One thing is for sure; from the day you give birth you will never have a bored moment again. Nowadays our TV set is more of a modern art installation than something we actually sit down to and watch. Cole is so entertaining and I would never have believed it if someone had told me a few years ago how content I could be happily gazing at him for hours on end, stroking his downy hair and holding his tiny hand in mine. Yes I most definitely have been bitten by the baby bug and I must warn you its highly infectious – Cole’s daddy, grandparents, aunts and uncles have all been affected in a similar way!’
