Vivien is seven months old today. She still has just two teeth, but she's made great strides in eating things. From bare cutlery a month ago, she's eaten oatmeal, mashed avocado, pita, pappadam, mashed potato… banana and pear were not so hot, so for now she is savoury baby.

Papa amusement park (bounce, spin, sway, whee!) has gone from merely distracting to fun, with smiles and giggles. This is good for my fitness and both our morale! She's definitely still working on crawling, and also at manipulating objects — we have to eat with our plates and cutlery further and further toward the centre of the table when she's in one of our laps. Fortunately, she is sometimes content to play with stuff on a cushion beside the table.

Oscar is working on language — novel short sentences, using people's names, vocabulary explosion! He's also been going on short bus-and-walk trips without a stroller, and is playing a bit better with others.

They are both loves!

As Oscar was the youngest mobile boy at Irene's party yesterday, I thought that his playing-together skills were impressive. It wasn't until he got tired that he shrieked (which is quite normal) instead of shared (which is learned). AND he didn't use that larger-than-life tonality that I call 'television voice' like the older boys.....
