he’s getting bigger now. 2 weeks and a day. the world is getting safer by the minute, and it’s ok to investigate new things, to smell, to feel, and to taste. to wonder. he is vulnerable, but tough, unexperienced but a fast learner, soft but with an edge, sceptical but curious. feet are more steady, and running around is easier. mum’s not chasing so much anymore, because she knows, it will be ok, he will be ok. he is here to stay.
