These two months Sophia has liked:
Meeting all of her family, as well as her two god mothers
Going 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
Her 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!
