Dedushka In The Kitchen

Sunday, July 26th, 2009

This photo was taken drawing close to the end of July (26th to be precise), meaning this blog is now a mere five weeks behind schedule re. the aim of live-ish photo posting. Dedushka (Ira’s Dad) is holding Anna in the kitchen, whilst Anna herself shows off her strong back muscles by sitting quite upright.

Tiring Walk Means Sleep Time

Friday, July 24th, 2009

Most weeks we try to take Anna for a walk in the evening (when it is a little cooler for her and Daddy :) ), at least Monday to Friday, whilst we are near the park. Anyway, the 24th of July saw her sprawled out in her pushchair (she is now too big to be comfortable enough in her car seat the whole time), at the entrance to our flats. Once she wakes up, we go upstairs, have a bath, and get ready for bed.

Roll Your Own Way

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

Here we have a before (23rd July) and after (24th July) photo, so when Anna is older and needs more immunizations, we’ll be able to point out the post on the blog, and explain that even when she was a (comparatively) tiny baby, she coped with 5 lots of injections very well, and was still happy rolling on the floor.
Given virtually any size of safe, clean and soft area to play on, Anna will normally combine rolling on her side and crawling (backwards only still) until she is at the edge of the pre-ordained ‘nice’ area, and so able to play on the ‘normal’ carpet instead. It doesn’t matter how many times you reposition her, unless you have a Mummy or Daddy physically in the way, or some large sofa cushions arranged strategically (around the TV/DVD/Satellite/Xbox area for example), she will move with surprising speed back to where she thinks is best :)
