    Oh my goodness I can’t believe she’s walking – well done Mama! If it’s any consolation my little man has never taken a bottle or sippy cup, he eventually conceded and drinks milk from an open cup…. so be patient it will happen…. Congrats to you and Little Missy and of course the Husband – mustn’t forget him

    Enjoy the freedom Caroline! What a great start little Missy has received! Happy travels in the new shoes!

    Thanks ladies! Joanne: I think the next step is going to be into wellies for this weather. Perfect for scooting around on Grandad’s farm. Hope all is well with your newest arrival.Susan: That’s good to hear. How long did it take before he decided to take some milk from a source other than yourself? We’re still getting pursed lips and raspberries when a drop of anything other than water touches her mouth!

    Aww, she is such a honey. You must be so excited about the freedom now. Bring on the wine and spicy foods!!

  5. Gillian says:

    Yes definitely momentous for both – congrats. I can’t help but wonder if maybe you got a pair of shoes too??? 😉

    Katrina: The most spice-free time she had was when we were in New Zealand. Between the Herbie’s Baby Spice kit being used in her own food, regular curries at home, stopovers in Malaysia and the trip to Vietnam, there’s been no lack of spice in the life of Little Missy so far!Gillian: chance would be a fine thing. New shoes are far down the list at the moment but I’m enjoying the chance to get back into all my non-breastfeeding tops. It’s like a whole new wardrobe!
