OK, two more..

We bathed her today, that was cool. I changed lots of nappies too. Don't know about you but it doesn't smell that bad. Maybe it gets worse, maybe it just doesn't stink on your own kid.

Thank you for your comments and wishes, you can tell that I'm proud as punch and eager to show off, thanks for giving me that pleasure!

Say, "I love my Daddy." Come on, you can do it! "I.. Love.. Daddy. Dad-dee.. Dad.. oh forget it." Say, Daddy has lots of freckles.. Good girl!"

The most amazing women in the world.

Anna Elizabeth Guille Smart and Sophie Maria Guille Smart.

Guille (Pron: GILL) is a second middle name and all of Anna's family have it, even the blokes. Maria is a tribute to Marian Smart, my mother who died 20 years ago, and Mary Smart, her mother, my Grandmother, who along with my Grandad, brought me up.

I really believe that a name is more than just something to call you by or address your bills to. A name is something to belong to, saying where you've come from, as well as who you are.
