Girl oh girl, do I have a big catch-up to do! I've got so behind with your 365 project, Baby O. I've been remembering (just about) to take the photos. But not finding the time to put them together. Until now! I love this one - your first horse ride on your big brother.
And clearly somebody told you we are a baby-led weaning family, little lady, because you recently started grabbing our food and exploring it eagerly. And the angry shrieking which ensure if I don't want to share my food is quite something! You get so jealous! I'm so proud that you've instinctively started playing with food yourself. But I'm also sad that your days of being a boob-only baby are over so soon. It seemed such a long time with Little R, before he plunged into the world of food face first. How are you already so developed and ready? You might be ready, but I don't feel I am!
Beautiful girl! That smile. It's just tremendous ^_^
This was funny. Grandma Fiona was wafting a muslin in your face and you were FASCINATED!
A late afternoon nap. I was halfway through hoovering the house but you needed milk. Then a snooze. So we sat in the kitchen while Little R drew on the chalkboard and we relaxed for a little while.
Day before my little sister's wedding, I needed a haircut. Little R stayed at the library to sing with Mummy R. But this little boob-monster needed to come with me. So we walked through the village, with her in the wrap and a bumbo in my bag. Where else could I put her? Couldn't have her rolling around in the hair clippings. She was quite happy here. Ignored her toy, because her socks and the hairdryer next door were FAAAAR more interesting.
Better photos of you at your Auntie's wedding do exist, Baby O. But this is just cute. Fast asleep, wrapped on the floor while we all ate dinner.
Aw, look how much your big brother loves cuddling you. But from the look on your face, clearly the television was on. You are a screen demon. I can't think why the gogglebox was even on! I'm afraid you do spy a screen more than Little R did, but we try very hard to have extremely limited screentime. Sometimes, if Little R is relaxing with Shaun the Sheep, you and I play in the hall away from the distraction!
Baby in the mist (in the bath bubbles).
You are going through a tricky bit of development at the moment (a month-long Wonder Week!) and you just want to be close, all the time. That's ok. Snuggle on my back and I'll do chores.
You do love a little bounce.
"But WHY can't I eat Little R's playdough, Mummy?"
We had such fun doing a photoshoot with you two. We wanted a gorgeous snap to go on a canvas in the lounge. We did get a perfect one, but I love all the random ones... this particularly!
You missed dinner this evening, Baby O, because you fell asleep while I washed up. I ate with you still tucked up on my back. Peaceful snoring accompanied my munching.
