9 weeks old, giggling gertie!
Mum made an interesting comment to George today as we walked through the Botanic Gardens. George reached out to grab a rose but got grazed by a thorn. Mum said to him ' Roses are very beautiful but you must be careful as they can scratch you'... it made me think about Rosa and the many sides we have seen of her so far. She is incredibly beautiful in our eyes... when she smiles her eyes make your heart hurt. Then hours later we can see the darker side to her, miss grumpy. It will be interesting to see how her personality develops.
When George was born, my friend Arafelle did an astrological birth chart for George based on the time and place where he was born. On rereading the chart now 2.5 years on it is amazingly accurate. Explains his little personality in amazing accuracy. Arafelle kindly did a chart for Rosa also and it does paint her to be a child of fiery nature. Wish us luck!
She is truely a blessing though. We have our rough days but most of the time she is soooo good. We went up to Waipu for Auckland Anniversary Weekend to see Oma and Opa. She was SUCH a good baby and slept through the night on the first night (just as well cause Mama had had a couple of vinos). She charmed everyone with her big smiles and chatty baby noises.
