Update and Heartfelt Thanks from Lucy 1 July 2016
There are no words to express how thankful I am for the help and support we have received in the months since Ross' passing. I have been well and truly humbled by the love and generosity of people. I don't know how to thank or repay this kindness but I thought an update on Ross' gorgeous daughter Salote was due at least.
As you can see from the photos she's an incredibly happy child and blissfully unaware of the sadness that surrounded her entry into this world. I'm yet to see Ross or even myself in her looks however it's evident who her father is from her nature. She is a very sociable and makes friends wherever she goes, be it with adults, children or dogs! Her inquisitive nature is a delight to watch, not content just to play with a toy, she needs to see how it was made and what it is capable of doing!
This girl is very busy, she started crawling at 6 months and just this week at aged 10 months she has taken her first unassisted steps.
Words are yet to come but she babbles on quite happily. On the occasions when she does cry, it tends to be more in frustration that she is unable to do something rather than any other reason! I can see she's going to be an independent and highly spirited young lady.
I look forward to watching her grow and seeing Ross' traits shine through. I shall be sure to let her know how loved and well regarded her father was. His only wishes for her that we spoke of were that she be healthy, happy and kind. So far she is fulfilling his wishes and that makes me so happy.
Much love, Lucie xxx
