So today I had an exam and Beth stayed with her grandparents last night. I had a great sleep, best one in months but I missed her so much! I can hear her breathing over the baby monitor now and everything is right with the world again :-)
We had a beautiful day here and I went to look at the market stalls in town after the exam. I wanted to pick up something nice for Beth's room as it looks so bare. I picked up a pretty cool wooden zebra but when I showed it to her she got quite upset! So I guess it's going in my room for now. Her Dad is going to paint the room soon. Pink and green. He picked the colours....hope he knows what he's doing!
Beth was cutting her 4th tooth when I took this picture. It was around 9pm and she normally goes to bed at 7pm but she was so upset I let her sit up to watch corrie with me. All she did was cuddle into me which would have been very cute if I didn't know she was hurting.
This is one of the pictures Beth's Dad sent me while I was at work. I nearly fell off my chair I was laughing that much!! She's wearing her Granny's glasses. I'm still amazed she stayed still long enough for him to take the picture. She's such a wriggler.
These next 2 pictures are when she was watching the Grinch who stole Christmas. At first she wasn't sure but then Jim Carrey won her over. She wasn't that fussed on Happy Feet but I thought it was brill.

She turned 8 months on Tuesday but even though it is such a short time I couldn't imagine my life without her. Love you, baby girl x

Beautiful Days

It was a gorgeous day here yesterday and Beth and I spent a long time in the park looking at the ducks and rolling around on the grass. This was Beth's first time ever touching grass. She loved every minute of it and pulled out hand fulls. She was also covered in factor 50 sun screen. She was not happy about getting that!
Here she is discovering the cherries on her dress and standing with one hand holding on. Yesterday she managed to balance for a couple of seconds without holding onto anything. She's constantly practicing. She cant wait to be running around the house giving me heart attacks
Today I gave her mince mixed up with some veg. This did not go down well but she is ok now and is fast asleep. Usually she will sleep 7pm-6/7am but now that she is teething it's all over the place. This morning we were awake at 5.30am. It is now 20.20 and I am wrecked!
The cheeky grin here makes me think she knows she's keeping Mommy from her sleep!

New Tooth

Beth has a new tooth coming through! She got her bottom two at 4.5 months and nothing since until today. The new one is only peeping through so it'll be a while before there's a pic of that.
She is getting stronger and is starting to cruise along the couch.
Yesterday we went to the park to see the ducks. We think she may have said duck but it was probably just babbling. She loved running after the ducks with her Dad and "walking" around. Today is cleaning day so I dont have to look at a messy house when I come home from work. Beth is having apple crumble and chicken today. She tried tuna yesterday. Thank god she loves her grub. Long may it last!!
