the daffodil-yellow bonnet is the handiwork of a clever little knitter known as dover and madden. Unfortunately my knitting skills don't extend beyond a basic cast-on, knit, change colours, knit, cast-off repertoire. For now I'm getting quite good at tying up the bonnet and emphasising the importance of wearing such an adorable hat.
"She doesn't understand what you're saying," says Daniel.
"I know, but it makes me feel better if I explain it to her."
Poet rips the hat off again and laughs.
She's all tongue-sticking-out (see last photo) blush-cheeked, fired-up cuteness this week. She's ready to rumble and, quite literally, tumble her way around. Daniel and I, we've parented before, but this time it's a completely different ride.
