Nature and not
She has been cleaning out the paddocks where Jo stays - so whenever she is there she chats to him and pats him - so he already knows her and will come over to her when she comes into the area.
It is back to school with Jo and Christine though - so she started off doing some "no stirrups work".
I undid the 2nd big rows of braids that I had put in last week and it gave her lovely big curls in that area. The front row works really well as a natural Alice band. With the elastics on the end being pink and her wearing red today - we tucked the ends behind her ears. :-)
Hopefully we can get the last section of her hair done this week still. It is looking so nice and I really do need to keep up with it.
The photo also keeps a record of that toothy gap she has at the moment.
And he loves the fact that he can climb up onto the couches now. He climbs up and you can see the look on his face just says "look at me, this is so much fun, I am so big now."
Patches was not too impressed with the wet day and cuddled up with Hannah after lunch. She normally spends most of the day outside and then sleeps with Ruth - so it was a nice treat for Hannah. She was so pleased she asked Rachel to call me so that I could take a photo. It's also a nice reminder of how much Hannah loves this dress she was given. She is more than happy when there is a cooler day so that she can get to wear it.
And while the camera was out we had some fun with Hezekiah and the younger girls. What funny faces they can pull. I tried to get Hezekiah to do his "scary" face for me (it's just so cute and always makes us all laugh) but he was too interested in the camera.
Rachel also took this photo of me and Hezekiah. I decided to put it next to the one of me with Ruth before Hannah was born to compare them.
Left: 38 weeks, Hezekiah 15 1/2 months (almost 11kg and 82 cm tall).
Right: 40 weeks, Ruth almost 20 months (not even 10kg and 80cm tall).
So even though Ruth was over 4 months older at this point - she was actually smaller than what Hezekiah is now. A good reminder of how big this boy is. :-)
