A taste or two of trifle.


We had another party for Sheena yesterday. She had oodles of fun.
She had a taste of trifle, and she all of a sudden re-learnt how to use her spoon. Funny what a bit of cream, chocolate and and sugar will teach you. Hubby had to hide his desert, as we didn't want her up all night on a sugar-high (and he wanted a decent portion himself). Generally we're pretty strict in keeping her diet healthy, but it was her party, so a bit of trifle was on on the menu.
This week, I finally moved her off formula for her midday bottle. She is still breastfed twice a day, but its now 100% cows milk for her other milk feed. It has taken us about a month to slowly take her off formula, as her skin is fairly sensitive to rashes, and I thought it might make it more-so.
Sheena has become quite the camera-poser. She hears the camera turn on, and knows exactly who to look at, and more importantly to turn on a sweet expression.
She has associated "good girl" with being a good girl, and she claps herself. Also, I almost forgot, but she knows her name. This surprised me, because she has got so many pet-names that I thought she'd think her name was gorgeous or something.
