Thomas - in a Leading Role

Hello there, Folks! Just look at me
Wee Isabella's on my knee!
I'm brother to this tiny mite;
Dad, she wriggles - is this right?

She's warm and gentle, very small
Luckily she cannot crawl
As we face Mum's camera, Dad's on hand
This photo shoot cannot be planned.

Thomas, nearly four*, is proud
To show his sister to the crowd
With beaming smile, but grip unsure
He stops her falling on the floor!

At two weeks old, cute and petite
Confused, but cosy and replete
Isabella a zen message sends:
Brief moment captured by the lens...
