|Our room for the weekend|
Sandy and I have been to similar get ups before, with times of teaching, worship and just some free time to hang out with people and thankfully we had gone with the mindset that it would be very different to how it had been before because, we had Naomi, who wouldn't be willing to wait for getting her nappy changed or being fed or whatever the thing she wanted to cry about was. She was also no more likely to sleep through the night, although the good thing about her being so young is that only being able to see about 12" in front of her, her Moses basket looks the same regardless of what room it is in and feeding works much the same whether you are on the Welsh/English border or in the heart of the East Midlands!
|I attempt to do something (can't remember what) while Naomi chills out!|
Naomi is also still young enough that she doesn't really mind who is cuddling her, so the weekend away was great for her as there were lots of people who wanted a cuddle and Naomi loves having some arms wrapped around her, it seemed to be a mutually beneficial situation for most people! Although Sandy and Naomi were having a lovely cuddle when we got this photo
At one point Sandy took Naomi in her sling and they went off on a walk, it is the longest that she and I have ever been separated and I think it was more stressful for me than her. I tried not to snatch her back when sandy returned but I really did miss her terribly, I think it was good for me to let her be off with her Dad though and good for him to get to have that time with her. The walk took them just over the Welsh border, so although I have never been in Wales, Naomi now has!
|This photo only to prove that Daddy is awesome and takes his share of the nasty jobs too!!|
