I can't wait to hear the punchline

One of my favorite moments in the day is her early morning feed, the three of us in our pyjamas, Eloise lying like a warm loaf of bread in my lap satiated from her sleepy breakfast with the faint sounds of her father snoring next to us. She smiles the most during this span of 10 or so minutes. Little smiles as if she's remembering a joke someone told her that she doesn't think would be appropriate to share with the current company but can't stop thinking about and is trying desperately to not let her smile turn into a laughing guffaw.

And yes, sometimes it takes every fiber in my body to fight against the urge to suck those plump cheeks in my mouth and snack on them all day long.


  1. That is so sweet!

    I got the sling when C was a baby so it's like 3 years old. It was from a website that for the life of me I can not recall!

  2. Look at those eyes--you can tell she's taking everything in. If she does one day share the joke, do tell. ;-)
