Yesterday Jemima was three
She completely charmed me by being so gently pleased that it was her birthday. She was thrilled to be allowed to wear her new necklace while we took Dan to school, she asked to watch Christmas Timmy Time and then begged to have a bath so she could play with the boat my parents gave her. The bath thing is basically a miracle – she’s never asked for a bath.
We played in beautiful sunshine with friends and family, we ate cake and Jemima opened the rest of her presents with beautiful enthusiasm and pleasure.
She is such a treasure, such a delight, such a wild one and such an astounding blessing. We’re so glad she’s our little girl.
