Forest baby

Perhaps the best thing about where we live in France is that the beautiful Forêt de Marly (Marly Forest),  the historical hunting estate of the kings of France, is at the end of our garden. 
Henry (7.5 months) is showing all the signs of being just like his nature loving brother and the recent dry weather has allowed him to crawl and pull and taste and touch the forest rather than being carried through it.

One of his favourite things to do at the moment is to try to bounce whilst in the seated position.  He loves to watch Freddy (28 months) jumping on his bed so you can tell that he is really keen to copy him.

That's why he was so happy to find this bouncing branch.
 Keep on smiling Henry! You can brighten up the dullest of days.
