Jumping

Why sleep when you can blow raspberries and jump. And yes she really is as wide as she is tall, hence the new piggie pants. She needed something that was wide enough to go over cloth nappies, but not really long. They ended up needing to be rolled up a bit anyway.
Thanks for all your great ideas yesterday. It was a lot easier today. I went for bribery - chocolate cake and a trip to rent some DVDs. I don't think having a very smug twin sister helps on these occasions. She was quite bossy telling Grace to have her medicine knowing that she didn't have to have any.

See, Kate, bribery is everything!!! Eva is gorgeous. I remember master 5 in his jolly jumper and he used to be so funny doing ballet all over the place in it!! Enjoy these great moments, Kathryn.

She is gorgeous. Isabelle used to love being in her jolly jumper too, and used to bounce for ages in it with a big grin on her face. Love the piggy pants too.

Gawd bless the jolly jumper. Part baby ride, part baby minder, all fun.

I firmly believe in bribery as a good parenting trait. The Smurf is easily bribed to come give me a kiss in lieu of getting his favourite orange ball!

so sweet - aren't jolly jumpers such a great invention. So much joy for bubs and their parents. Beautiful blog

She looks very happy with herself (& very cute). Wish my girl had a bit more chub on her, it's so much less worry when (not if) they get sick. Cute pants as well.

Why sleep, when you can blow raspberries and launch toys across the room from you highchair (we don't have a jolly jumper. I love this age, and it's even better the second time around :))) What a lovely baby!
