  1. She’s adorable Margaret, and what a lovely photograph capturing the curiosity of a young child. x

      1. A friend once said to me, when my health was first deteriorating and I was concerned about my future life “I’m not worried about you – you have intellect, curiosity and a sense of humour”!

      2. This morning I have just been for a rough terrain explore at 7am, the light was beautiful, the temperature cool. Now it’s rising sharpish not happy

  2. Hasn’t she just! I had hoped it was Zoe at the seaside in your previous post. There she was curiously exploring the rock pools and here she is still curious, still exploring. Just wonderful, Margaret. What a joy! This must have been a very special week for you and Malcolm 😊

  3. Gosh – how time flies! So happy to see her playing with stones in water. It’s interesting to a child how their colours change when they get wet and how much duller they are when they dry. I remember my fascination with that well.

    1. Now she’s such a bundle of inquisitive energy, it’s hard to remember just how vulnerable she – and her mum – were. The care they received from the NHS was second to none.

  4. Such a worry in the beginning, but she’s growing up nicely. My little one in Australia started off under similar circumstances as he stopped growing at 28 weeks. Now he is a very inquisitive and lively 6 year old, a little on the small side for his age, but he has the most wonderful vivid imagination! Thank goodness that these babies have a good chance of survival now.

    1. Indeed. I read some of the stories posted on the unit at the hospital – and some were truly astonishing tales of survival against the odds – and then doing so well later on. Hooray for modern medicine – and in the UK, the NHS. So glad your grandson too is progressing so well.

  5. What a delightful child. She makes our Jasper at 34 weeks and 1.65 kg look like a giant. It’s an emotional time – you go from thrilled to terrified and back again in seconds. Ps. Still having problems with this platform. I read and enjoy all your input but I can’t always respond and never from my phone.

    1. Yes – I wouldn’t want those early days back again – it’s good that Jasper too is healthy. Sorry about the WordPress problems. They seem to be rife at the moment, but your problem is not one I’ve had – so far – and I’ve got a very bargain basement phone. Let me know if it goes on and I’ll see what I can find out.
