Jason is jumping up and down with excitement because Rose can now crawl! Forwards! She got up this morning and was suddenly able to get all her limbs to do exactly what she wants. I placed her vile yellow musical lion over the other side of the mat and commanded ‘crawl for mummy’. She raced over on hands and knees like a pro. She is now thumping the lion to extract every ounce of music from it, which process will with any luck lead to the eventual death of the unpleasant lion in a shower of springs and batteries. A shallow grave has been dug in the garden in preparation.
