Jemimah Appleby III

This is Jemimah Appleby III, and Sophia loves her to bits! Seriously. Jemimah is often held tightly to Sophia’s little breast whilst Sophia sighs with happiness.

Blankie

Sophia loves Jemimah about as much as she loves Blankie. Blankie is Sophia’s ‘going to sleep’ blanket. It’s a beautiful little blanket – made of soft wool and in such lovely colours. Sophia has had it since she was a little sprogling. It was a gift from a dear friend in celebration of Sophia’s arrival. (My mother tells me I had a blue blanket when I was a little person… apparently I, very stubbornly, gave up said blue blanket when I was about five. I wonder if Sophia will do the same… She’s very attached to Blankie, you see.)

Oh! Did I tell you that Sophia is walking? (Actually, it’s more of a wobble.)

It’s a beautiful sight to to see… little Sophia with Blankie clutched in one hand and Jemimah in the other… waddling down the hallway… Sophia smiling from ear to ear. It makes my heart turn to mush, it does.
