Sophia Molly: Four and Five Month Update

Wow, what a jam-packed couple of months it has been! Not only did we
head to England for a second time, where we traveled the length and
breadth of the country attempting to meet up with all the friends and
family we could (sorry to those whom we didn’t make it to this time
around…we’ll be back!), but these 8 weeks of Sophia’s life were also
jam-packed full of new developments and exciting milestone moments. I’ve
been such a proud mummy and can’t stop telling everyone about how
advanced she is…is it just me or do we all end up like this eventually
when it comes to our children?!

These two months Sophia has liked:

Meeting all of her family, as well as her two god mothers

on weekly play dates with other babies and mummies that live near us,
and being very affectionate with her new friends (there’s a lot of
patting and face stroking!)

Laughing hysterically at funny noises mummy and daddy make

first exploration of grown up food – mainly grabbing bananas out of my
hands before they reach my mouth! She’s also had a bit of play time with
some chunks of fruit in her high chair, but hasn’t fathomed that she
can eat it properly yet. All of the serious weaning fun and games start
next month!

Reaching out to play with new toys and staring intently at them before putting them in her mouth

Bed times, especially long, warm bubble baths and reading books in bed afterwards

These two months Sophia has disliked:

What is supposed to come after her bed time routine. Sleep has not been high on her list of priorities this month

Doing one thing for too long, or going for too long without stimulation. This girl likes constant entertainment!

Having her first ever cold, which dragged on for a good couple of weeks. Who knew a tiny baby could produce so much snot?!

These two months’ firsts:

First time rolling both ways and in both directions

First time making new babbling sounds, including consonants and a new, strange shrieky noise!

First time she has been really clingy to me, and upset when I have left the room

First real round the neck cuddles

First time sitting up!

Mr Sunshine and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in July, and a
couple of weeks later, the anniversary of the day we found out I was
pregnant. What an awful lot can happen in a year!
