Our bambino turned 5 months old at the weekend. She has changed so much recently.
She is now starting to practise sitting up and using her bumbo,
She will actually sit through and enjoy hearing a good story
(her current favourite is Monkey Puzzle - thanks Alison)
She is getting more wriggly by the day and now turns over much more regularly.
She has also found her feet and has started sucking her big toe, lovely! I still find it funny to imagine not realising you have a part of your own body...
She will chuckle but it takes a bit of work. I got one recently whilst singing the power ballad classic 'Eternal Flame' (harder than you'd think to sing well) which was on VH1 'Sonia's Ladies of the 80's'. Not sure what is more worrying, the fact I was viewing such a programme or that Mabel found it funny. She was no doubt laughing at not with me.
She has started to show preferences for certain things - she loves her dinosaur towel when getting out the bath (no idea why) and 'Agadoo' never fails to get a smile.
And she continues to fascinate, amuse, test and delight us on a daily basis!
