THE FIRST TWO YEARS
Fast forward a couple of years and my baby is almost two years old. She talks (oh boy does she talk), she's sweet, gentle, helpful, silly, hilarious and absolutely everything I could ever wish for her to be. She still prefers to play with one of us rather than on her own, so I still don't have time to write and I'm about to sell off the remainder of my vintage stock. Dinner is on the table at 6pm most nights and these days I get a lot of help form Ayana. She's obsessed, and I mean obsessed with knives and cutting! So it's her job to cut up the easy vegetables and also taste test sauces for me. She's my little shadow, where I go she goes. Sometimes we drive each other nuts, sometimes I admit I envy Nic leaving for work in the morning and having non- toddler conversations and I do crave a bit of alone time, but I'm fast realising that these are fleeting years and I don't want to miss them!
