It seems that my method of holding a baby hasn't changed in the 40 years which separate these two pictures.
The one in colour shows me proudly holding Cleo, my son's new and much beloved baby daughter and the much older version shows the new daddy when he himself was brand new!
I was struck by how alike the two poses are... the angle of my head, the tilt of the shoulders, one hand holding a little leg and the other on the tummy... the broad smiles look pretty similar too!
Proud moments all round!
This is the nappy cake I made for her... I hope the contents will come in handy!
