Train ride

It's been a while since I posted a train picture, so here it is :)

In the train

At not even 7 months, Nandu is now able to stand on his own... Luckily for now he can't crawl, so we don't quite have to babyproof yet. But I guess it won't be long.

Here is a little proof... the video has no sound, so don't worry about not hearing anything. And of course I actually missed the first time he got up and had a huge grin on his face...

Since we got burglared last week and they stole the camera, I only have bad iPhone pictures... Need to get a new camera very soon.  But here is a little selection of September pics.

It's getting colder... time to get the bear out.

Still in a bear theme... but red sox this time!

And everyone knos there is nothing better than feet.

Les Giettes (ter)

And another trip to Les Giettes, with a whole bunch of people. Some from Neuchatel, some from Geneva, and some from Boston. And an absolutly perfect weather!

Taking a bath in the pure Giettes tradition

With Orion

Alex and the cow

Hanging out

The arms are still rather short...

Sittin n' eatin

Just a few random pics from early September.

Proof that Nandu can now sit unassisted!

and while smiling...

If we feed him the right type of fruit, he can handle them alone... even without teeth.

6 months!!!!

First the numbers: 70.5 cm, 8.08 kg and 45.5 cm of head contour... All on mum's milk!

The day was just nice, very sunny, nicely warm. A few hours at daycare just to be sure he is ready to start for real next week. Then Vishal got home and he got to sit on his belly.

Now, serious stuff is going to happen. Mummy's milk is awesome but it's time to start real food! We decided to start with some delicious steamed pear:

We let him play with it for a bit and then we mashed it up, to let him play some more.

Are you ready.....

Not super convinced at first

really not convinced...

Let's see if it tastes better when daddy feeds it.

mmmh not sure.

really not sure.

Actually, Nandu did great! Ok, he didn't much but he kept asking for more for at least 15 min despite making weird faces everytime he actually succeed in getting some in his mouth.
We mainly hold the spoon in front of his mouth and let him play with it. It was awesome :)

And to wash up this delicious dinner he played with his sippy cup for 10 min. Don't think he got any water out though...

At home

Tomorrow Nandu will be 6 months... and we'll give him shots for his birthday again... we are aweful!
He started daycare and this gives me a second to post 2 random pictures from around the house, between finishing a talk for a video meeting and doing laundry.
