The Mountain Buggy performed beautifully, both on the paths and through the trees:
Tim's parenting style involves sympathy at all times:
And don't worry - a quick cuddle with Daddy and Risky was back to her usual smiling self!
And while we think out girl is getting bigger by the day, here's a reminder that she's still quite small really:
(yes, this does show up the grim state of the tiles in our bathroom. If anyone would like to come round and clean them for us they are very welcome! I'd rather play with my girl than scrub grouting...)

It's been a fun month. Sitting is old hat now, no pillows needed for support any more! Marisca now gets up on her hands and knees and rocks back and forth, but is showing no signs of wanting to crawl just yet. This is good, as it means I can still pop out to the kitchen to get a cup of tea knowing she won't have got into mischief while I'm away. Favourite toys at the moment are ribbons, an old necklace, juggling cubes and anything Mummy or Daddy are holding and trying to use. You will note there are no *actual* baby toys in that list...
And - whisper it - sleeping is getting better, with much less protesting. Or maybe I've finally got to the stage of coping with the crying! Marisca is pretty predictable with nap times, which means we have a routine of sorts to our days. It's not Gina Ford, but it works for us. The best bit of my day? Walking into Marisca's room after a nap and seeing the huge smile she gives me every time. Melts my heart :-)

The photos are a month or so old but I just found them again and wanted to share!
