"You really do take after your Daddy," Sook muttered as she bounced her pink-faced little baby, the grizzly little creature having woken her up three times in the night for a feed. Sook had made sure to read all the books as much as she could stand but there was really nothing quite like practical experience. She wasn't really that bad as a baby, as she knew them to be from looking after Izzy's twins, but when she got grumpy, boy did she get grumpy.
It was the late morning and she was alternating between soothing Elli and trying to distract her with her numerous toys. She'd waken a walk in the back yard with her shielded from the sun but it hadn't much worked. Now getting desperate, Sook was kneeling in front of the window seat in the living room with Elli on her back.
"That's better ain't it, my beautiful girl?" Sook beamed as Elli seemed to settle. "Now Mama knows what you like, doesn't see? Everybody's undivided attention." Elli peered up at her with big blue eyes and yawned widely, her tiny arms flailing. "I'm gonna love the year or so before you learn to talk cos you're gonna be a little madam when you're older, ain't you?" she chuckled and reached for the swaddling blanket by her knees. "Mama loves you, Elli."
