Yesterday my 15-month-old decided that this business of being upright is actually alright. She's been cruising the furniture for ages but yesterday she actually let go - only for a second, but she stood on her own two feet nonetheless.
Encouraged by this, I walked her around by her hand a little more than I have been. At one point I let go of her hand and she did take a teeny step before falling into my arms.
It wasn't a 'proper' first step, just the start of something exciting.
I tried to capture her attempts on camera but pretty much failed...
Today we picked up E's new school uniform and he insisted on wearing it all day - even the black lace-up school shoes he has.
Dude doesn't realise there's 13 years of hating that darned thing ahead of him...
In another exciting (well, for me anyway!) first I picked up a delicious piece of Pyrex at my locals Salvos. It is a lemon-lozenge yellow Pyrex Agee bowl - made in Australia and possibly (going only a quick Google here) from the 1950s.
Of course I completely forgot to photograph it until about 5 minutes ago, so I've only an appalling pic to show. I've long admired Thrifted Treasure's beautiful Pyrex collection, so I was chuffed to discover this piece. Uh-oh, I sense the beginning of a Pyrex addiction...!
