Looking after Léo
Meet Léo. He’s my filleul (godson), the second child of Sim’s brother Pierrick and his wife Nelly. Léo has a 3 year old brother, Evan. He’s 7 months old, weighs 9 kilos (Evan weighs 13 !), can sit, roll, scratch, pinch and headbutt !
Over the Christmas period, Léo has been passed around from family to family; all of his aunts, uncles, grandparents and even great-grandparents wanted to spend some time with him while Nelly was at work and Pierrick was off skiing with Evan !
Sim and I had our turn on Friday afternoon. After picking him up from Nelly’s sister, we took him to Sim’s mum and dad’s for a play, lunch and sleep – all those baby things. He was very agreeable, even though he’s teething – he got his first two teeth for Christmas – and let us drag him around, take photos of him and stick our fingers in his mouth to feel his new choppers.
Sim’s mum left us with a cheeky comment as she returned to work for the afternoon, while we were changing his nappy:
“It’ll be you two next, it’s important to get some experience !”
Yeah right !
