10 weeks

Dorothea is being very smiley and initiates grinning sessions with pretty much anyone! She is starting to grab things and when lying on the play mat, slowly, with great concentration, raises her hand to the hanging toy and carefully wraps her fingers around it.

Scooting with friends

Getting to Steiner has got a bit more complicated now that there are two of them. We can't cycle yet, and it's a pretty long walk. So we have taken to driving to South Bank and then scooty biking over the bridge. Some of our friends have followed suit (they don't like the cold cycle!), and now we have a caravan of scooty bikes heading home at the end of the session.

The boys are so funny - they scoot 200 yards and then stop for a chat:
"Why is your bike pink, Robin?"
"It's not pink, Hanyul, it's purple"
"It is pink, Dylan - I like it"
"I like it too"

The Park

Nathaniel and I have been enjoying going to the Very Young Friends of West Bank Park again. This week we made houses for felt animals and then built a den big enough for us all stil in and listen to a story and have a snack.

Then we went scootering around the park and had fun learning how to zoom down the hill and use the break to stop.

And what was Dorothea doing?

Christmas was great, but it is nice to get back to normal life (though saying that, I haven't done a day on my own with both kids yet!).

Nothing of particular interest has happened, which is exactly the way it should be. There have been scooter rides and seeing friends and doing drawings. And everyone has grown a bit:
