Lotty has continued to try new solid foods, including carrots, pears (cooked up at home) and prunes! She has also started eat rice rusks (shown in picture below). She isn't always the neatest eater, but she is getting the hang of it, and Max enjoys looking from crumbs and finishing leftovers.

Of course, Lotty sometimes wonders what it is that we are giving her! So far about her favorite thing to spread on her face is carrots, though I think it is prunes with rice cereal in the picture below (right).
For Christmas, Auntie Marie & Nick gave Lotty a giant kangaroo with a baby in her pouch. The baby has been named Foster. No definitive name has emerged for Foster's mother.
Auntie Kathryn helped Lotty open some presents on Christmas evening. Kathryn is Lotty's part-time nanny, so they know each other really well. This was a mobile of the world with people from all over. It was from Oma and Grandpa Derksen and came from the Ten Thousand Villages store here in Seattle.
