Meeting my very special, newest and littlest friend Sophie for the first time. Isn’t she beautiful?! She’s the daughter of a good friend of mine and I was able to visit after work recently to meet her and cuddle for the first time. I used to work in childcare and adored it, but it’s been a long time now since I’ve held such a young baby and I wasn’t sure if I’d be too anxious to settle her or enjoy it. On the contrary, she fed and slept in my arms, and I settled into that deep quiet calm place inside myself. The perfect ending to a slightly frazzled day.
