dulcie update

 I haven't blogged about Dulcie in a wee while (oh, at least a week!) but she's been coming on great guns behind the scenes.  She's still absolutely loving her food and now eats two meals a day, sometimes two-coursers.  She's had avocado, broccoli, potatoes, carrots, butternut squash, peas, sweet potato, peach, banana, prunes (we had a bit of a constipation issue for a while!), cucumber, parsnip, peppers, melon, apple, pear, grapefruit, blueberries, beetroot and a tiny taste of curry.  I think that's about it.  So far she hasn't refused anything, although she didn't look too impressed with today's combo of broccoli, potato and butternut squash.  She likes to steal the spoon from me and feed herself and always wants to try what the grown-ups are eating/drinking.  At her weigh-in this week she was 5.16 kilos (11lbs 5oz) which is just over three times her birth weight!  She has finally started wearing the second size of nappies, although she still has plenty of room in most of her 0-3 month clothes.  Over the last three weeks she has mastered rolling over from her tummy to her back and, as you can see, is getting much better at sitting up.  She's teething at the moment so has been a bit rosy-cheeked and grumpy but can always be cheered up by a spot of singing.  She goes from red-faced roaring to full-on smiling in a split second if I sing her Ali Bali Bee.
Graham produces a similar (but slightly more hypnotic) effect by singing Summertime.  Here she is giving him a special father's day look of love as he sang to keep her entertained in Paisley train station.  Dulcie and I took Graham to Ad Lib for a very tasty lunch on father's day, but then we had to go through to Paisley to visit Graham's mum in hospital.  She had a very nasty fall last week and broke her knee and elbow.  She's back home now and on the mend, all stookied up.  Poor Granma!
