Just back from visiting my daughter, son in law and granddaughter in London. E is growing fast... it's over four months since she was born, though being so premature she is effectively at about eleven weeks developmentally. I try to visit every month or so and I see huge differences in her each time. She is much more alert now, and beginning to make those endearing little vocalisations and facial expressions that show she is trying hard to communicate. It melts my heart to see her smile at her mum, looking so excited to see her.
I'm sure she will grow up very cultured.... We visited the V & A Museum to see a lovely exhibition of portraits by the renowned photographer Cecil Beaton, of the Queen and other members of the Royal Family, including his pictures of the Coronation in 1953. It is of course the Queen's Diamond (60th) Jubilee this year. Actually, E slept through the photos but she did enjoy the V&A's fabulous Café - which must have the most elegant baby-changing facilities in London!
