Baby Ivy June 06

(Will you forgive me if I say she's growing like a weed?  Will she forgive me if I start this already?) 

 

Life in June is about coming to grips with the fact that all the parenting books, midwives, nurses and websites contradict each other and  that there appear to well and truly be no hard and fast answers.  Bluntly,the history of humanity seems to have reached precious little generalisable knowledge about these little humans...However, we've been getting to know Ivy quite a bit and our few successes seem to have come from this as much as anything.

Highlights: she is smiling, also, she is starting to really be a strong/determined little baby, propping herself way up, lifting her head and turning it around...  The doctor told us she'd be a handful.
