And what a grumpy little Miss she was! She would not let other people hold her, and would cry if mum or dad wasn’t there. That made it very difficult to get party things sorted. The grandparents were supposed to be there to take her off our hands while we prepared, but they got a little sidetracked with sight-seeing and went on a cruise around the harbour, not returning until after 1 (the party began at 12 and they also thought it wasn’t until later in the afternoon).
For some reason Abby’s been extremely clingy these last few days, and will cry at things that normally don’t bother her (like leaving her to play). I’m guessing her chest infection, combined with teething and the large number of people around have something to do with it.
Anyway, at least mum got the party she wanted for her baby and caught up with people she hadn’t seen for ages (I didn’t spend as much time as I wanted with everyone, so apologies).
Abby enjoyed her presents, and loved the cheerios and chippies. The cake was yummy, even Abby got to have some.
Thankfully the weather was summery enough for people to be outside – even too hot for most of the day, but the main point is that it didn’t rain. Abby wore a cute gingham dress that grandpa picked out while in Sydney.
Lots of work, but lots of fun. Maybe next year she’ll be a bit more social! And I’ll be able to drink!!
