Sleeping late, for babies and keeping track.

1. This morning we can sleep late because Nick is working from home. I love to roll over and lie deep and warm under the covers with him at my back.

2. I take Alec to the stay and play session in the children's centre. I like to bring him to a place specifically designed with babies in mind, with all sorts of exciting toys that he doesn't have at home. He isn't impressed by the crocodile puppet, or the donkey, but a striped Muppety creature makes him grin like a loon.

3. Nick has been tracking Alec's growth on a graph of his own devising. He reports that our baby has increased his weight by 15 per cent in the last two months!
