New discoveries

Lauren has recently discovered her own feet! While sitting in the bumbo, she likes nothing better than looking, feeling and trying to eat her own feet while wriggling her toes, too.

See Video 347 of Lauren examining her feet while big sister Natalie provides commentary.

Natalie in her Chinese school

Here are some recent pics of Natalie in her K1F class at Kiangsu & Chekiang Primary School. Every month they celebrate the birthdays of all the students born in that month and the students all enjoy presents and cake (and we enjoy the pictures!)

Even though they're older, it's still hard to get them to all look and smile at the camera at the same time.
Natalie's wondering, "When do we get to eat?"
Cake! Cake! Cake!

Naked baby alert!

Today while changing a diaper, I ended up giving Lauren a full body bath (yes, it was one of those kinds of diapers). When finished, I let her have some tummy time on the sofa while I dug out some clothes and a camera...

I'm a naked baby!
Mommy, you do realize I don't have a diaper on right now, don't you?
But don't worry, I won't pee on the sofa.
Maybe next time.

Little Singer

Lauren likes to sing to herself before falling asleep. She does this almost EVERY TIME, even in the middle of the night after a feed. I can't sleep while she's singing so here's Video 346 of Lauren singing herself to sleep in the dark (turn up the volume).

With Natalie sick all last week (mild fever) and out of school, we decided to stay in this weekend and just take it easy.

Lauren enjoying the (significantly) better view from her bumbo-sitter.
Are you looking at my chin folds?
Big sister Natalie wasn't in the mood for taking pictures. This is the only good one we managed to snap.
Lauren was the ideal model; she was curious about the camera and kept looking at it.
Got a little smile.
... and a drool string!
Her little hand is getting chubby, too.
With Lauren's crib beside our bed, this is what I see when lying down on my bed.

Also, earlier this week, Lauren suddenly decided to roll over (back to front). She's so strong! SeeVideo 345 of Lauren in action. Now, whenever we put her down, the first thing she likes to do is immediately roll to her front, and then get upset that she's doing tummy time... again!
