Moth's flight home was yesterday morning, so I walked to her hotel with Eva to have breakfast before she left. Eva was a fairly well behaved baby, but she did want to be held; this actually turned out to be very useful because I suddenly realised I hadn't taken any pictures of my Mum holding her. What was I thinking?!?! I got a couple of really nice pictures of the two of them, which made me very happy!
I was really sad to see Moth go, but that's the problem with moving to a foreign country isn't it? The very definition of it being foreign is that it's far away from home, and that sometimes sucks quite frankly.
On the other hand Eva is a little bit fractious at the moment, which I think is because she's hitting a developmental stage (yes, I have a book about that too. This one's called "The Wonder Weeks", and it apparently predicts these points in a baby's young life so you can brace for them. You can't avoid them, just be slighltly more mentally prepared.) Eva was really quite well behaved and snuggly whilst Moth was here, so that was actually pretty great timing in many ways.
I just hope that the next time Moth visits or we go home to England (I think it's Evalyn's home too, right?) it can be for longer, of course by then Eva will be a little bit older too, so she might be more aware of things. That would be lovely.
