6 months old

I have turned 6 months today! :-)))

As you can imagine, it was a big weekend for our family. The photos below will tell you more.
First attempts to play with solids. I discovered that avocado is soft and I liked the look of broccoli. Not sure what to think about carrot yet. :-)
Not much ended up in my mouth as you can see but that's ok. I have plenty of time.
Nan enjoyed carrying me around with her. Those skyscrapers behind are Canary Wharf. 
Mummy and daddy on their new bikes in our park. Don't worry, I'm not going in my mum's basket!
Chilling out on the balcony with Uncle Emil.

Having a great time with daddy.

TummyTub

Have you heard about the TummyTub?

I admit it took me a little while to get used to using one. There was a time when I couldn't decide whether I preferred a traditional bath or a bucket but mummy and daddy gently persuaded me to give it another go and I am grateful for that!
It is a truly enjoyable experience. I feel warm and secure and it feels really cosy inside the tub.
Warning: Unless you're a baby yourself, don't try this at home! :-)
My new little ducks. Quack quack!

And a little bonus:

Love of books

Can you guess where this photo was taken?
That's right! I went to the library for the first time today. It was in Blackheath, which is one of the jewels of south-east London.
I spent so much time looking at books that my mummy called me a bookworm but I'm not a worm, I'm a baby, a bookbaby.
The library is such a lovely place with a nice selection of black-and-white books and...
... a few shiny ones!
 Mummy, I'd like to do that again, please. :-)

1st Polish Father's Day

As you know, my daddy is a lucky man as he gets to celebrate two Father's Days. :-) The weather wasn't good enough to go to Greenwich Park today so I decided to invite him to a new Polish restaurant nearby instead (Polish Tavern, SE12 0PS). Dad liked my idea of spending the day stuffing ourselves as he is a real foodie.
My parents and nan had dumplings and stuffed cabbage which are traditional Polish dishes. They loved them and said they will be coming back to try some desserts.
The exciting bit for me is that I was given a high chair to sit in for the first time! My mum ordered one for me already but we're still waiting for the delivery. They said last Friday, oh well. I am looking forward to having solids very soon. I promise to keep you informed how it's going.

PS We were so overwhelmed by the special occasion that we forgot to take photos of daddy in the restaurant, oops.

Tied up

I know I haven't been very active here this week...
But you know I have my toys to play with.
  Plenty of them!
 
The truth is I have been tied up with my nan who's visiting again. It's great to have her around. :-)

Grand medieval joust

Right, we're back from Eltham Palace. It was a wonderful day! Have a look below.
That's the palace itself. 
We didn't see any of the rooms but we did go inside the great hall to hear musicians. It was my first concert ever! My favourite song was the one about Robin Hood.
The musicians also performed outside.

 The jester was fantastic entertainment!
There were knights, owls and horses everywhere.
Casual atmosphere.
Piggyback with dad.
Photos with mum.
A wooden bridge.
We didn't have a chance to explore the gardens that much so we need to be back. :-) 

Auntie Liz, thank you again for the lovely recommendation!

1st UK Father's Day

It's Father's Day here in the UK and I'm taking my dad to Eltham Palace and Gardens as recommended by auntie Liz. They are having a grand medieval joust over there so you may expect a separate post about it some time later.
I love you, daddy. xxx

Milk spillage and door bouncer

This week I've done a few things that my parents were quite shocked to see...
First I tore the newspaper mummy was reading.
Next I knocked daddy's porridge off the table, which resulted in milk spillage all over the kitchen floor, oops!
Moreover, when my parents tried to prevent me from looking at the computer screen and put Artur the Hippo on the edge of my crib, I secretly took him down so I could see what they were up to. They were actually looking at my photos - and to be honest with you, they have been doing it all the time recently. I wonder why... :-)
They must really love me as they set up a door bouncer for me to use after all this. I'm loving it! 

Thank you, Paolo, for lending it to me. Hugs!
