Another thing Cara's been up to is drawing. Sometimes on paper. All too often on herself, occasionally on her shoes, her brother (especially his face) and the wall. However, her real graphic achievement has been learning to draw faces...eyes, noses and mouths. They're still all in funny places, but it's a start. Her first picture was of Milo, a character from one of her favourite TV shows here - The Tweenies.
Meanwhile Luke is now almost 7 months. He's finally decided to choke down the occasional mouthful of solids. He's hardly a voracious eater, but he's at least beginning to tolerate being fed baby-mush. Especially if it's fruit. He already despises vegetables.
He's also started grasping things, so he's now able to play with toys more. This morning he even grabbed his dummy and managed to put it in his own mouth twice.
However, the trick Luke is really pleased to have learned is sitting up. He's been able to sit for a number of weeks now, but he didn't stay up for long. Cara would always get so excited about him sitting up that she'd hug him and he'd fall. Alternatively she'd push him over or he'd lean away from her and fall. Now he's stable enough to sit better by himself, Cara finds him sitting more boring and a friend has loaned us a curved pillow to put behind him.
