The Nanny

One of the many things I am thankful for is Ryan's nanny. It is a great comfort to know that he is safe and well-cared for while I'm busy at work. When I tell people that Ryan is cared for by a nanny, they will tell me that she must be very good because Ryan looks so healthy and happy.

I trust his nanny completely and she has been very good to Ryan. She is attentive and observant of his needs and habits. She knows what should be done and what should not. She is calm and concerned at the appropriate times.

In addition to the tangibles, I am so grateful to have found this lady because I can see that she loves Ryan to bits and her whole family, including her extended family, does too. It is as if he has a whole other family when he's not with us. She is always buying new clothes and toys for Ryan. Her nieces, who visit her often, love to play with Ryan. Her eldest daughter, Caroline, a really sweet person, is always snapping photos of Ryan and playing with him.

Here's something that Caroline gave us - it's a very tiny book that I can hang on my phone/bag and it has 20 photographs of Ryan inside. She ordered it from one of the shops in town. I think it's such a great memento.

These shots were taken in my office. That's the view from my office window.
