Send in the Clowns

Lucy is currently fascinated by almost anything. She is unbelievably nosey for an 11-week-old baby and wants to know everything that’s going on. It’s also her downfall, because she never wants to go to sleep if there’s something that looks interesting around her.

One thing which regularly grabs her attention for significant lengths of time is the clown letter-shapes we’ve stuck on her door.


For some reason, she will rest on my shoulder, staring at them. Occasionally, she will make a grab towards them. Now they’re quite nicely made and slightly unusual, but surely everything for a small baby is unusual? Sometimes I wonder why, but at others I am thankful for them: it usually distracts her from crying when she needs feeding for long enough to get a bottle made up.
