Last Sunday we were shopping and my baby angel had been sitting in her pram for some time. Then she suddenly looked at me and raised her arms. It was the sweetest thing! She was clearly asking to be picked up, so I obviously swept her up in my arms with kisses and cuddles.

She now raises her arms everytime she wants to be picked up and also when I say, “Kom, liefie!” (Come, sweetie!).

Simple as this gesture may be, it has taken the communication between us to a lovely new level.

(Things are hectic on my side and I’m trying to make some progress with my studies – sorry for neglecting my blog.)
