Glas-GO!! Roslyn and her Daddy headed into town with me to check out some of the games action in the flesh.
How are you liking that Glasgow 2014 vest she’s got on? Yeah?
I totally made that.
The girl loves standing up, she smiles the whole time!
Turns out train journeys with babies are excellent photo shoot opportunities.
This girl is a champion. Never mind the athletes, she deserves all the medals going for being so good. Well trodden ground for Stuart and I recently is discussions of how we would have never been doing x,y,z when sandy was her age.
“We’d never have made it out the door this morning if this was sandy”
“We would have gone home crying if this was when sandy was little”
“We wouldn’t have even bought tickets when sandy was born”
I know some of it is because it’s our second time out and because my mental state is soooo much better, but this little girl is an angel. I mean it. She sleeps, she feeds, she kicks about and grins whenever she sees anyone interested in her. She is Perfection.
We had a great time at our first commonwealth event. We hit up the exhibition centre games area. Such a gorgeous day again, not a cloud in the sky, and so many lovely people about. Glasgow really feels like a fabulous place to live near just now.
We got to the auditorium and had a little chill out while waiting for the doors.
Love that my sling is a comfy blanket for her too.
We headed in and just before it started Clyde arrived for a picture with us!
Then the athletes came out to typical macho man music… And hilariously they then did a procession of the judges to the tune of I’m sexy and I know it. Hehehe.
So here is our baby bear with men lifting big heavy things. I can’t say I saw a large amount of the actual event though because Roslyn was rather fussy. It was in the evening so I can’t blame her. She’s such a doll all day she’s entitled to her few hours fussing of a night. The problem was that it went deadly quiet while the weightlifters prepared, then as they lifted the crowd roared. She couldn’t sleep through the intense change in volume poor love.
So I headed to the foyer with her where she promptly zonked out and I chatted to passers by about her. You never get so much attention as when you have a little baby, especially one on your person.
Meanwhile, in the auditorium…
She only had a catnap so I nipped back in for the medals ceremony which was great to see. A piper came out and then the medals were awarded and the flags raised.
All in all a fab night. We got home at 11 which is LATE for me these days. Usually Roslyn and I are all zzz by half 9 latest! Anyway, we’ve more fun to come next week with the hockey which I can’t wait for! Yay!
