Backing Into Corners

'A' is on the move- backwards that is. She can get up on her knees and hands, but thus far has only figured out how to make it work backwards. I so enjoy seeing her making all the changes and, for some reason, am excited about her learning to crawl. I really don't know why, though, as I love the stage she is at and am not that eager to baby-proof the house! I guess it is just exciting to see 'A' learning about herself and the world. These days, she is starting to like butternut squash and sweet potatoes. Peas are not a hit. She also loves to choose cars out of Oliver's car container - this can keep her entertained forever. I'm sure the cars are not technically baby acceptable, but they are certainly large enough not to be choking hazards!

The newest superhero in town

This one has conquered the potty - yay! I'm so proud of O. I promised him a superhero costume when he filled out his sticker chart for potty-training. This occurred faster than I anticipated. I partially backed down on my word and only made him the cape. I am requiring further good behaviour for the next part of the costume. I'll post better photos of the cape later.

Xmas Stocking

This is an Amy Butler pattern. Looks simple to put together, but I found the assembly quite unusual (due to the fact that it is lined) and really important to follow the instructions step by step, which, thankfully, I was patient enough to do this time! As a sideline, when I went to Amy Butler's website, I discovered that she has a new line of fabric out (here)- love the Kasbah!

A is 6 months old!

 Amelie's thoughts on rice cereal:

We eventually gave up (after a week) and tried oat cereal, which she likes!
