When she was learning to crawl, I was just learning how to walk again so it really is like we've done everything alongside each other. It's a unique bond, there's no other way to put it. 

We're like a little double act. We do everything together and I don't think we could be any closer.

I'm really proud of her and she seems to have really taken to school life. Cherry's a really confident little girl, probably because of how much time she's spent in adult company at such a young age.

She's really proud of her dad and there's no issue at all with the other children just because I'm a dwarf. I don't think she could have settled in any better than she has, she's a lovely girl and we're so proud of her."

Oh, what a lovely family and what a great story!
