Thanksgiving with the Lymans

Grandma and grandpa Oregon have come over to meet Freya and celebrate her first thanksgiving. We had a traditional Turkey, stuffing, potato and sweet potato, but we added a kiwi twist of pavlova for desert. Freya didn't partake in dinner, but she did sit with us while we ate, before heading off to bed. She tried a bit of Turkey and mashed potato the next day.

Judy and Ralph have come over to New Zealand for a couple of weeks to get to know Freya and to see a bit more of the country that they didn't see last time. Freya has been enjoying playing with grandma. Freya has been learning to do a few new tricks, sitting up and transitioning from crawling to sitting and back again....we have had a few face plants as she got the hang of it. She has also pulled herself up a couple of times...but is still very wobbly on her feet, mainly because she tries to stand on one leg, or cross her legs.

We have had a couple of colds lately, but other than struggling to breathe at night she has been pretty happy during the day and continues to play hard as usual.

6 months

Can't believe Freya is half a year old! It has been a quite a ride....but we have definitely reached a fun part. Summer has also arrived with some great weather (some days). We have been spending a bit of time in the garden and also the local playground. As well as daily walks, Aaron has started to take Freya for short bike rides in the trailer.

Walk In the backpack

She is loving her swimming lessons and went underwater the other day. Freya is very active and her crawling is changing, as she gets up on her knees and is trying to pull herself up. She loves chasing Mifi and climbing on and wrestling with her dad. She will be getting to spend more time with her dad now as last week he finished his uni course. Yay! 

Up on her knees, rocking back and forth.

She is full of surprises, managing to unscrew the lid of a water bottle that she was chasing across the floor the other day. She ended up lying in a puddle of water. She is certainly keeping us on our toes!
