Comments for Zero and a Half
Zero and a Half: 03/05/07
Today Harriet is six months old, or "zero and a half" as Sean calls it. She is on the verge of being able to sit unsupported by herself. She is now old enough to play by herself if I bring toys (or often times baking utensils) for her to play with while she's in her highchair. Since she can play like that I'll often times have her sitting next to me while I'm at work, rather than having her in her crib or in her bouncy seat.
Harriet and Sean act as if they've always been roommates. They look out for each other and recently Sean has even started hugging her (without being asked). When it gets close to the time to pick up Sean, Harriet starts to fuss and look towards the door. Picking up her brother and seeing all the other boisterous kids is one of the highlights of her day.
Another thing Harriet has started to do is meow. She has always liked Caligula and she thinks that animal noises are very funny. Her first attempt at an animal noise is the meow and it's very convincing.
