Yesterday saw Lilly's return and I have to admit that I was more than a little worried that she would not take kindly to being shunted backwards and forwards. A rebellion of mammoth proportions could have be on the horizon...but I should have know not to try to second guess our Lilly...you think I would have learned that by now!!
The little lady appeared with dad and slowly and solemnly looked around her...and when she spotted me...well that little face just cracked wide with a huge smile and a big laugh...she was happy to see me!! That kid sure knows how to reel me in!! Dad duly departed for work and Lilly and I decided to have a play, but what was this..Lilly was pale and quite listless by about 3.00pm. I thought she was just tired but no she couldn't settle and seemed just a tad crotchety. I started to wonder if she was missing dad, but if that was the case then she normally bites back!! Bedtime and bath time were half hearted attempts at smiles and yes, I was starting to get worried. But she settled and went to sleep without too much trouble...that really started me thinking then!!
Yesterday morning I was standing over the cot waiting for her to wake up...was she breathing? was everything OK? Well, eventually she woke up at 9.00am!! To a very worried grandma!! She was warm and by her nappy it was clear what the problem was, she had tummy trouble. She was a definite candidate for the bath..after she had been cleaned up a bit first..not to put too fine a point on it...she was plastered!! She must have felt dreadful...I did just sorting her out!! She still looked pale but the spirit was starting to revive and the bath got a few splashes and even a couple of giggles. But just as I made up my mind it could be a doctors visit job, she perked up and the big smiles returned. I could not believe the speed of her recovery...within a couple of hours she was so much better. The wicked grin was back and the arms were flapping like a bird about to take off...a sure sign in Lilly that something is sooo exciting!! Mind you she was not quite back to normal because she actually sat and let me cuddle her for about 5 minutes without twisting and trying to escape!! It was lovely..not that she was under the weather but that grandma had a cuddly little bundle, even if for a short while. By the evening she was back to normal and bouncing around everywhere!! Kids...they go down quick but come up even faster..I wish I could do that!!
