Thursday 23 February 2012: 19/30 - Something Orange
Day 19 of the 30 day challenge and I was struggling a bit.
Then I realised that I have a ginger child; the perfect 'something orange'. We were making some oaty snack bars in the kitchen and she was playing around with her 'Sid the Science Kid' microphone (I know it's a US show but Brits do look it up, it's a good one!) and, well, you couldn't get more orange really could you :)
I had so much trouble choosing which one to blip though. There's a fab one of her giggling (but you can't see the microphone so there isn't that much orange in it) and another fab one of her belting out a ballad, Whitney style but this one was my favourite.
Amy is still desperate to crawl. She is happy on all fours now (she had previously not been able to free her second leg when going from sitting to all fours) and she'll happily stretch right out to reach things but she just won't move her legs. Likewise when she's standing; she just hasn't quite learned that her feet are able to move so she just overbalances. Once she has the confidence to move her feet she will no doubt be pulling herself up on things left, right and centre.
They both enjoyed making the snack bars, at least. The good thing about them is, the ingredients are tasty on their own (pumpkin seeds, dried fruits etc) so you end up snacking whilst making a snack. Bonus!
