Six months today [20130426|13:41]

Humuhumu is six months old today. She can sit unaided, faces outward when riding in her sling and enjoys the taste of her toes. She takes nearly all of her milk feeds from a bottle now, to make the transition to nursery easier, as well as eating two meals a day (mostly in the form of yoghurts and pureed fruit and veg). Presently she is being a sensible child and sleeping off a terrible cold, acquired from visits to the aforementioned nursery.

Image of Humuhumu sitting unaided on the yellow spare room bedcovers, wearing trackie bottoms and a white-and-red patterned short-sleeved onesie, tasting the lens cap for my 35 mm prime.

Same as above but without the lens cap.

Fallen over, attempting to place toes in mouth.

31 second YouTube video of Humuhumu giggling at a wooden spoon. She is sitting on the kitchen counter in her lime green bumbo, wearing a sheep onesie and a white sun hat, while her auntie dizzykj moves the spoon around her.

69 second YouTube video featuring more giggling.

Five days from today, Humuhumu has her first full day at nursery. One week from today, I return to work. One of us is blissfully unaware of the massive transition about to take place in our lives. The other is having magnificently obvious anxiety dreams thanks to an unsubtle subconscious.

I'm glad! It went swimmingly - for her, anyway! I spent the first day walking around anxiously and pretending not to cry in the cafe. I also picked her up fifteen minutes early because I couldn't take it any longer. She, on the other hand, is loving nursery.

Babies are so easily entertained!

And she has such a cute laugh!

It's easy to make her smile, but hard to make her laugh like that. I tried to repeat the spoon trick. It didn't work - apparently an Auntie's magic touch is required!

I agree! She keeps getting cuter, too.
