Baby Choo Point Oh!

Baby 2.0 arrived on Sunday. Normal service will resume soon. In the meantime…

…Thanks to several of my clients who told me to be sure to make sure the new baby gave our first son a present when he arrived in the world. I was doubtful this would be very meaningful since our oldest is only 22 months. But I took their advice to see what happened: hidden in baby’s blanket when he first met his big brother was a new choo choo (thank you ebay). I didn’t really think he’d be old enough to register, but what d’you know? The next day he was trying to unfold the new baby’s hands and saying ‘oh no – choo’ which we couldn’t really translate, but it was only later on when he tried to peek inside the baby gro and said ‘oh no, choo choo all gone’ that we twigged just how much had registered with him. They really do miss nothing. Except the big stuff obviously  – while I laboured and delivered at home (puffing like the little engine that could), the 22 month old snored through the whole thing, just in the next room!!

  1. Congratulations! Double trouble…

  2. Congratulations on the safe arrival of your new baby!
    Long-time reader, but first-time commenter (and parent of 2 little boys) – these little people really do miss nothing, and your eldest will probably remember the toy the baby gave him for a long time to come!

  3. I haven’t met you, but as a keen reader of the blog, hearty congratulations.

  4. Congratulations on the arrival of Baby 2.0!
    (is it an upgrade of Baby 1.0?)
