Daddy was away for a few days at Halloween, so Katie only explored her pumpkin in early November.

'What do I do with it Mummy?'

Very happy to have Daddy home again

Mummy was very excited when Katie's mini beasts arrived. These were bought with some of Katie's birthday money.

By the end of November, Katie had been walking for 11 weeks, but walking indoors in tights or bare feet and walking outdoors in shoes on uneven ground are two very different things. Katie began practicing by wearing her new harness and reins (so that Mummy and Daddy could prevent her from falling and hitting her head).

'I think I'll cling onto Mummy and Daddy on this sloping ground'

Leaning a little against a sturdy tree

Clinging onto her stacking rings during a little photo shoot on Mummy and Daddy's bed.

Are we walking or dancing?

Fly agarics everywhere

Sadly at the end of November the vet agreed that Misty was on her last legs and the kindest thing to do was to put her down. Rest in peace little Mistypuss.

Katie loves Roland, but he's unsure whether or not to return her affection.

Katie has started to actually see things in pictures, so books are finally no longer simply objects she would like to chew. Katie likes to point at the pictures and have Mummy and Daddy tell her the names of things. She can now point out a few different things (mostly animals) when asked to find them on a page and especially likes pictures of cats.

Next month it will be Katie's second Christmas. Time flies!

    I love Katie's tights - I hope you told her Fly Agaric shouldn't be eaten. It's lovely to see a child outdoors,
