Sitting is SO EXCITING!!!

Jane is enjoy sitting so much.  She sat in her pram for the first time yesterday and loves it!  She used to always lie in her car chair which clips onto the pram.

And of course playing is just so much more fun...

My little Rosebud

Rosebud is 6 months old!

She is having so much fun now that she's starting to sit on her own.  She loves the new position of the play gym...

My brave girl reaching out for a toy (and she managed to keep her balance)...

At five and a half months Rosebud was ready to start solids.  She's been introduced to rice cereal, butternut, sweet potato, apple and banana and she welcomes all food with enthusiasm :)  Today her gums were  a bit itchy so when Andy and I were having some fruit for our morning snack I put some in her no-choke-mesh-snack holder and she loved sucking the juice out and feeling the soothing cold fruit on her gums.  Whoever invented these mesh food holders is a genius! I used to use one all the time for Andy as well until he could eat a chunk of food without choking.  This one is extra nice cause it comes with a lid that covers the mesh bag.

Happy half a year birthday Rosebud! :)

The Homescool Camp 2010 (Rosebud's First Holiday)

Every year our homeschool group has a camp for 3 days and this year Rosebud got to join in the fun for the first time.

It was so incredibly hot!  When we arrived there it was 36.5 degrees and the entire three days we were covered in sweat.  At one stage I had rosebud lying in her carry cot playing with a cool washcloth while the others were out swimming in the river.  But despite the heat we all had a marvelous time!

Rosebud and I standing on the same spot as the next photo when we came camping at the same place in 2007 when Andy was a year and 4 months old...

 Enjoying the great excitement of the outdoors while watching Daddy put up the tent...


Rosebud is sitting unsupported for longer everyday now.  I took this pic about 2 weeks ago when she was sitting for a few seconds at a time but this afternoon she sat for close to a minute :)


I sewed a Taggie (a little blanky with ribbon tags on) for Jane.  So I let her discover it for herself.





And then Daddy put it on as a hat to see if she would get it off by herself (which she did)...

What an adventure!
