Ruari’s been practicing getting up on her knees for a couple of weeks now. She mostly just scoots backwards and turns in circles. BUT, “Practice makes perfect!” I keep telling her. I love the photo above! It was totally a happy accident too.
So, I’ve been telling myself that “practice makes perfect.” too. I’m taking Simplicity’s SLR class and starting to understand a bit about my new camera. This week we’re working on shutter speed. I was practicing my shutter speed with Princess the kitty and little baby butt yesterday afternoon:
It sort of looks like Princess is controlling that teething ring with mind control. ;D
Do you like how my baby is halfway under her playpen? Such a good mom. ;D Anyway… back to the practice crawling…
I tried to tempt Ruari with this yellow doughnut…. She wanted it! But… still no crawling yet.
Practice makes perfect. 😀 I think she’ll get it soon.
