DH and I were having a lazy Sunday morning with breakfast in bed and our ‘babaliefie’ was sitting between us, playing with her toys and creating some of the usual random havoc and giggles. At some stage she was playing with my hand and putting my fingers in her mouth. I suddenly felt it! There was one very sharp little tooth in there. During the day, another little tooth joined the first one.

I’m savouring the last of those big (seemingly) toothless grins as my ‘liefietjie’ reaches another milestone.
