Esme is almost seven months old. She is trying to sit up by herself, but still falls over a lot. She is grabbing things and reaching for things she can see that are too far away - like her sippy cup, bottle or crinkly book. She is pulling herself up to her knees and onto her feet while half-bent but hasn't managed to pull into standing position on anything yet. No real crawling yet, more like directed rolling and flopping. The other day she pointed at Misha and said 'oggie' which I'm pretty sure meant 'doggie' as I keep telling her when she reaches for the dogs that 'that's a doggie.'
I'm working five days a week or so, mostly closing shifts which doesn't leave much time for anything else. Our garden is coming along nicely, Mark and I have both been out there working on it, him much more than I. On my last day off I went to town and bought some geraniums to plant alongside the garden in some planters that were bare. Also our water heater gave way and Mark spent a whole day and a lot of effort replacing it while I was at work. He did a really great job getting that done!
I wish we were more successful gardeners...
You must be heaps busy with work 5 days a week and your businesses too! Hoping your finding time to rest :-) So wonderful to read how Esme is growing and developing.
