Babysitting

I've just got back from a week in Adelaide where I was staying with my friends Emily and Andy and their beautiful daughter Milly.

This was the first time that I have spent an extended amount of time with a friend's baby, only ever having exposure in 2/3 hour bursts before. Luckily Milly is gorgeous and I didn't have a single sleepless night while I was there. She was only sick on me once, but I can forgive her for that.

Everyone knows that looking after a baby is an awesome responsibility and when they can't speak, but are crying uncontrollably despite being fed, changed and having recently slept, it can be tough to work out what is wrong. However, what stuck me was the pressure having a baby puts on the relationship between mum and dad. It is not something I had considered much before.

Having been away for a week normal blogging will return. I have quite a few posts I want to catch up on from Melbourne and Adelaide. Plus a little project I am trying to get Clint to agree to work with me on.

  1. The smily baby is very cute!
    When nosing around blogs so many of the entries are depressing it is wonderful to come across one which leaves a smile on my face. I also laughed at Anonymous on Caminata :)
    I'm still smiling from the baby Milly as I press publish.
    Happy belated birthday.
