Raspberry Blower

Bella has learnt a new trick - raspberry blowing. She delights in blowing raspberries as she is eating (by eating I mean Bella smearing food all over her face), Jason managed to capture it on video yesterday. Marika got to see it in action this morning as she was feeding her breakfast. While downloading old video footage from our video camera last night we realised that the raspberry blowing is not a new trick. She started doing it at about 5 months old, strangely about the time we started feeding her solid foods, she is much better at it now(eating and raspberry blowing). She has also gotten more comfortable in her new high chair so feeding her, the tray, the seats, and the sides is fun and a great cleaning up experience.

I think she is the fastest crawler in the Singapore and moves at lightning speed to be by your legs in a blink of an eye. We are getting very careful about where we step. Jason keeps talking about attaching a mop head to her belly so she can clean as she goes. I guess she has to earn her keep at some stage. Bella's favourite pastime still seems to be playing with the DVDs. Daddy says no pulls her away then she goes straight back and it starts over again. Great exercise for Jason!

Lucas & Isabella Playing in the Fountain at Vivo CIty

We are looking forward to Chinese New Year in 11 days. Two public holidays in a row so Marika gets to be home. Yeah for holidays! On the weekend we met up with some friends who have twin boys a few months older than Bella, at the new mega mall shopping centre extravaganza called Vivo City (Lovely view of Sentosa Island and the big Merlion. Bella had a splash around the fountain with the boys but I don't think she was too sure about it. We'll try again, maybe when she is walking.
