Sunday, 14 April 2013: Thirteen Days Old.
I accidentally poked Ayla in the eye with my finger yesterday, and I’ve never been more guilt ridden in all my life.
I’d been cradling her in my knees around 10am when her head flopped forward. I moved my fingers to catch her but instead I got her eye!
She didn’t cry and her eye seemed fine until about 5pm when it started to weep; I’ve been so worried since!
Everyone we’ve spoken to has said she’ll be fine, but I still have to keep reminding myself that she’s not the first baby ever to have been poked in the eye.
It’s definitely starting to look better now, but I’m still freaking out… Long night ahead methinks!
