Here we are again, at 7.23pm on a Tuesday, celebrating exactly four weeks of Tilly.
In fact, Tilly was so excited by the idea of being four weeks old, she decided not to take a single decent nap today. We finally got her to close her eyes about 6pm, and I'd promised Justin that I would not go in and wake her up with a flash by taking her photo at 7.23pm, but then little Tilly woke up on her own, just in time! I can see that she'll fit in perfectly with our photo-obsessed family!
And, for the first time, I didn't spend the whole day watching the clock and reminding myself of what I was doing at each point in time four weeks ago. It's finally okay to let the experience of labour move into the past now, I think, and focus on today's minutes of little toes in little socks.
