Your Royal Fix

We all enjoy the new daybed ;-)

King's new teeth are all through and he is happy to sit on the floor again or do tummy time. He's thinking about crawling - he's at the inching-backward-while-trying-to-go-forward stage. When we put him down on his front he automatically goes to hands and knees for a second, so hopefully he'll get the hang of it.

King still doesn't like being spoon-fed, but he can now handle lumps of stuff and today had his first vegemite sandwich morsels which went down a treat! I may try him on big chunks of banana and pumpkin to gnaw on, as self-feeding is definitely his thing.

Princess' walking continues to improve slowly. Standing still is obviously a very advanced skill, and usually if she encounters an unexpected obstacle or another rocketing kid she has to fall down to deal with it. Today during dancetime at playgroup Princess managed to halt momentarily to avoid the others a few times, and provided they didn't actually bump into her she was able to stay upright and keep going! This is a huge improvement!

Princess has mastered spoon feeding herself porridge in the mornings now. I imagine most kids can do this at her age, but I'd chosen to skip the mess until she had enough control to do it properly! Most days she doesn't mess at all. Awesome.

Hmm, what else? Princess can count to 100 with a little help when she gets to each new set of ten (30, 40, 50 etc). Then she'll gleefully continue "Firty-One! Firty-Two! Firty-Free!". She's a right chatterbox and we have just moved from the "What" questions to the "Why" questions. Good fun.

Oops, someone is awake - gotta go!
