Quote of the day: 3 July

Thursday the wet nurse brought little Thérèse. She did nothing but laugh. She especially liked little Céline, who made her scream with laughter. You could say she already wants to play. That will come soon. She holds herself up on her little legs, stiff as a post, and I think she’s going to start walking early.

Now she’s eating well, and I assure you she finds my porridge good! I made a lot on Thursday so little Céline could also have some, but Thérèse didn’t think it was too much. All that was left was the part stuck to the pot.

We decided that we won’t go to see her until next month when you’re here. We don’t want to have that pleasure without Pauline…. I wouldn’t be able to go so long without seeing the baby, but the wet nurse brings her to me on Thursdays.

Your father just told me to give you a big hug for him. He’s leaving to go fishing, his favorite pastime.
