006


The new scheme of things is for Victoria to be awake more than James used to be in the day. Given the opportunity to have a nap in the morning - or in the afternoon - she generally scorns it in favour of seeing what everyone else is up to. Victoria now often prefers to sleep on her back (that's fine by me - at least she hasn't been compelled to lie like that all the time her skull was softest leaving her with a deformed head like many of her contemporaries.)
yesterday I was in Morrisons and the check-out lady (one of those commonly found in Woking, with head all wrapped up for religious purposes) commented that Victoria was such a lovely baby (and V. hadn't so much as looked at her - never mind flutter her eyes!). Another reminder to me that Victoria seems to have come pre-loaded with something irresistably special which complete strangers find attractive.
Yesterday was the first time that Victoria had something other than milk more than once in a day. We have a box of bananas (it was insantity to buy a box of bananas this time of the year....) which is suffering from the heat. Could be that V. will get mashed banana again today - twice.
