Food and five months
Ruth - my artist. She noticed that she had cracked skin under her toe and it was bleeding. She took some toilet paper to wipe it off and noticed she had created two eyes. She then proceeded to "draw" a face (nose, lips, eye brows and even some "pink cheeks").
She also made the note that she has not been creaming herself enough lately - thus the cracks. Our big 10 litre tub of coconut oil arrived this week - so perhaps she will get oiled up more regularly now. :-) (We bought it mainly for eating but it's great for skin and her hair too).
here) of reducing carbohydrates but not missing out on what you are "used to" is having cauliflower mash. I tried it today and Brendon and I really enjoyed it. The children can burn up loads of carbs - so they don't have to have any if they don't want (they had rice with theirs and there were enough veggies in the chicken dish).
Wednesday 17th: Asher's 5 month photo shoot. At first she was too interested in smiling at Hezekiah.
Such a sweety.
Still fully breastfed and still looking nice and chubby. By far my chubbiest baby. Not only was the pregnancy the healthiest one I have had - my milk is obviously benefiting from our new supplements too.
She is 6,9kg now - following the 50th percentile line on the growth chart beautifully.
And she is 70cm tall. She has been between the 98 and 99.6 percentile all along (a nice tall girl) but this month she is right up at the 99.6 line. I got quite a surprise when I measured her and even double checked.
We had a bit of fun when we called Nana on Skype this evening.
Doesn't Asher make the cutest little pig.
