Birthday fun for Ruth
They even got 20 pizzas from the Kiosk at the Pools. What an added bonus. She ate her packed lunch for dinner when she got home. Pizza a much nicer lunch. :-)
I took the girls to the bus in the morning and then they got dropped off in Culverden on the way back, where Rachael's mum works. Ruth was treated to an ice cream while her mum finished off work. So a day full of treats.
Thursday 19th: Sitting so beautifully. She has even worked out how to reach forward and get toys and still keep her balance.
Ruth's birthday today. A big 12 year old already. She was very excited when she saw that we had bought her the Calligraphy book she had contemplated buying from the Scholastic Book Club. She has often been interested in learning Calligraphy, so she didn't take long to get started this morning. Even before she had breakfast.
I know she is really going to enjoy this. She says she hopes it will help her general handwriting improve too. :-)
BELOW: I wanted to get a video of Anastasia's backwards crawl. Not the best video, but at least some bit of record of the fun we have had watching her develop her skills.
Those little hands just keep moving backwards. So sweet.
Left: Anastasia in such a lovely crawling position. I'm sure it won't be long before she figures out how to move forward from here.
Rachel got back from a very successful CEF Camp this evening. She couldn't believe it when she saw Anastasia sitting so well. Before camp Anastasia had the ability to sit, but never bothered doing it for more than a few seconds and then would happily just roll back. So Rachel was so surprised when we just put her down in a sitting position and she happily played there for ages.
