April

The weather improved in April and Katie enjoyed getting out in the garden with Mummy and Daddy.


She moved out of her carrycot and into her pushchair seat so that she could look around more,


though sometimes it could be a little tiring


She got out of the pushchair to see many things, including her first river, her first canal


first bluebell wood, orchard and many more.


Mummy loves apple blossom


and Katie seems to like it too





 Katie went on her first swing

and then her second, only a couple of weeks later




She played on a log:



and had fun indoors too


She especially loves 'flying' with Mummy or Daddy


and practising standing


She also started solid foods, and tried the following in the month of April:

Veg: potato, peas, broccoli, carrot, parsnip, sweet potato, cucumber, kale, courgette, green beans & spinach.
Fruit: pear, avocado, banana, apple, peach, plum, melon, apricot, rhubarb & mango.
Others: baby rice, baby porridge, rice cake, baked toast fingers, weetabix & red lentils.


In her new highchair


Are you sure this one is edible Daddy?





Easter

Over the Easter weekend we made our first trip north with Katie to see family.

Meeting cousin Toby



in the house where Mummy grew up


 Having family photographs taken in the garden

 
Uncle Mark, cousin Toby (who likes to pull tongues) and Auntie Bryony


With Grandma Linda


The babies find each other far more interesting than the camera



Katie loves to look at flowers


Auntie Bryony keeps making her laugh


At Preston Cemetery to see Nana and Grandad's grave


This is how she got her name


Visiting The Willows


Looking at books with Grandpa and Washington Bear


Showing Grandma Jo how well she can stand


Katie also managed to meet her Great Uncle Pete, Great Auntie Irene, Great Godmother (if such a thing exists) Beryl, and Mummy's family friends: Pat, Geoff, Frankie and Derek. It was a very tiring trip, but everyone enjoyed it very much. A big thank you to everyone we were able to visit or who came to see Katie.
