shes lovely and my daughter loves her too. her mum said she might need rocking to sleep and likes to be walked around. shes was fine , i put her in the crib and rocked her a little but she easily went off to sleep.

Would be nice having a tiny baby to look after during the day and then give it back at night for parents to do the sleepless nights. :D

I do love that infant cry. Before they start growing and it turns into a proper scream.

*clinches fists and closes eyes tight* I am not getting broody, I am not getting broody, I am not getting broody, I am not getting broody!

Lucky youxxxx

it looks like its going to be full time and permanent which im happy about. the mum comes back at lunch times to give her a feed and she said she is going back to school/ college to study and said she wants me to have her.

shes now having another little sleep after having a bottle of milk.
this will be real nice cause i will get to see her grow up.

I'm glad it is going so well.

Having them this young, they are very easy to mold into your ways.
