As most parents gush about their babies i will do the same.

Give her a few weeks and she will walking holding on to furniture and we are thinking of enrolling her in swimming next term.

Esmee is still very cheeky and very sociable, and man what a wicked temper. She is also a Daddy's Girl but then what girl isn't!
