Toofie-peg #1 and 2

Tooth number one made it's appearance on the eve of 22 January 2011 at the age of 7 months old.  It is the tradition in our family to make pancakes to celebrate the occasion but since I got a fab new waffle machine for Christmas I'm going to make waffles sometime in the next few weeks (we're rather busy at the mo - more details on this later).  The only teething sign we noticed was that Jane was playing with her tongue on her lower gum a lot so when we checked there it was.

I had quite a disturbed night last night with Rosebud waking up quite often for comfort and breastfeeding and this morning we noticed tooth number 2 is out.  My little Rosebud is getting so big!

Rosebud's first holiday!

We went camping before this but I'll record this as her first proper holiday (cause let's face it, camping is rather uncomfortable when you're a baby... and a Mommy) :-)

We went to Paternoster on the West Coast and stayed in a cottage with Jude, Gro and Frida (Jane's Uncle, Aunt and 4 month old cousin) and Rachel and Andrea (Aunt and Uncle).

She LOVED relaxing on the sunbeds on the porch overlooking the beach...

There were two bathrooms but both only had showers so Rosebud had to 'bath' in the washbasin.  I had to bath her twice almost every day because of all the sand.  At one stage she even had sand up her nose (on a very windy day).

Rosebud on the beach for the first time...

Picking up her very first shell!  I kept it and put it in her memory box :-)

Exploring the sand...

What fun!!!

My little Rosebud

Rosebud is 7 months old...

She's sitting very well now and prevents herself from falling over while in the sitting position.  Today I put her in the sitting position on the mat in the lounge and when I looked again she was balancing on all fours :-)  Just two or three more months and we'll have to baby proof the house for a crawling baby :-)
